How can I play an 8GB RAM game in my 2GB RAM PC?

Hi! I want to know, how can I play my 8GB RAM PC games on my 2GB RAM PC.

The answer is by expanding the memory and adding more memory sticks to your free memory slots or by replacing memory sticks with the ones with a bigger size. If you still wish to play your game, which will have, most likely, a slideshow or just very choppy game play, then you will need to allocate virtual memory, preferably onto the SSD (but an HDD will do as well).

You have only one option here: checking how to replace the SODIMM memory or adding more sticks, if possible, to expand your memory to 8 GB or more. The memory sticks are inside your laptop and are replaceable. Find the number of slots and compatible memory type for the specific model on the Web site of the laptop manufacturer. You can find out which memory module you are using by installing and running CPU-Z. 4 GB is the minimum requirements at which the game will run, but it is preferable to install over 8 GB for a smoother game play. Please note that some laptops cannot be equipped with more than 2 GB of RAM; therefore, making them completely obsolete for playing games. So, to answer the original question: you cannot. Low-end system specifications for both WWE 2K15 and WWE 2K16 include the condition that the computer must be equipped with 4 GB or more to run the game.

How can I expand my 2GB RAM to support high-end games?

Maybe there's a software I can use or a program, please assist. I have tried: I am actually out of options

Most of the high-end games require a minimum of 4 GB RAM and even that is almost too little for the game's performance quality. Check out the YouTube video posted above for games that play on 2 GB of RAM. You can tweak your system to attempt to play the high-end games but it is a lot of effort for minimal results unless you have the option of installing more RAM into your PC.

There is not really a risk other than the game may just not play or glitch. The biggest thing to look out for is if you are overheating your computer while you play the game.

You need a minimum i5 processor for the best play. Before downloading a game, you should always check against the system requirements. Those are posted for a reason so that people do not get the game only to realize they can't play it. This YouTube Tutorial shows how to play with 4GB of RAM and an i3 processor. It can't hurt to try some of the recommended settings. You just may overheat, lag, or get a black screen during intense graphics.

Hello, my problem is that I want to play FIFA 09 at 1.50 RAM on computer?

You have three times the minimum requirement of RAM to play FIFA 09. Are you using an emulator because that might be causing the issue if it is not setup properly for this game? An older graphics and sound card could also cause glitches.

I don't want to overclock my GPU for doing these is there any way, will be a big help. It only tells how to play not to how to play it optimally. I have tried: I have tried all kind of memory boosters, running game at low specs, optimized my GPU setting for high performance, even tried other ways to get rid of 100% disk usage problem.

Are you running a disk mounted game or a download? Because you can't always trust an internet download of a game to be properly zipped etc. Is your graphics card stock and at least meeting the minimum requirements of the game? Have you removed all dust and debris from the PC housing? What Windows build are you using? Is it 32 or 64 bit? All of these are factors which you should consider in addition to what you have already done. If I knew what game you were trying to play, I may have been able to offer more insight but I have listed some extra checks for you not matter what game you want to play.
