You can check prices for ram on Amazon.com, but the price ranges from $30 to $45 for each GB of ram. So the cost to you would be about $100. Yes, your Windows is genuine, most likely unless you bought it from some secondary source like Joe's Computer shop, who could have used a pirated copy. I have a brand new Sony and this same problem happened to me after an update. If you click on the window that tells you that its not genuine, there should be a link there that allows you to contact the Microsoft website. The website will check the system and take away the warning if it deems it ok after the check. If you did this already and it still has the problem, then it means that the validity checking software still thinks you are on a different machine (in error, of course). Since you bought the machine from a major manufacturer (presumably), that would be an issue that they would be responsible for, not Microsoft, since its an OEM software issue. If you bought the Windows from a box at a retail store, then it would be something that you would go directly to Microsoft for. On my machine, I went to the Sony support website and looked up the info for my exact model and they had a download fix for the problem.
