    Adding RAM ?


    I have 4 GBs ram with one slot empty.
    You reckon it's worth the money to get another 4 GB stick ?

    I can get one for $45 US.

    8GB of ram would be better. It is best to use matching pairs

    I bit the bullet & ordered a 4 GB companion to the one I have.

    Now all I have to do is to figure out how to take the gateway apart to add it.

    Could you give me some help about taking apart my computer & adding the RAM I ordered ?

    Own a Philips screw driver? That's all it takes. You just remove the two screws holding the side panel on, and you're in.

    Good on you David. First image is a little small, best I could find to edit on.

    Unplug first.

    Excellent antspants.
    A picture is worth a thousand words.

    My ram should be here in 2 to 6 working days.

    I looked for pictures on Google but couldn't find any like yours.

    Thanks a bunch for posting them.

    +10 after I spread some around......

    An absolute pleasure David, glad to give something back to you.

    its a lot easier now than it was in the earlier days of computing with 30-pin ram modules / 256 KB ram. Ram went in either way from "memory" < see what I did there
