so i've given up on repairing the current laptop i think. it's just too old and nothing short of gutting it would fix that. therefore i am looking for a new one, and i found one, the price is right and everything. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...2E16834234476R
but there's on problem, i don't like that there's only 8gb of ram there. how much of a pain do you think doubling that ram would be?
Not a big deal usually but I cannot seem to find the complete answer. There is a tab on the underside that you can remove that allows access to one ram slot and the hard drive however I cannot seem to read where the second ram slot is so it is also possible that some ram is welded to the board and not changeable or it is under the keyboard which could also be a nightmare requiring a lot of work on a plastic frame case.. It sounds like the slot you can touch has one 4 Gb stick in it which would mean 12Gb might be the most that is easy to reach. The other thing I read which affects going inside the actual laptop is it is entirely plastic so one wrong move breaks something that is not fixable possibly. Knowing how poor Asus tech support is for their laptops I have been advising my clients to steer clear of them recently and this unit has all the earmarks of an overpriced laptop that offers little easy upgrade I can see. On the otherhand most of what I have just said makes consumer division laptops mostly poor buys lately and personally if I were you I would look more into HP Biz division laptops such as EliteBook or ProBook or Lenovo Thinkpads, also Biz division that again gives you way more flexibility to upgrade.

"Not a big deal usually but I cannot seem to find the complete answer.

Here are a few and please bear in mind there really is no such thing as a gaming laptop despite the existence of a so called category since laptops really aren't intended for that though there are many that can actually work for most games[/url]
I am aware of this technicality. also i will look upon these later. and get back to you.

New RAM keeps crashing my laptop. Hi everyone. I decided a while ago that I needed to upgrade my laptop so I went and bought some RAM. My laptop (HP Pavilion zv5000 running XP) was running on a pathetic 256Mb until today when I installed the new 1Gb RAM and, at first, it ran so smoothly, everything was better but every half an hour...
