Upgrading your laptop
RAM memory upgrade is one of the most frequent upgrades. The reason is usually:
- Laptop "sticks" too much while running
- Laptop takes too long when I open a program
- Laptop takes too long when I open more than 2 tabs in your browser
- Mouse sometimes sticks when I open a program
- Laptop takes too long to open a photo or video
These symptoms are a sample of problems that may be caused by an insufficient RAM.
Can I put all the memory I want?
The memory that can be placed depends on the limitations specified by the Laptop manufacturer. For example, a laptop accepts 2 memories of 8GB (total of 16GB) but the laptop manufacturer has a total of 8GB of limitation. In such cases, typically manufacturers make updates (not always) BIOS to extend compatibility to a larger memory.
What type of memory can I use?
If we talk about a last 20 years laptop there are the memories DDR, DDR2, DDR3, DDR3, DDR4. Even in the same generation memories, there are different frequencies of operation, so in the case of an upgrade we follow the compatibility standard of the manufacturer.
