Scenario 2- Face to Face
Sarah computer is running slow and she believes that the problem may be due to lack of RAM.
Technician: Hi there Sarah .what seems to be the problem?
Sarah: Hi josh, my computer is running really slow when I run multiple programs I think the problem may be with the RAM.
Technician: ill check that first then.
First click the Start button, right-click Computer, and then click Properties. In the System section, next to Installed memory (RAM), you can see the amount of RAM the computer has.
Technician: You only have 2GB so I think you may need an upgrade. Though I’ll run another check to make sure that it is the RAM that is causing the problem, can you open 4 of the programmes that you regularly use.
Sarah: okay sure
Click start then in the search bar type ‘Task Manager’ then on the taps at the top click the performance tab. If the figure next to "Physical Memory". is consistently at or close to 100 percent of memory, additional RAM will be useful.

RAM can only be inserted one way so make sure you face it in the correct
