How to Upgrade Your Laptop with RAM

Do you have an old laptop that’s become sluggish? Are you tired of having your in-game experience ruined by performance issues? Random Access Memory (RAM), often simply called “memory”, helps store data that needs to be readily available for various programs to run. If you’re playing demanding games on an older laptop or using programs that take up a lot of memory, then chances are your laptop isn’t performing at its best. While most of the processing power is handled by your laptop’s graphics card, the amount of RAM you have will also help boost your overall performance. So you’ll be pleased to know that you can fix a lot of these issues by simply upgrading your RAM. This guide will detail how you can increase your laptop’s speed with Kingston FURY memory.

When do you need to upgrade your laptop’s RAM?

If your laptop is struggling to load programs and becomes unresponsive during crucial gaming sessions, then chances are it’s time for an upgrade. Computer RAM allows you to run data-intensive applications with ease and increases your laptop’s multitasking capabilities. Running multiple programs at once often leads to performance-related problems, as every application you’re running demands various amounts of memory. If you love to game, browse the web, stream, and chat online all at the same time, you’ll need to ensure you have enough RAM to handle all of those tasks. Thankfully, you don’t need to throw out your current laptop just yet! You can overcome poor performance by installing Kingston FURY Impact DDR4 or DDR5 memory.

Before you go buying new RAM it’s important to check whether your laptop supports further memory installation. You can check how much memory your laptop is using by opening Windows Task Manager. To do this, simply right-click the taskbar and select Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc). Click on the Performance tab to see how much memory is currently being used. The performance tab will also indicate how many physical memory slots are available, so make sure you have the required slots before adding to cart.

How do you install Kingston FURY memory?

You don’t need to be a technical wizard to install memory – in fact, you only need a screwdriver and a couple of minutes.

You’re all set!
