If it save's him using virtual memory (Laptop HDD's are often slow) then yes, I imagine it would be.

so like you said earlier, i just decided to go with 2 gigs so i dont have to mess around with anything else. i can allways get more ram later if i keep the laptop for a while.

Since when did he need to change the boot.ini file for his laptop?

Have you seen it? I highly doubt he purchased it for larger programs to be ran.

In that case, I would recommend getting a 64 bit operating system and putting as much RAM as you can.

i guess im going to try out the 2 gigs first for a little while. then upgrade it a little more later.

to my knowledge, didnt the computer have a recall on it or somthing for the motherboard? i cant remember. i do know i still have a year left on my warranty tho
