Looking to Speed things up well then ....
it's time to Upgrade your PC Memory.
hmm......What Should I do first?
First know which Brand of computer you have like; Acer, Toshiba, IBM, HP, Compaq.
Then you may want to look under your computer for a Manufactures PN part number.
Write down the Part number on a piece of paper.
Next, look for the Model number or Series on the front or bottom of your notebook computer.
Write down the Model number on a piece of paper.
Use the information you wrote to find the correct part for your computer memory upgrade.
Use the following Memory upgrade helper link to select the right memory for your upgrade.
[ Memory Upgrade Selector ] with estimated price.
Make sure to notice
how many memory slots your mainboard provides.
You'll also need to make sure your motherboard supports
the type of RAM you want to use, typically ddr2 and ddr3
Most new notebook motherboards can accept at least 4 GigaByte of memory and many accept 8GB or more
Check your systems operation manual guide, "that little book" that came with your computer. There should be a memory upgrade section which explains upgrading your systems memory.
Make attention to what is the correct memory module type is and what BRANDS may be certified and compatible before upgrading your system.
Always confirm which type of MEMORY BANK (also know as slots or sockets) your system has.
Also note the number of pins the memory module may have, so by doing this you can insure a perfect fit and compatibility.
Confirm which kind(s) of RAM your motherboard support:
ddr also known as DDR1, DDR2, DDR3
What does Desktop RAM memory look like? well... just have a look at this image below.
it's showing desktop memory modules with blue heatsinks to disperse heat.
These are *DIMM memory modules, a short name for (Dual in-Line Memory Module)
A Dual In Line Memory Module (DIMM) is a PCB that consists of a number of DRAM chips and is used to support a 64-bit or wider memory bus.
A 184-pin DIMM is usually found in desktop computers or servers.
The term memory module refers to a printed circuit board on which several memory chips are mounted. The memory chips are usually DRAM chips, but recent system designs use cache chips mounted on memory modules as well. Memory modules are installed on the PC’s motherboard. They are used to make up the initial assembly and are installed into dedicated sockets. The number of DRAM chips mounted on the module and the capacity of the memory module is determined by the system. The design of the module, which determines a systems maximum memory capacity, is also based on the systems architecture.
What does Notebook or Laptop memory look like? well... just have a look at this image below.
it's showing laptop memory modules found underneath a laptop keyboard or in a designated door slot on the bottom of your laptop/notebook computer.
Small or Short Dual In Line Memory Module (SO-DIMM) is a PCB that consists of a number of DRAM chips and is used to support a 64-bit or wider memory bus.
A 144-pin DIMM is usually found in portable or laptop mobile computers.
Sizes of Memory
512mb (mega byte) megabytes / meg / megs
1024mb = 1gb
1gb (giga byte) gigabytes / gig / gigs
8gb = 8192mb
Standards and styles of RAM modules and associated speeds of Memory
The current performance of a DIMM memory modules ranges from Speed, for example:
cl = cas latency
Typically sold online showing these type of details
DDR3 chips on the tip of a finger to give you reference how tiny and yet powerfull it can be.... WOW !!! very amazing.
