Add Memory to Your Computer

A lot of people think they are ready for a new computer when their current one begins showing signs of old age. If you have already performed other steps to speed your pc performance to no avail, you may want to consider adding memory (RAM).
This is a very effective way to save money by prolonging the life of your pc by a few years.

Computers are made with memory upgrades in mind. For instance, one of my previous computers, a DEll Desktop came with only 256MB (megabytes) of memory (RAM), but could be expanded all the way to 2GB. That means the computer could take 8 times the memory it came with when I bought it!
The first thing you need to do is look up what kind of RAM your computer uses and what the limit is. The best way is to peruse the website for your pc manufacturer and performing a search by model name or serial number.

PC Memory, or RAM After you've acquired your memory sticks, which are shown in the photo, you will need to unplug your pc and pop it open.

Memory slots You'll see slots, like the ones in the photo, where the RAM will be placed. Depending on how much you purchase, and how many total slots you have available, you may have to remove all the current memory sticks. Just pop them out, line up the teeth of the new ones with the slot, and firmly press down until you hear them pop into place.
Enjoy the money you saved!
