How to increase the capacity of an old laptop


In today's digital age, computers have become a must. The need for powerful computers is also increasing.


At a time when daily work is done digitally, it is very important to have a smart computer. If there is a 32-bit operating system, only 4 GB of RAM can be kept at most.

Similarly, you can increase the capacity of your laptop by adding RAM according to the slot in the 64-bit operating system. Today we are discussing how to know how many bits of operating system your laptop has, whether there is a separate slot for RAM or not.


How to know the operating system bit of Windows laptop?


For this, first go to the system in the settings of the laptop.

Then go to About in Settings.

There you will find your 'System Information'.

Under 'Device Specification', 'System Type' shows how many bits of operating system your laptop supports. As an example, you can see in the picture below that the laptop we used supports a 64-bit operating system.


A laptop is not only 64 bit. Whether a separate slot is provided for RAM is also important. If a separate slot for RAM is not available, then you need to upgrade the RAM in your computer. In other words, if there is 4 GB of RAM, you have to put 8 GB of RAM in the same slot while upgrading. But the RAM cannot be increased to 8 GB by keeping another 4 GB separately.


How to know how many slots for RAM are in your laptop?


For this, first open the task manager by pressing Control, Shift and Esc (Ctrl + shift + Esc) button together on your laptop.

After opening Task Manager, go to Performance.



Click on Memory under Performance.


There you can find information about how many slots are in Slots used and how many have been used. Like here it is written 'one of two' (1 of 2). Which means that only one of the two slots has been used.


In this way, you can easily find out how many bits of operating system your computer has and how many RAM slots there are.

What does a 'food inspector' do?

What does a 'food inspector' do?  Those who studied food technology, who like the food of different restaurants? They check the quality of what kind of meat the meat shop is selling, whether the vegetables of the vegetable shop are pesticide-free. I would like to make a proposal regarding the hiring of this type of food inspector contract.

What does quantum physics tell us about reality? | Why is quantum physics so hard?

What does quantum physics tell us about reality? Quantum physics provides us with a new understanding of reality that is different from our classical understanding. In classical physics, things have definite properties, like position and velocity, and the physical world is objective and exists independently of our observations.

Sophistication of Metaverse Avatars | Motion Tracking

 Sophistication of Metaverse Avatars The term "metaverse" refers to a collective virtual shared space, typically containing many individual virtual worlds. Within the metaverse, users can interact with each other and with digital content through the use of avatars, which are virtual representations of the user's identity. The sophistication of these avatars can vary depending on the capabilities of the platform and the level of detail and customization that is possible.
