How do I upgrade my ram?
I have the surface 3 64gb version and was wondering if I would be able to upgrade the ram on it.
2 things: your surface 3 has 64GB of storage, not RAM. While it may seem like a rather nit-picky distinction, it is rather significant. Basically, RAM affects performance if you don't have enough, storage is how many files you can store (your C drive)
Regardless, the RAM on all surface models is soldered to the motherboard and not upgradable. Surface Pro models have removable SSDs that can be replaced to add more storage but you have to remove the display first, a difficult process that usually requires replacing the display completely. Surface (non-pro) models have their storage chips soldered to the motherboard, preventing replacement.
In a way, yes. At least if you are actually talking about storage space, not RAM.
If you did really mean to ask whether the RAM could be upgraded from the 2GB that your model has, the answer is a definitive "No."
For the storage space question: There is a MicroSD expansion slot under the kickstand. As I understand it, you could install a 64GB expansion card in that slot, thus massively increasing your maximum storage capacity.
You can learn more about adding an expansion card here.
While you’re Surface is unable to expand it’s memory use, it’s possible to expand your storage exponentially via the MicroSD card slot mentioned elsewhere. That being said, it is probably best to use that space to download web version apps as opposed to memory hogging software apps. You can find these in the Microsoft Store and for most others, you can find online or even create from the browser itself. I’ve seen media creation done using specific apps from the Adobe Creative Suite Online. Remember that your Surface (especially older ones) weren’t meant to be a laptop replacement. They were meant to be a Tablet upgrade living somewhere in between a high powered tablet device and low-power laptop.
