    Is there a difference between laptop memory sticks and desktop memory


    I have a Dell Workstation with two 8GB Kingston memory sticks and want to increase my memory to at least 64GB. Is there a difference in laptop and desktop memory sticks (physical size, etc.)? Also, where are sites where I can look to find what I need? I've never purchased components on the internet before. Thank you.

    :)

  3. Windows 10 Problem with usb port and old memory stick

    Hello Steve,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    We regret the inconvenience caused to you. We will be glad to assist you with your issue.

    • Does the issue occur when u try with different USB drive?
    • Did you install all the pending Windows update?

    I suggest you to first try and check with different USB Memory stick and check if the same issue occurs. Also try using your current USB memory stick in different USB port and check. Also install all the pending Windows
    updates and check. You can also try using the Memory stick on another system and check if its working fine.

    For now, you can try updating the drivers of the Memory Stick and check if it helps:

    Follow the steps to update drivers from the Device Manager:

    1. Right click on
    Start button, select Device Manager andEnter.

    2. Find the drivers which needs to be installed and also see if there are any warning symbols. If yes update the drivers.

    3. Right click on the Memory stich device and click on
    Update driver.

    Let us know the status of the issue. We will be glad to assist you further.

    Thank you.

    In order to assist you in a better way please answer the below questions.

    - What happens when you connect memory stick to your PC?

    attached to your computer was installed correctly.

    Follow the steps given below:


    • Type Troubleshooting in the search box and press Enter key.
