Random Access Memory, in short RAM, is an easy access temporary storage for Operating System. When the Operating System tries to access data or information, it draws data into the memory module from the hard drive. The processor can access data from the computer’s main memory module where RAM is stored which is faster than accessing data from hard drive allowing multitasking. RAM makes it possible for the computer to do multitasking. If you run multiple programs at the same time or have problems loading newer programs into your computer then upgrading your computer’s memory is the key to making your computer performance run faster. Our certified technicians will professionally assess your memory module requirements and install the maximum RAM your computer requires for better and faster performance into its memory slots.

When do you need to upgrade your main memory?

  • The computer is Slow: If your computer is slow without any virus or old hard disk drive, you might need more RAM in your computer. This will enable the processor to get the files required for operation faster. The main memory holds all the current records as are necessary for processing. With time, the application sizes increase, the operating system have a more significant number of applications and needs more memory space. Upgrading memory gives your computer a chance for faster access to files and better performance.
  • Installing new applications: Newer applications have more functionalities and require more space in the disk and memory to perform operations. Installing any new piece of software like Adobe Photoshop CS suite requires higher memory. You should consider upgrading your main memory for smooth installation and performance.
  • Multitasking: On a computer, multiple tasks are running on your computer at the same time. For instance, a user may be editing videos and scanning the computer with antivirus and browsing the internet at the same time, all the applications that are running are loaded into the memory, if you multitask, adding more memory to your computer is a wise choice.
  • Installing a new operating system: Newer operating system comes with more functionality and better security for your computer. More applications are running on your new operating system to provide these services, which require OS to have more resident memory in the RAM. For a smooth upgrade to a new operating system, we recommend upgrading your main memory.
  • Freezing Computer or Frequent Crashes: Does your computer freeze when you load a new program or takes a long time to open a new program? Is switching between applications taking a long time than usual? If your answer is yes, then adding memory to your system will be the best for performance and to save time.
