    Don't take anything WEI gives you as serious information. WEI is a joke and is not anything near a benchmark nor does it hold any type of bearing as to actual performance.

    Can anyone post pictures of the bottom of the case coming off, showing where the ram is placed?

    My son has a Emachine D620 laptop, with 2gb ram, and it seems to be a great laptop for the price. Very impressed. We would like to increase the ram - since that is such a cheap upgrade. So to verify - ONLY 800mhz SO-DIMMs work - Right?

    Thanks in advance.

    Toaster, how much are you going to upgrade to? When you upgrade let me know you see a difference between 2gb from 3gb or 4gb. Thanks

    We had intentions of upgrading to 4gb if possible... When we do the upgrade, I'll post our results. (*NOTE: Not sure when we will do the upgrade)

    Besides doing a BIOS update, I would say some brands don't always jive with certain motherboards. I am using Corsair Value Ram, but they aren't always from the same batch (i.e. my value ram could be better or worse than what you would get now, it a supply and demand thing). I also have an Acer 4420-5239 whcih I installed Kingston PC2-5300 Ram and it aslo sees 4GB. The chipsets between the two board are somewhat similar, so its most likley related to the bios. I also upgraded my OS from Vista Basic to Vista Premium.

    I got the 4gb to work, I had bought PNY ram which didnt' work. So I switched to Kingston Ram and it was able to pick up 4gb.

    Now I'm trying to decide if the labtop uses all 4gb, I think the max the labtop will read is 2gb.

    What do u guys think?

    go to run and type in dxdiag. that will tell you how much ram the computer has access to.

    Has anyone tried this? i was about to buy 2gb 800 mhz ram off new egg for my d620 5777 when i stumbled up on this site. this new ram will raise the total ram to 3gb and i want to make sure that it will work fine, BEcause if it will thats awesome, but if it won't then thats wasted money.

    Cheers!

    More Ram is never a waste of money, especially going from 1 to 3

    cheers ...
