A web designer installed the latest video editing software and now notices that when the application loads, it responds slowly. Also the hard disk LED is constantly flashing when the application is in use. What is a solution to solve the performance problem?

  • adding more RAM
  • upgrading to a faster CPU
  • replacing the video card with a model that has a DVI output
  • replacing the hard disk with a faster model
    Explanation:

    RAM problems are often caused by faulty RAM modules, loosely seated modules, an inadequate amount of RAM, and compatibility issues. When there is not enough RAM in the computer, data needs to be swapped often between the RAM and the hard disk (indicated by hard disk LED constantly flashing), which significantly slows down data access speeds.
