Hello all I bought some RAM to upgrade an E-Systems notebook. I ran a couple of programs (belarc and SiW) and they both said that there were 2 ram slots and one was empty. Now that i have the RAM i unscrew a small cover on the back of this computer to access the RAM and it only has one RAM slot. As i have never opened up a laptop before i thought i would put this post up and find out if im missing something? Is it likely that there could be another RAM slot hidden away somewhere? Could these programs be mistaken? Or am i missing the obvious? Thanks for any advise.
All i know about this system is it is made by E-Systems The programs i mentioned in my original post only tell me this about the motherboard - DIXONSXP It has a genuine intel T1500 cpu that runs at 1.86GHz and 1GB of RAM already installed. I was hoping to add another 1GB stick as these programs reported 2 RAM slots, one with 1GB and another RAM slot that is empty but as i said i can not find the empty slot.
I have a Medion re-badged Mitac Laptop. one slot is under the plastic this as memory in it when I got the Laptop. under the plate was the empty slot for Ram. The Software you are using accesses the Motherboard Hardware, second slot may not have been fitted to the board though it will take one. so software will show it as having two or more slots
Thanks for all your comments and advise. Sorry for lack of details in original post. This is an E-System 1412. I removed the keyboard but could only see a metal plate and i couldn't find any screws or any way of removing it. I removed the lower casing and could see almost the whole of the board but still nothing. I'm thinking woodchip may be on the right lines with this one.
