When do you need to upgrade the memory?
You were using an older version of an operating system, now you want to upgrade the operating system. You were using some other programs, they are also upgraded, and you want to use the upgraded versions. However, the system requirements for the higher versions are not supporting your present system. Higher versions needed higher processor speed, higher RAM, advanced graphics and greater storage capacity. Your system has the processor with sufficient speed, but RAM is not sufficient, and the motherboard has the capacity to take more RAM. In such cases, you can upgrade the RAM to run the upgraded software smoothly.
When the processor is faster enough and the motherboard of your system has the capacity to take more RAM, then you can add high-capacity RAM module to your computer system. Toshiba Satellite L500 Series has the maximum capacity of 4 GB RAM. If the system has already 4 GB of RAM, then it cannot be updated. If it is lower than 4 GB, then it can be upgraded up to 4 GB. First unscrew the cover where the RAM is located, and replace the memory module with the higher capacity one. If there is any blank slot, just add a module there. You should remember that all types of memory modules will not be supported by the system. You have to insert the perfect memory module.
