How To Upgrade RAM

Dear Computer Lady,

My mom has a desktop computer and she needs more memory or ram to use it. She loves cooking sites and recipes. What I want to know is how we get more RAM? She has 2- 512 chips now. Can we replace them with 1 or 2GB Chips? Please let me know, this just might be a Christmas present for her!

Thank you and have a nice day. Roberta in CA


Dear Roberta,

More memory would indeed be a great Christmas present for your mom!

I can’t tell you exactly what to buy for memory. Different computers take different types of RAM, they have different numbers of slots, and the maximum amount of RAM that a computer will be able to use varies from one model to the other.

I can, however, point you in the direction of a great website that will help you figure out exactly what you need for RAM and give you an excellent price for the upgrade.

All you need to know is the manufacturer and model number of your moms computer, and you will be able to look it up on their site.

Have a great Christmas! Elizabeth
