Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Where is the memory module located. I found a chip that has a wire to it. its a gateway mx6421. Do I have to remove that to add memory below it?


Answers :

If you don't have your user's manual, I would recommend you download it from the gateway web site, for free, from its support page. You may need it for other reasons in the future, and it's the easiest and most expedient way to accomplish anything.
\015\012Failing that, you may need to open all covers on the underside of your laptop until you find one or two memory modules. The one you apparently found seems to be your modem, or wireless adaptor, since it has a wire leading from it to the motherboard.
\015\012Make sure the module you're adding is of the same type, speed, refresh rate, etc. The manufacturer may be different, but the type has to match, otherwise you may either have a non functioning laptop, or you may not be getting the benefit of double buffering (increased speed), especially if you're dealing with DDR or DDR2 memory modules.
\015\012One last bit of advice. Discharge any static electricity from your body by touching a large metallic object before handling the memory modules, since you may fry them.
\015\012Good luck.
