Topic: Will upgrading my RAM improve video?
If I double my RAM to 4Gb, would I notice any difference in the use of Videos on VDJ? Sometimes now they seem to struggle to play and become jittery at times.
I use mainly mp4 video files.

Go to a computer parts store and buy an OEM copy of windows 7 or vista whichever you prefer - 32 bit (that's important.)
Format your computer, wipe it out. Then install your new O/S. GO to Dell's website and D/L any drivers necessary for your motherboards video chip and sound, high speed connection and so forth.
Your computer should be able run videos, I do video shows with an ATOM (dual core) net-top and a Numark DMC-2
The biggest thing with laptops is the crap that manufacturers install on them get rip of that and you should have clear sailing.
P.S. make sure you back up your document files or they'll be gone once you format.

Thanks for your replies.
I have kind of done that a little while ago. I backed everything up and wiped the comp and started from scratch. The only real programmes that automatically get installed with my reset discs are a free trial of Microsoft Windoes and an Antivirus programme which I deleted straight away as I don't need them.
The annoying thing aswell that I have just noticed is that I have two slots for RAM so presumed that I would have a 2Gb strip in there from factory and all I had to do was by another 2Gb. However on looking they have put 2x 1Gb strips of RAM in. Buggers. lol. Now I will have to buy 2x 2Gb'
