I ordered a pair of new DDR3 RAMs, I will install them to the empty RAM slots once they arrive.
What would happen if I hibernate my PC, then install the new RAMs, and then wake it up from hibernation? Would the system give an error message, or would it wake up alright? Do I need to shut down my PC before adding the new RAM units?
Of course, restarting PC after such a critical hardware change is important and affordable; and I will definitely do so. But I'm just curious about this, I am asking this question out of curiosity. I want to learn how the system would behave if I were to not restart it.
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
Mainboard: Gigabyte P55A-UD3R, rev 1.0
RAMs: DDR3, 1333MHz
