Adding Memory to a PC

  RegScriv 22:10 25 Oct 2013

I've just purchased an additional 2 x 4GB kit of memory from Crucial, having used their system scanner to ensure that I bought the right ones. My existing PC has 4 slots with the 2 x 2GB memory modules fitted in alternate slots, i.e. it's configured memory/slot/memory/slot. I believe that I should move the existing memory so that the 2GB modules are next to each other then fit the new 4GB memory in the next 2 slot next to one another, i.e. 2GB/2GB/4GB/4GB. Am I right, can anyone advise please.

I hope you have a 64 bit OS.

No don't move them. They are supposed to be alternate. The slots are numbered 1,3,2,4. so you should have 2GB/4GB/2GB/4GB or 4GB/2GB/4GB/2GB

Most motherboards have coloured slots so it is easier to see the banks click here

Many thanks. Things have changed since the last time I fitted memory, and it is a 64 bit OS. Thanks both for help.
