    Default How to check and test RAM please?

    Hi I have two questions -

    How do I check how much RAM I have?

    And, I thought RAM was a row of chips that you manually can upgrade as new and install as new? I.e. in my old laptop I unscrewed the back of the machine and simply ordered an upgrade of RAM - is that correct? Is that what I will need to do again or is RAM also embedded in a hard drive?

    Thanks!!

    Hi windows,

    Your hard drive has memory on it, called cache, but that is much different and separate than the memory in your computer. Those are still chips that can be upgraded, removed, etc.

    As for memory, the standard test is Memtest. You can download an .iso file that you burn to a disc and boot from.
