Answers :

Hi there. On laptops, the memory slots are normally on top of each other. Though the bottom one would stick out a bit more. When you look at your memory stick, you will see a bit of plastic on each side that holds the stick in place, just look for the other bits. You may need to take the current stick out to see properly.

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Ram upgrades I am upgrading 2 e-machines computers with Ram. My question is what order to fill the slots with memory. The first machine is a T4200 which has 3 slots in it and holds a 1.5 gb max. I am adding 2 sticks of 512 mb each to the factory installed 256 mb. Assuming the current stick is in slot 1, do I now put in a 512 each in slots 1 & 2, then place the 256 in slot 3? The second machine is a T3624 with 2 slots and a 2 gb max. I am replacing the current 256mb stick with one each at 1gb & 5
