Wether you're an expert when it comes to upgrading PCs, a beginner who doesn't have a clue, or you're somewhere in the middle, Crucial can satisfy all your memory upgrade needs to boost your PC performance.What is memory? (skip this part if your not a beginner)
Memory, or RAM (Random Access Memory), is a crucial component in any PC. It is where the Operating System, applications and data that is currently in use are kept in order for them to be quickly accessed by the processor. The more RAM you have in your PC, the more data that can be stored in memory and the quicker data will be accessed. The data inside a RAM module (memory stick) is different to that of a Hard Disk or floppy disk, as the data is only there for as long as your PC is running. If you turn off your PC, the memory loses its data, but when it is turned back on, the operating system
RAM is often compared to a person's short-term memory.How do I know what RAM to buy for my PC?
There are a number of ways you can find out what RAM you have in your PC.1) The first thing to do would be to check your computer or motherboard (mainboard) manual and locate the section on RAM. It should tell you here, what RAM your PC can take, it's speed, it's type and the maximum configuration.
2) If you are buying from Crucial, then you will be getting inside your PC in order to fit your new RAM. So if you open your PC case having switched off your PC and unplugged all your cables, you can quickly locate your RAM, which should be one or more green sticks of memory slotted into a thin black RAM slot. These will normally be 2 or more slots right next to one another somewhere near the processor (which has a large heatsink fan on top of it!). A diagram in your manual will also point out its exact location.
Once you know where it is, you can remove the memory by un-clipping the white clip that locks the RAM in place and lifting them out gently.
If you look at the sticker on the side of the RAM, it should tell you the speed, size and type, such as PC2100, 256MB and DDR.
