    The time has come to upgrade my measly 512MB laptop into a 2GB beast of a machine, I was about to place an order for 2GBs (2x1GB) of Super Talent. I just thought I would open up the memory slot to check on the existing RAM... and it's not there? :confused: - instead there is 1 empty slot.

    Where and how do I get to the other 512MB of existing memory?

    The computer stated it was upgradeable to 4GB so obviously I must be able to replace the 512 somehow, but how?

    The second RAM stick is under the keyboard.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Wow I feel right zoolander right now... it's 'under' the keyboard? I see the screws on the reverse side, do I unscrew those and it just pops off?
