You will need
  • - computer or laptop;
  • - channel RAM;
  • - software Everest Ultimate Edition.
Just want to draw your attention to the fact that replacing or adding RAM carries a certain danger – electrical devices. Therefore, any operation for integrating devices in the system block of the computer or laptop should start with a complete blackout.
Before selecting a RAM in the store or on the radio you must know the type and its characteristics. In the case of the laptop is enough to use the testing program that will give all the specifications of this device. Laptops are designed in such a way that the technical performance of the new memory modules should not significantly diverge with the same settings a new bar.
When replacing the memory modules for a desktop computer rely on the specifications of the motherboard. Each generation of motherboards supports all types of memory that were created before the release of the system Board. To determine the characteristics of the motherboard and RAM use Everest Ultimate Edition.
Install the utility and run it by double-clicking the left mouse button on the program's shortcut. In the opened window go to "Menu" and select "motherboard". In the device list, select the item "Operative memory". In the right part of the window displays information about installed memory. Print these or copy the data to a blank sheet of paper the frequency of the system bus (memory) and the name of the manufacturer.
In computer store you will be able to choose the right model. Most motherboards supports dual channel memory, so the best option would be the purchase of two laths of smaller volume than one plank of a larger volume.
Before mounting of RAM modules you need to power down the computer or laptop. It is desirable to pull the plug wires from the system unit from the socket or disconnect only the pilot. If the power supply has a switch, use it - it also allows you to stop the flow of current.
Open the side cover of the system unit. If necessary, remove the screwdriver the "+" mounting screws. Remove strap memory that is already and install the new one. Close the cover of the system unit, connect the power and press the Power button on the system unit to turn on the computer.
Laptop the procedure is slightly different. You should disconnect it, don't forget about the battery. Turn the laptop and remove the battery (the battery).
Remove the mounting screws and remove the bottom cover. Gently press a thin object on the bar-holder RAM, slide it slightly to the side (strap memory will automatically rise under the action of the spring). Replace previous operational memory of a new bar.
Cover the laptop bottom cover and fasten the retaining screws. Insert the battery, connect the power and turn on the laptop to check the efficiency of installed memory.
After the operating system call the applet "system Properties": right-click on the icon "My computer" and select "Properties". In the lower part of the window that opens, review the information about the hardware installed. Compare the amount of memory specified in this window and a real value volume that you have set. If it converges, therefore, the installation went without problems and everything was done correctly.
