Question about PC Desktops
I want to add more Ram and need a diagram of the mptherboard
Hi, If all you want to do is add some more RAM you probably don't really need a motherboard diagram.
Do you know what sort of RAM you need is the first thing?
Before you open the PC make sure you will not be voiding any warranty that you may have had when you purchased it.
If you are just adding more of the same kind of RAM then you will have no problems. Open the box and locate the sticks of RAM sat in their slots you won't be able to miss them. (If you haven't seen RAM befoer then do an "image" search on Google for RAM and have a look, then you will find it easily.)
Next you carefully pop the little clips back from each end of the stick that you are removing. Then gently lift away from the board.
When putting the RAM back make sure to put it around the right way so that the little luggs fit into the base of the RAM. The base of the RAM will have little gaps where the luggs fit. Carefully align the RAM with the connections keeping it straight once it is sat in the correct position you will need to press quite firmly to get it to clip in. The clips on either end will click into place as you connect the RAM stick automatically so then you will know that you have seated it right.
Once you have added what you need boot up your system before closing the box to test the new RAM in case you have not seated any of the sticks properly.
Windows will recognise the updated RAM and will adjust accordingly. You can check that it is all recognised by going through "Control Panel" or "Settings" from the "Start" button and choosing "System". Then when that window comes up, near the bottom you should see where it tells you how much RAM is on the system along with your processor speed etc.
Hope this is helpful, let me know how you go
