You know that memory that allows you to open lots of applications at one time on a computer…the RAM? I swapped my second 256 chip for a 512 chip (not necessarily a smart purchase)…all by myself! I began to panic when I couldn’t get the chip in; took me 15 minutes of gently pushing to realize I had it in backwards. I didn’t break anything and it’s definately helped run the Adobe suite.
In addition to adding more RAM, I removed all the music from my hard drive…a bit scary. Now Adobe apps have more hard drive to pull from when doing hard work.
