   You can do the upgrade but beware you will need
    to get inside the system to install the memory
    which will require you to unscrew screws or
    release levers or both
   Every system is upgradable to a point – the
    limitations are either physical (mother board) or
    software (operating system software).
Installing memory into
your system
   Be careful to shut down your system (PC or
    Laptop) and pull the power plug.
   Desktops can have wires and cables or other
    obstacles in the way of installing RAM
   After shutting down a laptop pull the power cord
    and remove the battery, locate the access panel
    for memory (usually on the bottom but may be
    under the keyboard).
   PC and Laptops memory can be hard to locate in
    the system and install, sometime best left up to a
    professional for installation.
Installing memory into
your system
   Installing RAM into a PC is sometimes easier if
    you have a full size PC, the small form factor
    systems can prove to be a little more tricky to
    install RAM.
   You may have to move or re-move cables from
    the PC to get to the RAM into place
   You may even loosen cables that cause boot
    errors
Additional memory information

    other on-line store but getting it installed and
    working can take some doing on your part.
   You can’t always mix memory speed.
   There are at times when brand incompatibility will
    show up.

   In just under ten minutes on average an un-
    protected computer will be infected with a virus
    and/or spyware.
   Some anti-virus programs are invasive to the
    resources available on your systems and this can
    really slow down your computer system.
Anti-Virus & Anti-spyware

   The free anti-virus & anti-spyware like AVG,
    Avast, Malwarebytes and PC Tools all have a free
    pared down or manual run version available.
   Having protection running in the background is
    always the best way to protect your system,
    having a second piece of software to run is
    another great way to protect your system.
