get this to scan your laptop and it will tell you what you need and how much it will cost. Your laptop should take 8Gb i believe.

Probably, but it'll only run at 1066Mhz.

The ram he has got just now is DDR3 1066,2GB. That comes with the laptop.

Would he be able to change it for something quicker or is he stuck with it Secret-Squirrel. I know nothing about ram so leave it to you.

Hi Govanx

Raj said he wants to add 4GB and its maximum speed would be limited by the speed of the existing RAM module. If he were to remove the 2GB module and discard it then that may help but I doubt that his five-year old laptop is capable of supporting the faster RAM.

Having said all that, adding more RAM, of any speed, should significantly improve his laptop's performance.
