Re: Check the type of RAM

Can you please post your existing PC configuration?It would allow us to help you with the upgrade.Ideally if you have a Single RAM module then you can upgrade the same RAM with same Memory size and Frequency in Dual Channel mode for optimum performance for your system.About other improvements please post your current configuration and budget.

Re: Check the type of RAM

It depends on your processor and the board. If you have dual channel then you can insert another RAM but if you have only one you have to upgrade.

Re: Check the type of RAM

Have you got your motherboard manual? If you don't, have a look on the internet for it. It will tell you how much RAM the motherboard can hold, and what type to get. It's best to get the same speed as what is in at the moment and make sure it's the right type, or it might destroy the board.

I realize this is a bit late, but the T-series CPUs are for laptops. It has been my experience that many manufacturers limit the amount of memory the laptop can support, either in hardware or in the BIOS. The user manual for the machine will usually state this maximum value - although in my case the manual says 2GB max when it will actually support 3GB. Even though the CPU/chipset will support 8GB, the system is limited to 3. I tried to put 4 in it and it wouldn't boot. As a general rule, if you change memory, all sticks should be of the same make and model and timing.
