You will need to know the DDR and Brand support for upgrading your Laptops/PC’s RAM
CPU-Z helps you to know the DDR, MHz and brand support for upgrading your RAM, however it does not suggest compatible upgrades and you have to manually look for details of RAM slots, and the kind of RAM installed in the laptop, by clicking the Memory and SPD tabs.
Although these software are generally accurate, it is a good idea to consult the user manual of your laptop for more details. Some laptops have RAM that is not removable or built into the motherboard. This can make upgrading RAM difficult and may require assistance from the brand’s support centre.
Find out how much RAM your laptop can take after you have learned that you can upgrade the RAM. The majority of notebooks support 16GB RAM. However, high-end gaming laptops may require 32GB RAM. Refer to the software mentioned above to determine how much RAM your computer can handle.
Step 2: Open the laptop’s back panel
Before you remove the battery from your laptop, turn it off. After you have removed the battery from your computer, remove the back panel with a compatible screwdriver. To avoid electrostatic discharge from your body you should make sure that you don’t touch any other metal objects. Locate the RAM module (pictured below) once you have opened the back.
The procedure will vary from one model to the next. If your laptop has non-removable battery, you can leave it alone. Some laptop models have an easy-access back that allows you to swap out or add RAM without having to remove the entire back panel.
Step 3: Addition of the new RAM
Many laptops have an additional RAM slot, you can use it to plug in the extra RAM module. If your computer does not have a different RAM slot, you can either remove the RAM or replace it with a larger RAM. If you have a laptop that has 8 GB of RAM and only one RAM slot, you will need to replace the 8 GB RAM module with something more powerful.
Press the clips that hold the RAM to remove it. Remove the RAM from the outside, avoiding touching the metal connectors. To add new RAM, position the RAM module correctly near its slot. Press the RAM gently at 45° until you hear a clicking sound.
Move the RAM down until it is locked in the clips. After the RAM has been installed, remove the laptop battery and rear panel. Your laptop should turn on and detect the new RAM module.
Your laptop should perform better if you upgrade RAM. It should also add some years to its life expectancy. If you are using an ancient laptop, you should definitely consider a new one from range of notebooks. Don’t forget our guides on how to select a new laptop based on the processor and graphics card.
