dual channel memory support
  

i have a Acer Aspire 5100 laptop. it comes with a 1 GB DDR2 memory of which 256 is set for video graphics, the balance 766 Mb is for use. i am using windows vista home premium, but my system works slow.
if i upgrade the memory to 2GB DDR2 , will it improve the performance.
one more issue is that i probably have 2 modules of 512 each in the two slots.
if i buy a 2 gb RAM, can i keep the other 512 RAM module.
since i have to take out one module in order to fit in the 2GB.
also i read somewhere that it is better to install 1 GB in each rather than a single 2 Gb module. my laptop supports dual channel memory support.
can anyone guide me regarding this

Re: dual channel memory support

Dual Channel DDR structure uses Twin Bank mode, and requires two memory modules plugged into the appointed DIMM slots in order to enable 2 Channel DDR.

There is no such thing as Dual Channel DDR Memory Modules. Regular DDR is installed two modules at a time, each module controlled by a separate channel of the memory controller.

The following data refers to the various ways in which the dual channel controllers are implemented on various motherboards.
