Asus Laptop: Non-Techie's Review
on May 31, 2012
I thought installing RAM would just confuse/frustrate me. I was afraid I'd break something or it just wouldn't work. Fact of the matter is, anyone with a tiny screwdriver can install RAM. You needn't be a computer whiz. It's surprisingly easy to install on my Asus.
No 'joining an online community'
No programs to download
No research needed
No long manuals to read
No 'finding the RAM' when you power-up
Just plug it in & it works.
Remove battery, unscrew the bottom, slide it in, put it all back together, power-up. -Instant RAM. Accessible & ready to go. If you want a short, visual tutorial, do a YouTube search for - installing RAM.
Once installed on my Asus, I right-clicked on 'My Computer,' clicked 'properties'. The system indicated that I now had 8gb RAM, however, I needed to click the refresh link provided. Voila.
There's nothing to be scared of. You won't break anything. ;-)
The easiest, most affordable way to upgrade a computer & extend its lifespan.
