How to Upgrade Your Computer's Memory [Tutorial]

Is your computer starting to lose its zip? If your system seems to be running slower than normal, you may need to upgrade your computer memory.

Mark Relf, Rasmussen College School of Technology state program coordinator, will walk you through this process and show you how to upgrade your computer’s memory if needed.
