It contains the information that allows your computer to perform basic functions like initiating the operating system or activating hardware. Your computer stores temporary information within the memory cells and refers to the data as it runs applications.If the information isn't in your computer's RAM, the computer has to refer to its hard drive. So if your computer doesn't have enough RAM to run multiple applications or even one big program, it may feel like it's just crawling along.
The only driver I didn't update is my RAM because I can't locate the area to update it.
While you might be concerned about whether RAM is seated properly, keep in mind that you cannot easily damage RAM or your system if it is not properly seated.
At most, when your system boots up it will not be able to detect and test the RAM, and will issue three beeps without booting, or will boot and not show the RAM as being available.
That's one of the ways it's different from read-only memory (ROM).
Your computer's ROM is hardwired into your machine's circuitry.
