Asus W7J Memory Upgrade limit?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello guys, I need some help with my laptop!!
It's W7J, T5500 model bought it a year go.
It's a great laptop except 1G of memory,, I use openSUSE no problem, but Vista,, too high memory usage all the time..
I really want to upgrade memory to at least 2G, however, my laptop says 1.5G is the maximum expandable.. Is there a way that I can upgrade it to 2G??
has anyone done it??

Uhm, okay I have a W7S and it came with 2x512mb, one is welded in, I went out and bought a 2gig stick and it works @ 2.5gb of RAM, I'd say its the same way for yours, it probably just says 1.5gig max because there were no single 2gigs at the time?
