Memory Upgrades in Gateway® E4300

What are the different memory upgrades needed for the Gateway E4300 system?


Memory upgrade is the process of improving the memory in the system. Through this process, you could avoid the chance of replacing the entire system. The main function of memory upgrade in a system is to decrease the response time of the system. This means to decrease the time waiting for response from the system after giving a particular instruction. With the increase in memory on upgrading, newer hardware and software components would be compatible. An upgrade of memory could improve the speed at which the processor does data access and it significantly increases the speed of execution. But you need to check if your Gateway E4300 needs an upgrade or not. Given below are tips to check if a system needs a memory upgrade. You could think of a memory upgrade when your Gateway E4300 is running slowly without any other reason. It might take long to open an application or programs saved in the computer. This might happen when your system memory is almost eaten up by the programs and software saved in the computer. In such a case, you need to go for a system upgrade. If you want to install any additional software into your system, then also you need to upgrade the memory in the system.


Following are some of the memory upgrades that can be performed in the Gateway E4300 system:




  • Memory speed

  • Storage memory

  • PIN type



Memory speed



The time taken by the memory to communicate with the system is known as the memory speed in that system. This quantity in the system is normally counted in the mega hertz unit. The most common clock speeds in the RAM are 667 MHz, 533 MHz, 400MHz, and 333MHZ. If this number is more, more would be the speed and the performance of the system. You could increase the speed of the memory in your Gateway E4300 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 4 GB.



Storage memory



The hard drive is the main storage memory in each and every system. 160GB is the available hard disk space in this system. The up-gradation of this memory refers to the replacement of the lower memory hard drive with a high memory hard drive. The user could upgrade this to the maximum capacity of the system.



PIN type


PIN type is the type of pin assigned to the RAM in the system. The normal pins available are 184 and 200 types. To upgrade it, 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.
