Default RAM Upgrade

Took the risky step (as I'm a useless DIY cunt) of upgrading the memory in my laptop as it was running like a fucking dog now that I'm using it for proper work stuff rather than just playing movies at home. Disk and CPU were maxing out all the time. Anyway, wasn't too difficult a job, only panic moment was when it wouldn't switch back on, but that's quite normal - just had to disconnect and reconnect the battery - some static discharge thingy or other - and all was good.

Runs much better now 4GB really wasn't enough for Windows 10, 8GB is fine

I don't really play games any more 8GB is fine for everything I do, think gamers probably need a lot more than that but I am a grown up and have to do grown up stuff Allegedly...

8 is still enough for most games tbh, though it makes sense to have 16 at least.

Disk is still a slight issue, it still maxes out at 100% sometimes for no apparent reason, just "system" processes. Switched most things off according to various forum suggestions but it's still churning the disk at times, although it doesn't really cause a slowdown. Should really have bought SSD

Yes that's one of the reasons I upgraded from Windows 10 back to Windows 7. It was always doing 'something' and it had control of my machine, not me.

Get an SSD ffs. They're cheap and easy to fit, and will make the machine ten times more tolerable to use.

Yeah but I'd presumably have to move the OS onto the SSD, as that's where all the FUCKING SHIT happens. And then just use by 1TB HDD as an additional bulk storage type drive.
