Hi all,

Just recently have i been looking to upgrade my Compaq CQ56 laptop. After running crucial memory scanner I've found i can upgrade from 2GB of ram to 8GB quite easily. I was also considering upgrading to a 64GB SDD, but I don't know if my laptop has a spare Sata port. I'm probably guessing its quite rare, but i can only ask.

Also how can I transfer Windows 7 across onto the SDD, whilst leaving documents and other files on my current HDD?
