To see if your computer can use more RAM, the easiest procedure is to go to There you will see a button to use their automatic tool called
the Crucial Scanner. Run it, sit back and it will check your system for installed RAM
and if it is capable of additional RAM. An Internet browser window will open to show you the installed RAM, and what your computer is capable of using. If the installed RAM is not the maximum your machine can utilize, It will show you multiple choices of RAM to purchase. Sometimes, just doubling what's installed is enough, other times it's beneficial to get the maximum. It depends on what you do with your computer. and what you want to spend.

I've done this on all my computers, and others.
