But both your slots are filled because they’ve used 512 MB in each slot so in order to get, say a 4GB of RAM you have to remove each of those and insert larger model modules into each one. And then you take the other ones and get to your friend who likes to collect RAM, place it on a wall or something like that, but you’re not gonna be a usual RAMs I’m trying to say, You’re gonna have to get new RAM replace that RAM you have a Mac touch remembering and after that with most of the newer community turned on and you’re in Windows and immediately recognize it.


Now you right click on it and you’ll see the drop down menu and down to the bottom here click on Properties. And here it comes up the list of everything on your computer Right on the bottom as you can clearly see your RAM of 4GB of memory and everything is gonna run all a lot faster.
