Do I need to reinstall programs on my computer if I upgrade my memory?

by on June 8, 2012

Q: I have a 7-year old Dell Dimension E520. It needs more memory, and Dell advised that I replace the current memory with 2-2gb modules. If I do that, will I need to reinstall all the programs I have on it now?
I have a 32-bit system running Windows Vista Professional. Thank you!

    Nope, you won’t need to reinstall any software for a RAM upgrade.

    If you replaced your harddrive (which it appears you’re not planning on doing) you would need to do so.
