Hi I was wondering if anyone knows what is the maximum ram this laptop will take. I have a total of 320 at the moment and it is very slow. This is only the spare laptop I have but my husband would like to take it over but i think he will be tearing his hair out with it!! Can it take anymore? Cheers for any help!
After I posted I thought to go on he crucial site, and I asked it to scan to see if the ram could be upgraded, they told me that I already have the maximum in which is 310, but you say i can have 576, so who is right please?
The general consensus is 576mb ( 64 on board , 512 in remaining socket ) but I wonder whether the processor and bus speed might make a difference as it ranged from a PII 366 to a PIII 850 and a bus of 100 to 133 mhz , if it does I would think that the higher end ones would have a greater memory capacity .
If you have two slots and both used then Crucial indicates you have the max. It will not tell you what you can achieve by replacing existing ram with larger sizes. I would think Technotiger is correct. Why not e-mail Crucial asto fitting larger memories and what they suggest.
click here for a helpful .pdf file showing full breakdown of the M700 , and how to get to the two memory slots , it also confirms that 2x256 can be fitted to make a maximum or either 544 ( 32 onboard ) or 576 ( 64 onboard ) so there is the definitive answer !!
