I want to increase my RAM. I have only 2 GB RAM and have two slots in my Motherboard. Now i want to add another 2 or 4 GB RAM in my another slots. So my questions is… Do i need to install my Windows Operating System again after i add another RAM in my Motherboard ? Is there anything i need to know before i increase my RAM ? Anyone knows ? Thanks. :)

N.B

Anyone can use this thread for their Hardware/Software Issues ! If you want.

No need to upgrade any software, all you need to do is grab another ram stick and secure it in, if you’re going to about 8+ gig I recommend going to 64bit OS

No, you don’t need to change anything on the sytem.
Open your machine, install the compatible RAM and start the BIOS to see if everything is properly installed. Then init again your machine with your current OS.

You don’t need to re-install windows operating system.
Previously I was having 4gb of ram I upgrade to 6gb by inserting 2gb stick and it worked fine without even re-installation
Make sure you have 64 bit version of windows, If not install 64 bit version

Wait for a month or two, you’ll have to re-install windows anyway :D

If you are using windows use good cleaners/optimizers like ccleaner or tuneup utilities. I think you are on mac or linux

Depends on your current processor, if you right click “my computer” and click properties you’ll find out what processor you have
