The most important characteristics when changing RAM are: RAM size (SODIMM in your case) RAM type (DDR3) RAM version (PC3-10600) From what I found on Google, that 4GB ram you found has the same parameters, so there should be no compatibility problem. However, as far as I know you can only get the best perfomance when using a pair of two identical ram ...

The problem is caused by the Windows 7 updates. Before using the Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant, perform these steps: set Windows 7 updates to "Never install updates". Stop the update service by right clicking on the command prompt, and choose "Run as administrator". Type "NET STOP WUAUSERV" (without the quotes). It should say: "Windows update service is ...

Yes it will help. No, it won't become twice as fast. Don't expect miracles: That Core-i3 it is fitted with isn't the fastest CPU around. You most likely have 2 SO-DIMM's installed (2GB and 1GB) and you will need to replace both with a 4GB SO-DIMM to get the full 8GB. Just replacing the 1GB with a 4GB will get you 6GB in total and will, in your case, make ...

Here is what I've learnt about upgrading to Windows 10, in the past few days. Media Creation Tool The good thing is that the upgrade completes smoothly once the download has completed. The bad thing is that it doesn't resume interrupted downloads. The download is over 3GB which is almost 3x the amount downloaded by UpgradeAssistant. Common Problems ...

Your two quotes don't contradict each other. If you have a retail Windows license you can move it from one computer to another. Once you upgrade it from 7 or 8 to Windows 10 the new license replaces the one you had, you can't use the original license unless you uninstall Windows 10 (downgrade). Whether the activation server is actually smart enough to ...

This process is simpler and usually takes less time than upgrading from previous version of Windows: No Windows.old folder is created. You will get the same Windows installation but with more features. It's always good to make backup copy of all ...

Much like upgrading from a previous version of Windows to a newer one, your files will not be overwritten, but will be moved to a folder called "Winows.Old". It still would not hurt to backup, as other than during the upgrade, there are many other risks that can make you lose your files. And keep backups on external media or on the cloud.

The upgrade is supposed to work If you upgrade without backing up any data loss would be your fault. Even though the upgrade should work properly, I never do them. Any issues in your current OS will just be migrated to the new. You may feel like your OS is good and clean but chances are you have something in there from the time you have been using. ...

It depends on the application... Take glibc and gcc as an example. Gcc is only used when compiling things, glibc is used in runtime. When executing gcc after the upgrade, linux will take files of the new version. On the other side, the new version of glibc is only used after a reboot.

In case of the update of the kernel, the system won't use the new kernel until the reboot. In other cases you have to apply "common sense", for example: A running application will continue working after the update and libs that have been replaced will be used when a program starts. For example, you update tail because there was a security related fix. ...
