Steps and Precautions When Adding a Memory Card to Your Computer


How do I add a memory card to my computer? What's point of adding a memory card? Machine plus memory. So, how to install a memory card? How to choose right memory card? Here are answers for you one by one.

Precautions before adding memory First, when installing a new memory module, do not install a memory module that is too far away from original memory module in order to improve performance. For example, we install a 4 GB memory card next to a 1 GB memory card, which is not allowed. If it is set in this way, it will cause errors in memory buffer allocation operation, resulting in errors such as unable to open software and blue screens.

Second, when installing a new memory module, it is best to choose a memory module of same brand and model to ensure best compatibility between two memory modules.

The third point is to choose a memory module that matches the motherboard. A memory module that is too new will often conflict with an older model motherboard, resulting in overall unstable operation. In addition to motherboard compatibility, we also have to consider system compatibility. Systems like xp basically cannot support memory cards above 4gb.

Memory card selection guide When buying a memory card, we don't have to look at place first. We should pay more attention to mode of transmission. If space on ddr3 memory card is not too large, it is always right to choose ddr5 memory. As for brands, we can choose Kingston, Western Digital, Corsair, etc. All are good choices. In addition, in terms of memory modules, domestic manufacturers have relatively poor manufacturing skills, so you are best off choosing foreign brands.

Steps to add memory cards First, we need to disassemble desktop computer. After disassembly, we will see computer motherboard. Please note that this does not mean adding memory cards directly. two hours to discharge static electricity from motherboard and prevent damage to motherboard from static electricity when you install memory module. After standing still, we found memory card slot on motherboard and inserted newly purchased memory card into motherboard, so that installation of memory card is basically complete.

Then we will update driver. Although a newly installed memory module can be used without this step, chance of compatibility issues will be greatly reduced if this step is followed. First of all, we go to official website of flash drive manufacturer to download its official driver. If your flash drive is not a major brand and there is no standard driver, then you can also download master driver to automatically configure driver. Run downloaded file to install it. After installation, go to "My Computer", click "Computer" to enter device management, find memory device, turn off memory device and then turn it back on, and then restart computer so that memory card expansion can be completed. .

What does adding a memory card affectIntroduction to function of adding a memory card:

Memory is one of most important components of a computer; it is bridge that communicates with CPU. All programs on a computer run in memory, so memory performance has a big impact on computer. Memory (Memory) is also called internal memory

Its function is to temporarily store computational data in CPU and exchange data with external storage such as a hard disk. While computer is running, CPU will transfer data that needs to be calculated to memory for calculation. After calculation is completed, CPU will send result. The performance of memory also determines stable operation of computer.

Thus, adding memory can improve system efficiency, increase memory capacity, and allow multiple programs to communicate with CPU at same time.

However, you can also see from here that while memory size alone can improve certain performance, memory bandwidth and frequency are also very important. The frequency determines processing speed, so size should be larger. , and same frequency too. The higher better.

Let's talk about your configuration:

The CPU in this configuration is a dual-core CPU model E1200. This is already a very old CPU. Both CPU clock speed and bus are much smaller than current ones, so processing power is limited.

Then your video card is actually a graphics card with a core integrated into CPU. When this video card works, it must take up system memory because it does not have video memory itself, so graphics processing capabilities of this video card are clearly better than a separate video card, it is much worse.

The last thing is memory. In fact, your 2G memory is only enough in size. The frequency should be 1333, which is enough for everyday use. There is very little memory for other programs, so work of other programs is inefficient.

It is suggested that if you want to upgrade configuration, you can add another memory same as your current memory to form a 4G dual channel memory. Then add a discrete graphics card thatcan greatly improve system performance.

Memory module function introduction 2:

The main function of adding a memory card to a desktop computer is to increase memory capacity of computer.

Increase cache of a running program and improve overall speed of your computer.

Steps and Precautions When Adding a Memory Card to Your Computer

Expansion of knowledge:

1) Concept: A memory card is a computer component that can be accessed by CPU through bus and perform read and write operations.

2) How memory card works:

To put it simply, role of a memory card in a computer is equivalent to a bridge that is responsible for handling data exchange between data on hardware such as a hard drive, motherboard, graphics card, and processor. All computer data is transmitted to processor through memory module and processor for transmission and processing.

Why isn't data exchanged directly with processor? Because read speed and memory storage speed are highest, but data bus direct exchange speed on motherboard is very slow. You can also consider Memory as a data cache area has a high-speed cache area, which is also more conducive to computer processing speed.
