If you've decided to upgrade the RAM, the first thing you need to think about is the type of RAM that you have in your computer. And there are many, many, many types of RAM. Don't just go out and blindly buy RAM. You need to figure out what kind of RAM is in your computer. You're going to need to check your computer manuals for help. If your computer is relatively new, you may be able to just go back to the store you got it from and ask the guy who sold it to you. You can figure out what kind of RAM you have that way.
You can also look on the internet. You can surf Google, put in the type of computer you bought and figure out what kind of RAM you have. If you buy the wrong kind of RAM, it may or may not fit, and it may or may not work. Don't buy the wrong kind of RAM. You want to make sure that you get what you need, and that it's going to work with your computer. Once you've bought the RAM and you need it installed, the best bet, especially if you're relatively new to computers, is to have a computer tech do it for you. Opening your computer, especially if it's new and on a warranty, will void the warranty.
Now for those of us that play with a computer all the time, this is no big deal, putting in RAM is a two minute process, it really is. But if you're not comfortable, the best thing to do is have a computer tech do it. It does take only a couple of minutes, and you don't have to install any drivers or any software. You put the RAM in, and then you restart the computer. Basically what you want is to see that Windows is going to pick up the RAM. And that's all there is to it.
