Adding RAM
« on: April 07, 2007, 02:50:18 PM »
I got a toshiba notebook which I stupidly got with only 256 MB.  The nearest service center will charge $175 to upgrade to 1 GB.  Is it worth it to add it myself?  Is it hard to do?  Do you guys do it yourselves?  My warrenty is about to run out so I can open this baby up soon without voiding it.

I've never done anything RAM-wise to a notebook, but everything I read says it's a piece of cake.  BUT - is that $175 including the cost of the RAM?  If so, let them do it as you can't get a gig of RAM for less than a hundred bucks from a reputable dealer like Crucial.

It is very easy.  Look on the bottom of your laptop.  There will be a small door that should be somehow labeled with a "M" or it could not be labeled at all.  You can pick up a gig for anywhere from $60-75 at newegg.com.  It'll take you 30 seconds to change out.

Thanks fellas.  If you have architectural or building questions, let me return the favor.
