Set Bios Memory

Configuring computer RAM takes place in the BIOS settings.

Computer RAM, or random access memory, is a vital part to a computer's performance. The more RAM you have installed on your computer, the faster your computer will run. However, if you have a lot of RAM and do not have the RAM set up properly in the computer's BIOS settings, it will not make much of a difference. The computer's BIOS is a settings menu that you can access before your computer boots into the operating system. This allows you to change settings on the fly, including memory settings.


1. Shut down your laptop or desktop computer and turn it back on. When the manufacturer's logo flashes, press the key specified on the bottom of the screen to enter "BIOS Settings." The BIOS access key is usually either "F2" or "Del."

2. Use the arrow keys on the keyboard to scroll through the settings until you reach the "Advanced" section of the "BIOS" settings. You will notice the "Memory Settings" option is on this page.

3. Use the arrow key to select "Memory Frequency" and press the "Enter" key on the keyboard. You will be able to change the settings of the memory now.

4. Use the left and right arrow keys to scroll through the memory settings until you see the word "SPD" appear. This stands for "Serial Presence Detect" and will automatically configure your computer's memory settings to the fastest and most efficient frequency speed.

5. Press the "Enter" key again to save your selection of "SPD" and press the "Esc" key on the keyboard to save the BIOS settings. Press the "Enter" key once more and the computer will reboot with the new memory settings.
