Can I Add Ram To Speed Up My Dell Lattitude e6510 laptop


Your laptop is already fast based on its specifications. The Dell website shows incomplete specifications of the machine. Fortunately, some online stores have the information vital to determining the speed of the computer. After checking on its specifications, I don’t see a problem with regards to its speed. It runs on Intel Core i7 2.66 GHz processor with 4 GB DDR3 RAM.

For the graphics card, it ships with either NVIDIA NVS 3100M 512MB DDR3 or Intel HD graphics adapter. For additional information about your Dell Latitude E6510 laptop, visit Latitude E6510 Technical Specifications. Actually, your processor is the latest of the lineup of Core processors from Intel for this year 2015. The one you have is Core i7-620M which has 2 cores and 4 MB L3 cache and is codenamed as Arrandale.

It is actually a 64-bit processor which, I think, is the reason why you have 4 GB RAM. 4 GB is not properly utilized on 32-bit operating systems. With 32-bit Microsoft Windows, only 3.2 GB is used efficiently and if you have more than 3.2 GB the rest is wasted. If you want to improve the performance of your machine, you should check your operating system.

If you have 64-bit Microsoft Windows then there is no problem because it can use and extend the power of your processor. You only need to maintain the access speed of the files on your hard drive by making sure that it is not heavily fragmented. A too fragmented hard drive affects the speed of the computer regardless of how fast the processor is.

To maintain the fragmentation level on your hard drive, defrag your hard drive regularly. Even if you don’t install programs, the NTFS file system used by Microsoft Windows causes fragmentation each time you start your computer.
