Published 1st October 2015 | Article by KingstonMemoryShop
Since the launch of the Windows 10 upgrade, we are seeing that a lot of users are being told their “computer is low on memory”.
Here we look at the best ways to fix your memory issues after the upgrade:
1. Adjust your computer for the best performance
- On the start screen, select the ‘Desktop’ icon
- Right click on ‘Computer’ icon and select ‘Properties’
- Select ‘Advanced System Settings’ to go to the ‘System properties’ window.
- Select ‘Settings’ > ‘Adjust for best performance’ and ‘Apply’ then ‘OK’
- Now just restart your computer
2. Install more RAM
To install more RAM, you will firstly need to check the manufacturer and series / model of your computer, laptop or desktop. Once you have these details, head to our memory finder selecting your model from our memory configurator. Our memory finder will then show you all available compatible memory RAM upgrades with your laptop or desktop computer and you can have it delivered straight to your door!
3. Increase your ‘virtual memory’
As soon as your computer becomes low on memory, it automatically tries to increase its virtual memory known as the paging file to help your computer run more efficiently.
If this doesn’t work, you can increase it manually to up to a maximum size determined by the amount of RAM you have. For help on manually doing this, see the Windows website.
4. Scan your computer
Scan your computer to check for third party programs such as viruses or spyware, as these can often take up a lot of RAM.
5. Turn it off and on again!
Well we had to suggest this didn’t we!
If your computer is running slowly, a reboot can often help. It’s much more likely that your computer does need more RAM, but it’s definitely worth a try!
