What is RAM?
RAM is an acronym for “random-access memory” and is a form of computer data storage.
Similar to an individual’s “short term memory,” RAM stores data that must be quickly accessed by your CPU (central processing unit).
All operating systems – such as Windows XP, Windows 7, and OS-X – require a certain amount of RAM to perform at their best and a RAM upgrade may significantly speed up some of your processes.
Unlike your hard drive, however, the data that is stored on RAM is also only there as long as the computer is running and it disappears when your machine is shut off.
So if your computer is experiencing frequent errors or other serious problems and you’re unsure why, it may be an issue with your RAM.
When Does RAM Need to Be Replaced?
Your may need RAM replacement or repair for a number of reasons.
Here is a list of the three most common problems:
- It may have been dislodged – RAM can fall out of its slot and the computer will lose the ability to register it.
- It may be dirty – A build up of dust can affect any part within your computer, so if you suddenly start experiencing problems, it may be the result of a long and ongoing process.
- It may be broken – If your computer has received an electrical shock then the RAM may have burnt out. Also, if the RAM is old, it simply may have worn down.
If any of these problems occurred, then your computer will have some telltale signs of RAM issues.
Here are 4 of the most common symptoms that computers experience because of faulty RAM:
- Computer won’t turn on
- Computer unexpectedly shuts down
- Programs won’t start
- Blue error screens (BSoD)
Some of these symptoms may be signs of other computer problems that are unrelated to RAM replacement, however.
RAM replacement in Maryland from a computer technician is one way to be certain, as specialists can quickly determine a problem with programs and equipment that test whether hardware is still functioning like it should.
How to Repair RAM
While repairing the RAM itself is not something that can generally be done – you can troubleshoot and replace it.
If you are technically inclined, you can 1) diagnose the problem using Memtest86+, then 2) determine whether it can be fixed or whether it needs to be replaced.
If this does not work or you want the help of computer specialists, then you need to visit a RAM replacement specialist at your local computer repair shop.
