Greetings and apologies,
I read through the KB on this one but wanted to be absolutely clear. I'm running 2gb (2- 1gb sticks) of memory in my x60s 1704 and want to add more. OS is XP Pro 32 bit. I understand my machine will see 4gb but only utilize 3. If I pull one 1gb stick and replace it with a 2gb stick am I anomaly free? Do I need to reconfigure settings anywhere? Does this upgrade make sense to you? 2gb sticks are inexpensive and could really use more ram. Go/No Go? Negligible return? Appreciate your patience and kind reply in advance.

Ok, just so I'm clear. A 1gb stick and a 2gb stick for a total of 3gb is doable for my x60s and I will be able to utilize all 3gb in XP 32 bit. Yes? Appreciate your patience.

yes thats what I have in my x61T edit:
with x64 bit you might be able to use 8 GB ram I'm really not clear on which models can but some of the members here run 8 GB the GPU limits you to 3 GB even with 64 bit OS

Update: Pulled one of my Crucial 1gb sticks and Installed a 2gb Kingston Value stick for twenty-three bucks in its place. Machine booted to 2.99 gb of memory. All is well. Thanks for the input.
