laptop help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
i was going to ask about upgrading RAM on this laptop, which i am using right now. its a tabletPC which owns, but the screen swivels making it a laptop too. its old averatec c3500, dad gave it to me for graduation. it was his.

questions:

where in general is the ram located in a laptop? i cant find the ram altough i found cpu and hdd

for teh averatec c3500 its ddr 333 512mb, can i plug in another 512MB sodimm if theres a slot? like this stuff http://cgi.ebay.com/SODIMM-512MB-DDR...QQcmdZViewItem

it has an AMD Athlon XP-M 2200+. can i just take out this CPU (i know where it is) and put in a faster XP-M? of teh same socket of course. wihch leads me to this question
kk i have this in my sights, will i need anew 1U/laptop cpu cooler for this faster cpu:

also will upgrading the CPU be ok with power and stiff. if it takes more W then will it be ok? just faster battery depletion right?

can someone find a nice 9cell battery for this?

nvm i guess i cant replace GFX. o well, it plays Doom 3! barely lol but still

thx all

As I posted in the other thread, look at the C3500 User Guide for help.
