Normally there is a panel to access the RAM on the underside that has a screw in it. Remove that screw and you should see if you have a slot free

yeah go to http://www.sisoftware.co.uk/index.ht...64&langx=en&a= to download SiSoftware Sandra, that'll tell you pretty much anything you want to know about your computer, including how much RAM you have, can take, what type and what speed. Now you need to buy a module that is all of these things (the size must be below the figure it tells you your computer will take max) and in laptop size, please, please, check this with someone else, cos im not sure, did all that from memory and i've never upgraded memory
