Memory upgrade
I plan to upgrade my Dell Laptop from 2 to 4 gigabytes of memory by replacing
the two one-gig components with two 2-gig ones. When I perform this
operation, what happens to all the stuff that's in memory? Is it stored
somewhere else? How do I prevent it from being lost?

RE: Memory upgrade
Make sure it is powered down before installing any memory upgrade. You should
be fine.

Stuff is not stored in memory. It's stored on the hard disk. Memory is only used when it's switched on. Changing the memory when it's switched off won't lose anything.

What do you call it when a blonde drives down the street with her head out the window?
Refueling.
