Old laptop looks like it has TWO places to fit RAM?

  buel 22:19 17 Oct 2014

Hi, I know this sounds odd but please bear in mind that I know next to nothing: I am trying to help speed up a friend's laptop. I have got rid of various viruses, malware, etc but I looked to add some RAM and seen, what looks like to me, two places to add RAM? Please see here, it looks like Desktop RAM: click here, it looks like I can add laptop RAM but there seems to be a wire stuck with heatsink paste? click here can I ask what these are?

Here Please

What is the make and model number of the laptop?

Bin it if not happy with the performance.

It's an Advent 7062. Running XP. Currently has 768 mb of RAM.

No, you misunderstand, the improvement is substantial....I just would like to add RAM but I am curious as to whether it does have two places for two different sizes of RAM. So, from the images, does it?

Thank you.

However, I still dont understand why it seems to take Desktop modules and provide space for smaller laptop modules?

If the ram modules are sill available (most likely expensive if you can find them) have a look here .

PC3200 DDR SDRAM; max 2 GIG.

Singing words of wisdom.... let it go.

Can't believe the link to crucial still works on that old site. Wonderful.

But I can't let it go....it's not mine to let go....! Oh I believe in...the Advent. :)

The Advent is no more...
