I am considering adding several DIMM chips to my computer, but I do not
know what benefits to anticipate. I hope that this will cause the
system to run more reliably than it currently does. The system
frequently encounters "Not Responding" dialogs and takes a long time to
recover from various graphic or cad operations and it exhibits the
"spinning wheel of death" during internet sessions. This has not always
been the case, but I recently added several new software packages. The
system has been checked for virus infection and malware and is free
from any malicious files.
The computer configuration: MS Win 7
Ultimate 64 bit SP1, Intel Core i5-2520M CPU @ 2.50 GHz, 8.0 GB RAM,
nVidia Quadro 3000M Graphics Card.
Would it be advisable to add a
couple of double inline memory modules in hopes of remedying this
situation? If so, how much memory would be recommended? Obviously, it
would be preferable to spend the lowest possible amount.
Software/Hardware used: AutoCad, SketchUp and Layout, Photoshop, MS Office, MS Project, Planswift Estimating Software, Adobe Acrobat, Google Earth, Internet Browsers, etc.
