How To Upgrade the Digital Memory

Bamboo came with 3 GB of RAM, which is not bad, but more memory digital is not a bad idea. You can immediately feel the extra RAM when you load programs. Extra RAM increases the processing speed and the loading speed of web pages. More RAM never hurts.

Step 1

Before you upgrade the memory digital, you have to know some things. How many bits your Windows has? If you run Windows 32-bit, then it can use up to 3.2 GB of RAM and so an upgrade over that amount would have no effect unless you buy a 64-bit Windows. How many memory slots you have and what kind of memory you use? This problem can be solved in several ways.

Step 2

You can look on the laptop specifications or the manufacturer's website to see what kind of memory digital you use and how many slots are available. Almost all laptops manufactured in recent years have two DDR3 memory slots. If you do not find this information or you do not trust the websites, you can use the free software CpuZ.

Step 3

Now you can decide what memory you will buy. You need to buy the same or better memory digital. For laptops it is important to buy SODIMM memory because that fits in them and it is important to get DDR3. If you find out that your laptop supports up to 667 MHz memory speed it is pointless to give money on a much faster memory because everything will run at the maximum speed supported by your laptop.

Step 4

In practice, the price is quite small and not worth any analysis. Remember that if you take the faster memory your notebook will run and buy without fear.
Now you need to know how much memory digital you will buy. That depends on how much memory you want and how many slots your laptop has. If you have a total of 2 GB of memory, in a 1GB + 1GB configuration, you can buy 2GB + 2GB for a total of 4 or even 4GB + 4GB, depending on your budget.

Step 5

If you have a total of 2 GB, but in one plate, then you can still buy a plate of 2 GB for the other slot, in case you have two you need to buy 4GB of memory digital. This is the most important decision. If you do not want to waste time with other purchases and returns, the stage of identifying the number of memory slots and what is in them is very important.


It is very important to know how to install the memory digital in the laptop. Each laptop is different, but basically on the back of the laptop are some screws that hold a plastic plate which is usually above the memory digital and the hard drive.

The plastic plate should be marked. If not, you will need to remove the screws that hold the removable plates and see what's under them, but do not open the entire laptop. Use a cross screwdriver and do not deform or force the bolts when you look for the memory digital.
