RAM? I don’t think you can download that…I’m pretty sure you need to buy hardware.

You cannot. RAM is hardware. You have to go out and buy some.

That’s like being at home and magically wanting to put gas in your vehicle’s tank.

GQ simply because he really didn’t know.

You have to buy sticks of memory to put onto the memory slots of your motherboard inside your computer. This scanner will tell you what sort of memory your computer needs. You don’t have to buy it from Crucial, though, just look at the DDR type, write it down and search for memory at, where it might be cheaper.

RAM modules are thin cards that you install inside of your desktop or laptop computer. Depending on the make or model of your computer, you will have to use a different type of RAM card. They typically look a lot like this, although they may vary in size.

If you tell me what type of computer you have, I’ll help you figure out what type of RAM you need to buy, and where you can get it from?

All types of computers, including Macs and PCs use RAM, and you’ll have to buy the RAM appropriate for your machine. If you’re happy to figure this out on your own, you can use the advisor tool at this website:

Hope this helps.

This video does a reasonable job of explaining how to install RAM in a MacBook Pro. It’s reasonably similar for installing it in any type of laptop, although how you get to the cards may vary. Usually the manual will explain.

@MrGeneVan – What @richardhenry said.

No…He’s looking for these silly.
No charge @MrGeneVan but don’t say I never did anything for you.

Screw RAM. How do I download a blueray DVD drive?

SeventhSense's avatar

That I’ll have to charge you for…ok what the hey, i’m feeling generous. Right click and save as BLUERAY.DVD…you might need a driver or still has some bugs.

I see. Moses, The Ram. Succeeded by Yehoshua, The Fish. Your love of Jewish mythology has cramped your hard drive. You need to buy a new one. But not on a saturday, or you will have to get stoned. If so, I suggest you also get a bong.
