    8 gb RAM vs an SSD for my HP Laptop 15


    I was recently gifted a low end HP Laptop 15. I am having major performance issues. After using for a short while, the system disk IO flatlines at 100% (as seen in Task Manager) and remains there for several minutes (or even tens of minutes). This problem is worst when any browser is open, even just s single tab.


    When this bottle neck is in progress, the system becomes unresponsive (so much so that I have to resort to rebooting the computer to get anywhere at all) or it just crashes altogether. I have run searches on the web for solutions to this problem, but the fixes are temporary at best.


    I'm contemplating memory and drive upgrades to help alleviate the problem. It currently has 4 gb memory and a 500 gb standard hard drive. I can add an additional 4 gb memory or an SSD. Initially, I can only afford one upgrade. Which of the two should I select first?

    :)

    I need advice to do this .

    HP Beats 15 Notebook : G6R14UA#ABA

    OS:Windows 10 Home
    CPU:64-bit OS, x64-based Processor : AMD A8-5545M APU
    with --Motherboard:BaseBoard Manufacturer Hewlett-Packard
    Memory:RAM - 8.00 GB .

    I want 16 gigs of ram for now .I have only 130 dollars at the moment. So maybe i can only get one stick for now .
    From watching videos, the ram is accessible with a little effort.

    But what kind of ram ? DDR3 8 gigs each ? Sodium ? Un-Buffered? How many teeth ?

    This is the first time shopping for ram upgrade for a laptop .
