Hi guys, hope you will answer this quick question of mine.

I'm on an ASUS Vivobook (model number X510UF) and I've been wanting to upgrade the RAM (it's 4GB currently). I saw this in task manager.;

  1. So what does 'Slots used' mean? Does it mean that my motherboard has 4 RAM slots and only one has been used to insert a 4GB RAM stick?
  2. And does that mean my laptop's RAM is upgradable? I need to fill the other three slots then?
  3. And finally, how do I select the best type of RAM for my device?
Thank you in advance.
 
  1. Slots used means how many sticks of ram you have.
  2. According to that micron (crucial) link, you can expand ram by adding 2 8gb stick or adding another identical 4gb stick.
  3. Either buy another identical stick or what micron (crucial) recommends.

01 - So does that mean my motherboard has 4 slots, but only one has been used?
