    Simply follow the steps:

    Step 1) Insert USB drive in PC.


    Step 2) Open “My Computer” then right-click on USB drive and select “Properties”.

    Step 3) Now click on the “ReadyBoost” tab and Select the option “Use this device”.

    Step 4) In ”Space to reserve for system speed”, select the amount of memory that you wants to use for pen drive.

    Note: Prefer Default value recommended by Windows.Don’t change it

    Step 7) Now Click on OK to save and exit.

    And Restart your computer..

    Remember It does not show your RAM increased but actually it performs faster . [​IMG]

    By Readyboost feature you will get partial improvement won't be as good as a Ram
    **********
    No any how pendrives are cheap ........................ sometimes it does brick like you will see (4gb pendrive reduce to just 128mb)....... i was going crazy used some HP Format Tool to get it back to 4g
