How much RAM do I have?

    I am using AMD Athlon(tm) || x4 635 Processor 2.90GHZ and ram 2GB last 7 yrs I need to be increase the ram.

add a 4gb RAM to the extra slot, it will  become 6GB (5.75GB usable).

Yes it will become 6 GB but there are various limitations of using it under condition of operating system.

Example: DDR3 and DDR4 have a different ram slot. &  motherboard are  designed to use only one version of RAM’s .

If your Motherboard have ram slot DDR3 means you will add DDR3 + DDR3 and you have DDR4 Means DDR4 + DDR4 

you cannot mixed different types of version in same motherboard .it will affect the system. 

It will work in under one condition. the ram need to be same version. Example: If your motherboard have two ram slots for DDR3, you can add two DDR3 ram which may be of same size or different size. But remember you cannot add different versions of ram in one motherboard as the slot of a ram differences according to the version of the ram they were meant to use in a motherboard.

what type of operating system use installed?

If you are have  32 bit windows operating system, all of your RAM can't be used since 32 bit windows allow only 4gb (3.83 GB) of RAM. Also using two different capacity RAM will force the higher one to behave as the lower one and that wastes your extra gigs.

If you already have 2GB ram in your computer and add 4GB ram to extra slot .it will be 6 GB  but it take 3.83 Gb usable only.

if your system is running on 64 bit processor.

If your processor is 64 based but currently running  6 GB ram installed it show 6 GB (5.75 usable).

On Windows 10 computers, click on the Windows tab, and right-click on My Computer -> click properties.
