If you have repeated errors with your PC, maybe all you need is to check RAM and make sure your device has enough memory.
RAM or Random Access Memory is a type of super-fast storage that your computer uses to hold data it needs in the short term, so in case of having a full RAM, your device will slow down and face errors.
Let’s see how to check Ram on your Windows PC and Mac to make sure it’s not full.
How to check Ram on Windows 10?
- Click on the Start menu.
- Type “about,” and press Enter when “About Your PC” appears.
- Scroll down, and under Device Specifications, you should see a line named “Installed RAM”—this will tell you how much you currently have.
How to check Ram on Windows 7?
- Open the Start menu.
- Right-click on Computer and then click “Properties.”
- This should bring up a window with your computer’s basic specs. Under System, you should see a line denoting your Installed Memory.
How to check Ram on Mac?
Click the “Apple” menu in the upper-left corner of your screen and select “About This Mac.”
In the window that pops up, click the “Memory” tab to get a detailed look at the RAM in your Mac.
In a box in the upper-left corner of the window, you’ll see a number that shows the current total amount of RAM installed. It will read something similar to “8 GB Installed.”
Below that, you’ll see information on how many memory slots your Mac has and which size memory modules are installed in each one. This page also shows exactly which type or types of RAM modules you Mac uses.
If you need more RAM, the best thing about the Memory tap in the “About This Mac” window is that there is a link to a web page where Apple explains exactly what you need to do to upgrade it.
