All that's going to do is delete the memory image from when the computer
went into hibernation. Since you now have more memory, the stored image
doesn't match. Windows will simply do a fresh bootup. When next you
hibernate, the hiberfil will be enlarged to match the new memory size.
All is OK, hit <enter> now and enjoy the improved performance.

*vista memory upgrade*
I just bought a Compaq PC SR5110NX 3800 from Frys. It came ready to go
out of the box with Vista Basic. It came with 512 of RAM. I purchased
the correct Kingston 1 GB PC2-6400 800MHz DDR2. I confirmed this was
correct from the Kingston website as well. When I installed the 1 GB and
started the computer, I received the following message:
"Windows Resume Loader
Your system's memory configuration has changed since it entered
hibernation. If you proceed, the data needed to resume from hibernation
will be lost. To preserve this data, turn off the system power, restore
the orginal memory configuration and reboot the system. Otherwise, press
<enter> to delete restoration data and proceed to system boot menu.
Delete restoration data and proceed to system boot menu."
Anytime I have updated memory in the past I have never seen this
message. I have a pretty simple understanding of computers and anytime I
see a message with "restoration data" I'm worried to proceed. The
computer was not in "hibernation mode" during the installation.
I called Compaq and of course got someone in India. After doing
everything she told me to do, nothing worked, however, after 66 minutes,
I asked her the question a different way and she told me to go ahead and
hit enter. Am I confused or scared of nothing? If I hit enter will I
destroy some needed data or is it simply saying that the 512 MB memory
restoration data will be destroyed and updated with the new 1 GB?
Any help or advice would be appreciated. Frustrated in Moon Valley.
