Latitude D630 – Windows 7 and 10

System Upgrades

Service Manual

Ensure you reference your service manual before carrying out upgrades:

The most recommended upgrade for this system is a Solid State Drive, here is my affiliate link to Crucial here. If purchasing a SSD or Memory Upgrade please use these links as I will get a tiny bit of commission which will help fund my guides.

SSD Drive Upgrade

Memory Upgrade:

This system supports 8 GB of RAM (2×4 GB Modules) however 8 GB of DDR2 RAM is more expensive than it is worth and the 32 Bit OS maxes out at 4 GB RAM. This can also be purchased using the affiliate link above.

Operating System

It is recommended to install Windows 10 on this system see Windows OEM FAQs and Downloads. The Windows Vista OEM or Windows XP Product Key won't be compatible with Windows 10 Installation Media however you can run Windows 10 Unlicensed. Windows 10 will have most of the system drivers required inbuilt however you can install the Windows 7 Drivers if you have any unknown Devices in the Device Manager.

Drivers and Downloads for Windows 7

Legacy BIOS

System Utilities (Windows 7 Only)

Chipset (Windows 7)

Card Reader

Video (Windows 7 Only)

Communications (Windows 7 Only)

Not all systems have a modem. If the Driver fails to install, there is no need to try and install the rest in this category.


Dell Wireless Cards

Audio (Windows 7 Only)

Check the Architecture of the link and then select download.

  1. Hello. Link to website Cricial does not work. How can i adjust the memory of D630 to 8 Gb ? As I know 4Gb – is the maximum.

    1. Crucial updated their website and hence the link was broken.
      To be honest DDR2 RAM has increased substantially in price. The cost of the 8 GB upgrade is probably more than the systems worth. I would recommend putting the money towards a new system.

    2. 4 GB of memory is enough to drive the system on a Latitude D 630. Spend your money on a new
      320 GB hard drive which is compatible with the 4 GB of memory. I am running Windows 7
      Professional 64 bit. It loads quickly and there are drivers available through Dell or
      Windows downloads. To adjust the memory you would need a different chip other than the D 630.

  2. A picture of a motherboard that I can see for a Dell Latitude d 630 Windows 7

  3. Don't bother with the DW1390 Wifi Card even though it works. Upgrade to a better Windows 10 Compatible wifi card. A half card with an adapter works better than the DW1390 card although the black cable will be a little tight. Speeds increased from around 10Mbs to over 40Mbs.
