Re: How old is your computer? Is it a laptop?

Bottom line the OP needs a new computer/motherboard and is wiser now about checking the max RAM for the new one he buys. At one time the laptops from HP and Lenovo had double the RAM capacity of anything from Dell but people would blindly go with Dell and there was nothing they could do but buy a new computer at a much sooner date.

With a desktop computer one can add a second drive for a scratch drive and this frees up memory that would otherwise be used by Photoshop. This also cuts down the fragmentation of the primary drive (a big problem with Adobe PS that creates so many temp files during processing) which helps performance and increases the SSD longevity.
