    On older laptops you may not be able to increase system RAM at all, mainly due to cost. Newer laptops have memory compartments assessable from underneath the laptop. It is easy to increase memory in these, if you are mechanically inclined

    Yes Tomrca,
    all you need is a small flat or philips screwdriver. The SODIMMS clip or snap in place

    That's the procedure HSC. There's no need to disassemble the laptop

    read the installing ram and troubleshooting guide in the guides forum.

    Adding RAM to a laptop is especially beneficial as it also increases battery hour life.
