So how can you increase RAM on your computer? Conventionally, there are two ways to increase RAM – virtual and physical.
Virtual way to increase memory is that for its expansion would need to clear the memory from unnecessary processes. To view the level of utilization of the RAM, call the task Manager with CTRL+ALT+DEL and You will see how many megabytes of memory it takes for each running process. The output is clear: if You want to reduce the load on the RAM and thereby increase memory virtual way, disable all visual effects and increase the swap file (system Properties", section "Performance"), remove the Wallpaper from the desktop, as well as "widgets" and unnecessary programs that use the autorun.
A physical way to increase RAM is to install one or more memory modules, or replace a module with a weak to the more powerful and voluminous. Open the system block, you can see on the motherboard, four slots for RAM. Usually it is DDR, DDR II, DDR III, DDR 333, SDRAM, SRAM, PC3200, and others. Through the system BIOS you can check the version of RAM and the frequency (e.g. 1066 MHz). To get this information, call the BIOS when the computer starts, press DEL. Once You have learned the characteristics of the module, You can easily buy a new module of the same volume in a computer store and insert it into a vacant slot or module larger size, replacing the old RAM.
Owners of laptops will have more difficult – if You are not an expert, it is better to seek help in increase the RAM in service.
