I ran crucial's diagnostic software and it says I only have 2GB of ram on my laptop. It says I can have up to 8GB of ram and that I have 1 free slot. So I will buy like another 2GB stick or maybe 4GB stick.
However it also says that the laptop supports dual channel memory. Do I really need to bother with that and buy a pair? It says that each memory slot can hold DDR3 PC3-8500, DDR3 PC3-10600 with a maximum of 4GB per slot.
However it also doesn't say if my current ram is 8500 or 10600… I'm guessing 10600 is faster. Is that correct?
I'm worried about mixing and matching the wrong ram.
