    The RAM appears to be maxed out. Exactly which machine do you have?

    Is there any chance that max ram memory can be increased in some way?

    See Here

    You would have to replace the 2Gb memory module with a 4Gb (4GB Single Channel DDR3L 1600MHz (4GBx1) module as your laptop only has one memory slot.

    Good Luck
