How To Increase Ram
A tech expert explains how easy it is to increase the Random Access Memory in your computer, and shows you the sort of website to buy it from, installation instructions and all.
Now, many people believe that the best way to increase the speed of your computer is to buy a faster processor. Well, that's not necessarily true, and in fact, buying more Ram for your computer is often easier, more cost effective, and results in a faster system. So by Ram, what am I talking about? I'm talking about Random Access Memory, or that's just memory, to you and me.
So let's have a look at a couple of places that can help you increase the Ram in your computer. Now, one of the main places to go to on line is called 'Crucial.' They provide memory for a lot of the main computers out there and another one is 'Kingston.
' Now, the benefit of going to Crucial, I'm just looking at their website here, is that they provide you with this system scanner tool. Now, obviously to put memory into your computer, you needing to open up the computer, make sure you're buying the right kind of memory sticks, making sure that they're the right capacity, and so on. And in fact, with this Crucial system scanner tool, it actually performs a system scan that takes a look inside your computer and tells you what you have in terms of spare capacity, and what Ram it is that you need to buy.
Let's give it a go. So, the system scanner really doesn't take very long to load. As you can see here, there's a scan in progress, and it tells you even 'your system report will be displayed shortly'.
So, that's the report over, and it's correctly identified my computer as a Dell Dimension desktop PC, and it's told me how much Ram I currently have in my computer, and also what I could be putting in there instead. What's more, it's told me exactly the kind of Ram that I need to buy for this computer. Now, another benefit of buying your Ram in this way is that Crucial, because they know exactly what computer you're buying for, guarantee that it's the right memory you're buying, but also they provide you with instructions tailored to your computer to install that memory.
Now the thing is, is that the memory is installed inside the computer, so you're going to need a screwdriver, either on a laptop or on a desktop PC, to get it in there. These guys will make sure that you get all of the information that you need to perform that upgrade safely and easily. And that really is about it.
It provides you with a lot more performance out of your system, and it's a lot cheaper sometimes than buying a new computer.
