Dell Inspiron 5482 RAM upgrade, SLOW RESPONSE

Hi,

 

My new one day old DELL INSPIRION 5482 laptop with 4GB RAM configuration is extremely slow and unresponsive with minimal browser operations. Laptop freezes occasionally and difficult to use more than half an hour. I think it is because of 4GB RAM which is less to serve any computing applications with Windows 10. 

I would like to know that if I upgrade to 8GB RAM will it be of any help in terms of performance improvement? Which RAM module will be compatible with DELL INSPIRON 5482 model?

 

Please help me out from this frustrating computing experience!!!

It's unlikely that your laptop is running slow and unresponsive because it has only 4GB RAM.

My Inspiron 1545 only has 3GB RAM, but Windows 10 runs fast on it.

Does your laptop have an SSD drive?

Did the laptop come pre-installed with any bloatware?

You too could benefit system improvement from Dual-Channel memory with an upgrade to 4GB or 8GB.

As far as updating the HDD/SSD that's another question and should be another post.

We would need to know M.2 SSD, 2.5" SSD, Intel Optane replace with SSD etc.???

For now  8GB memory "2x4GB Matching Pairs" would be an easy upgrade.
