hmm......What Should I do first?

First know which Brand of computer you have like; Acer, Toshiba, IBM, HP, Compaq.

Then you may want to look under your computer for a Manufactures PN part number.

Write down the Part number on a piece of paper.

Next, look for the Model number or Series on the front or bottom of your notebook computer.

Write down the Model number on a piece of paper.

Use the information you wrote to find the correct part for your computer memory upgrade.

Use the following Memory upgrade helper link to select the right memory for your upgrade.


[ Memory Upgrade Selector ] with estimated price.

Make sure to notice
how many memory slots your mainboard provides.

You'll also need to make sure your motherboard supports
the type of RAM you want to use, typically ddr2 and ddr3


Most new notebook motherboards can accept at least 4 GigaByte of memory and many accept 8GB or more

Check your systems operation manual guide, "that little book" that came with your computer. There should be a memory upgrade section which explains upgrading your systems memory.
Make attention to what is the correct memory module type is and what BRANDS may be certified and compatible before upgrading your system.

Always confirm which type of MEMORY BANK (also know as slots or sockets) your system has.

Also note the number of pins the memory module may have, so by doing this you can insure a perfect fit and compatibility.

Confirm which kind(s) of RAM your motherboard support:

These are *DIMM memory modules, a short name for (Dual in-Line Memory Module)

 

 

 

A Dual In Line Memory Module (DIMM) is a PCB that consists of a number of DRAM chips and is used to support a 64-bit or wider memory bus.
A 184-pin DIMM is usually found in desktop computers or servers.

 

 

The term memory module refers to a printed circuit board on which several memory chips are mounted. The memory chips are usually DRAM chips, but recent system designs use cache chips mounted on memory modules as well.  Memory modules are installed on the PC’s motherboard.  They are used to make up the initial assembly and are installed into dedicated sockets. The number of DRAM chips mounted on the module and the capacity of the memory module is determined by the system. The design of the module, which determines a systems maximum memory capacity, is also based on the systems architecture.

What does Notebook or Laptop memory look like? well... just have a look at this image below.

Small or Short Dual In Line Memory Module (SO-DIMM) is a PCB that consists of a number of DRAM chips and is used to support a 64-bit or wider memory bus.
A 144-pin DIMM is usually found in portable or laptop mobile computers.
