Tor si absolutely right, VMWare runs circles around virtual PC and would be better for any OS run under XP.. All my Linux installs are usually done either on a Live disc or under a Virtual window.

I don't really know, but it sounds more like a software issue rather than a hardware one.

Well I run Ubuntu on Virtual PC and when I increased the RAM ( Virtually ) It wouldn't start up! Then I tried reducing to to the original amount that it previously had and everything ran fine again! So what if I need to upgrade the RAM? I will have to Re-Install the whole OS?


The problem may be something to do with the new Ram you bought. WHy dont you check whether it is working with some other machines.. I think it may be defect.

just remove and install the new one. no other special thing to do. this has also been what you do in windows.with a virtual os, it wouldn't matter as it can automatically detect the amount of ram you have although you can change the values on what the virtual os would consume.
