Memory Upgrades in Gateway® E series

What is the need of memory upgrade in Gateway E series?


Memory is a very important component in a computer. In fact after the processor, memory comes next in terms of importance and the memory of a computer determines the speed at which the system works. Like all other new generation computers, even your Gateway E series comes preloaded with lots of memory to handle all the requirements of modern day applications. However, complex and even more memory demanding applications are coming out every day, and to execute such applications, the memory in the Gateway E series might not be enough. The memory in your Lenovo ThinkCentre M90z Multi Touch All-in-One can be easily upgraded to a high configuration one. If Gateway E series users are experiencing blue screen issues while executing applications, system freeze, performance degrade of the system, application lag etc then the memory of the system must be upgraded. Increasing the memory would drastically improve the performance of your Gateway E series. With upgraded memory, there would be plenty of memory to allocate to different programs and this means that after up-gradation, users would even be able to install and multitask with very large applications. Upgrading the memory would not only enhance the performance of the system but it would also improve the performance of individual programs.


Following are some types of memory upgrades that can be performed in the Gateway E series system:




  • Memory speed

  • Storage memory

  • PIN type



Memory speed



Memory speed is the speed at which the memory communicates with the system. The memory speed in the system is counted in megahertz. If this number is more, then greater would be the speed and the performance of the system. You could increase the speed of the memory in your Gateway E series system through two different ways; by adjusting the settings in the BIOS and the second method is to simply upgrade the memory capacity of the system. You could increase the clock speed in the BIOS. The memory upgrade in the system means the up-gradation of RAM capacity in this system. The maximum memory capacity supported by this system is 4GB.



Storage memory



The storage memory in the system is mainly the hard drive capacity of the system. In this system, the hard drive comes with a capacity of 250GB and the user could increase this to the maximum capacity. To do this, the user needs to replace the hard drive in the system with a one with more capacity.



PIN type


PIN type is a number used to identify the RAM technology assigned to the system. 180 and 200 are the common pins available. To upgrade this, the user needs to replace the RAM modules. The memory modules suitable for this system are 256MB, 512MB, and 1GB. DDR3 is the technology used in all these types.
