    Ram is your memory.if you look underneath pc you see compartment covers.secured with screws.one of these is where you find memory.it will be a cover about the size of your hand.it wont do any harm to take them all off to find .they are only access points so dont worry .the correct compartment will have one or two oblong boards with chips on them dependant on how much ram is fitted.each ram is secured with spring clips which you just pull to the side to release.ram will raise to about 45 degree angle then you can pull out and relace with higher ram.

    slot new ram in place and press firmly down .done .replace cover.

Graphics lagging, stuttering in world of warcraft


Try this once
World of Warcraft System Requirements
The World of Warcraft system requirements are impressive. World of Warcraft requires a large amount of memory, hard drive space and, above all, a solid
internet connection.
For a Windows system, the minimum World of Warcraft system requirements are as follows:
- Intel Pentium III 800 MHz or AMD Athlon 800 MHz processor
- at least 512 MB of RAM,
- 32 MB graphics card,
- DirectX 9.0,
- 6.0 GB of hard drive space
- 4x CD-ROM
- 56k internet connection.
However, the recommended World of Warcraft system requirements are substantially higher:
- Intel Pentium IV 1.5 GHz or AMD XP 1500+ MHz processor
- 1024 MB of RAM
- 64 MB 3D graphics card
- broadband internet connection
- A two-button, scroll-wheel mouse is also recommended.
Millions of players connect daily to the World of Warcraft servers, and the amount of information being transferred from any one computer to the main terminals is enormous. But with all of these numbers and with all of these devices, frequent gamers know they will need to go above the minimal system requirements to experience the game fully. The minimal World of Warcraft system requirements only guarantee the game to run; they do not guarantee the game to run in a playable fashion.
There are some other known issues to keep in mind
- Some video cards may experience problems displaying certain textural effects while playing. Graphic issues may include colors shimmering across static textures, textures that appear solid green or white, and patches of texture or even geometry that are invisible.
- World of Warcraft/Burning Crusade requires the latest version of DirectX.
- Also, it is important that your video drivers are up-to-date and compatible with the latest version of DirectX. Outdated or incompatible video drivers can cause a variety of video and game play issues.
Something else you should keep in mind is that World of Warcraft had multiple expansion packs and down-loadable patches and these are also a factor into the World of Warcraft system requirements. Overtime, the specifications have shifted, and will keep shifting in the future; what was once acceptable to run the original game is no longer adequate for some expansions and patches. This will force players to upgrade their computers, if they wish to run the latest versions of the game. Gamers really have no choice; in order to compete, they must have the latest World of Warcraft software and a system that meets at least the recommended requirements; otherwise, you will keep stumbling around.

Hi there!

The main problem which is causing your Warcraft Dota to lag is your video card size is too small,

Dota requires at least 256 mb size.

It is lagging for certain games like World of Warcraft. I checked bios, and in only allow for 8 mb of the CPU to go to it. How do I allow more ram to be used?


It configures the system memory allocation reserved for the integrated video controller. Settings are 1MB and 8MB. The most effective solution is disable onboard video and put any Radeon 8 series with 256 or 512 MB RAM, they are cheap now and WOW will be fine, I confirm because use the Radeon 8600 512 MB card. Your computer has PCI Express slot and any Radeon fits perfectly onto it. Good luck!

Still lagging in WoW!


Answered originally by TimIsHectic:

Assuming you mean a bad framerate and not actual 'lag', the problem would appear to exist in your processor, as it is old and outdated. and only just fits the minimum requirements to RUN THE GAME, not run the game well.

Answer: You should upgrade your CPU to a Pentium Dual-core at least.

WoW System Requirements


Processor:
Minimum: Intel Pentium 4 1.3 GHz or AMD Athlon XP 1500+
Recommended: Dual-core processor, such as the Intel Pentium D or AMD Athlon 64 X2
Memory: Minimum: 512 MB RAM (1GB for Vista users)
Recommended: 1 GB RAM (2 GB for Vista users) Video: Minimum: 3D graphics processor with Hardware Transform and Lighting with 32 MB VRAM Such as an ATI Radeon 7200 or NVIDIA GeForce 2 class card or better
Recommended: 3D graphics processor with Vertex and Pixel Shader capability with 128 MB VRAM Such as an ATI Radeon X1600 or NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT class card or better

Laptop advice


I would recommend a Dell XPS. They have the 2ghz duo core processor, 4g ram, Intel x3100 acceleration with HD video/graphics card, and a STAC AC97 sound card. This is more than enough machine to keep you in the WOW anywhere for years. These run anywhere from $800 to $1000. Well worth the money.
