If I secretly remove 2 sticks of 4GB RAM from my brothers PC...

Will he notice? Will the computer prompt him upon boot that ram has been removed at all?
#2CatToyPosted 2/25/2014 6:41:54 PM
Yeah, it will say "Your deadbeat brother is stealing from you".

No but he would notice when he starts running out of ram when using a program that will use more then the amount he had before. Doing this also makes you a jerk for stealing from your brother tho.

Yes. First thing that'll happen upon boot is that a window will pop up informing him that there were hardware changes, and exactly what they were.

He's sitting on 16 gigs spread out on 4 sticks. It used to be my PC, but I gave it to him since I planned on re-building one from scratch. Now I'm really missing that PC and would like to cut costs as much as possible. Yes I'm a jerk, but I'm ok with that. the PC I gave him cost me 2 grand, so I don;t feel terrible about it.

Its not a secret if you tell the internet.
#9PsythikPosted 2/25/2014 6:47:28 PM(edited)
In that case do whatever the f*** you want. 16GB is overkill. Just tell him what's up and unless he's an a**hole he'll be cool with it.

It helps when you don't withhold information. I would just explain the situation to him. I doubt he would need 16gigs of ram if he didn't build that himself.
