What the hell?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I opened up the cover in the back of my laptop to see the ram slot "s". I look and there is only 1 Slot with 512MB.

BIOS and cpuz tell me I have 1GB of ram (512Mb x2). Where the fork is the other slot of the 512MB that I can't see. Do laptops have onboard ram?.
I want to upgrade to 2GB x2, but if it only has 1 slot than I can upgrade to 2GB + the invisable 512MB which doesn't make no sence.

They do on large laptops (15.4" for example)... on smaller laptops, I guess they just can't fit enough mobo on the bottom.

I added 4GBs to my lappy and its easier than it looks. The cover above the keyboard pops off and the keyboard is held in by 2 phillips screws. The Memory was under a black plastic cover that lifts off. All in all I had both my sticks out and swapped in less than ten minutes.

cool

My laptop isn't like yours though .

This laptop is more for "Check out my suit, Im a big owner so I'll have A laptop with a crap gpu because I have no time to game or figure what game means"

that's not me, but I did get this laptop for free soo. . I have no desktop PC anymore because I sold it for 200 (Check my thread called "Am I crazy")
