eMachines Official Site - - W3619 Product Details
Most any computer's (or motherboard's) Manufacture's Website will tell you the Maximum amount of Ram you can run in your system. Ive just never went over the max, nor do I know what "End of the World" saga is supposed to follow.
As for issues? lol
As you see in the specs above, this is one piece of...... simply made to trick people into thinking theyre getting Vista at a good deal. I cant believe this thing came with Vista and only 512MB. Its incredibly slow and even after a complete recovery it acts like its just itching to crash.
However, The screen went black as I tried to close a program running in the task bar while I was playing a Divx movie for the first time and Firefox did crash.
The motherboard (supposedly) calls for two 1GB sticks, and what this lady did was buy one 2Gb stick of Kingston 667MHz, and then left in the 512Mb stick in the other slot. (The site specs 512Mb 533MHz Ram, but this is a stick of Samsung 512Mb 333Mhz.)
I went ahead and pulled the old stick, just because of the speed difference. But I havent had it on long enough to tell any real difference.
But Im still wondering about the whole "Too Much RAM" thing. If it doesnt matter if you go over the maximum, then why does every site show a Maximum?
