    According to its service manual, the Dell Latitude D630 laptop supports a maximum of 4 GB of DDR2 PC2-5300(667 MHz) RAM.

    It also says it's "8 GB capable", but I'm not sure how that would be accomplished.

    That's an old laptop and usually comes with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor with a speed of 1.80 GHz or less and with 1 - 2 GB of RAM.

    It has one user-friendly RAM bay on the bottom of the case. The second RAM bay is underneath the keyboard and is tricky to remove.

    Answer Wayne's questions so we can respond to your question.

    There's also no point trying to run with 8GB of memory as you are running 32bit Windows which can only address up to 3.5gb of memory. I suspect the laptop won't run with 8gb but if it did you would have to upgrade to 64bit Windows which wouldn't be economically viable.

    I'm guessing he wants to run Windows 7 64-bit in it and try to use more than 4 GB of RAM.
