Default Question before installing new 2GB Ram - 05-15-2009, 03:55 PM

Hi, my mini 9 should be coming in next week (Dell Outlet) and my 2GB ram module will be here today. I looked at the installation process for putting in the 2GB of ram, but is there anything else I need to know such as changes I'll need to make in the bios after turning the mini back on?

You will want to make sure you did a shut down and not a hibernate before doing the install. If you are running Windows, be aware that the hibernate file will grow to match the RAM size.

I'd rather just never hibernate. I would just disable that from the control panel, right?
