Have you ever been doing things on your computer when all of a sudden everything comes to a screeching halt? Frustrating isn't it? If your computer is more than a year or so old, you may think that it might be time to get a new computer. After all, the technology changes so fast that it doesn't take long for your computer to become obsolete. However, chances are you just need to upgrade the RAM memory on your machine.
So much of what we do on our computers is memory intensive. If you are anything like me, you are doing more than one thing on our computer at a time. When I have my internet browsers open, I normally have multiple tabs on my browser on different websites. As I am writing this, I have 8 different tabs open. There are other programs running in the background. Each of those background programs and tabs use some of your computer's RAM memory capacity.
