Can't Find 2nd ram to upgrade memory

\015 I purchased Acer extensa 4630-4900 for my daughter and want to get the ram up to 4 gb (2 gb right now). I just replaced the memory in my hp pavillion dv6000 without any problem... so easy. Now I've opened the Acer and can only find one 1gb ram stick? Where is the second one? how can I find it to upgrade the ram.\015

Answers :

Sometimes Laptops will have 1 slot internal and 1 slot on the bottom side thats readily accessible via a removable plate.

You'll be perfectly find with the 1GB internal and adding the 2GB to replace the 1GB stick on the bottom side.
Also Windows XP and VISTA 32bit can only address and use about 3.25GB of ram anyway.

Recently Microsoft released a patch that's kind of tricking consumers, People calling and complaining so much to MS and PC manufacturers about not seeing all their ram when they installed 4GB so they Released a fix that shows it as 4GB but still the 32bit OS cant use the extra over 3GB
Some laptops have the modules side by side, in the case of your laptop, if the SODIMM modules are not one on top of the other, then the likely scenario is that only one of the SODIMM modules is available. The one on the bottom of the laptop. The other SODIMM module would be on the inside of the actual laptop. Sometimes the module is fairly accessible (like right underneath the keyboard) or sometimes you actually have to remove a few components to be able to access it. According to the ACER website, only the one SODIMM module is accessible, on the underside of the laptop. You can look up the specs for your laptop here:
