  1. Some tips i have seen in terms of pc memory is there are specs such as SDRAM, DDR and so forth, that must match the requirements of the motherboard. If the pc’s motherboard is reasonably current while there are no main system issues, replacing the ram literally will take under a couple of hours. It’s one of many easiest laptop upgrade techniques one can envision. Thanks for giving your ideas.
