Hi, i have a Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo L7320G Laptop/Notebook and i was planning to upgrade to 3.5gb Ram, I ran crucials scanning software and it said the maximum my two ram slots can take is only 1gb each. Is there anyway i can buy something like another ram slot so that i can get more than 2gb ram or would i have to buy a whole new system??

Message from crucial.com:

Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-4200 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.*

Thanks, James

I would recommend that you go to the manufacturers website directly, to find out what ram upgrade you can acctually do. Iv'e found sites like Crucial and Kingston are great for telling you what "type" of ram you can have but not so good as to "how much". For example both of them state that my board will support upto "8gigs" of ram, where as i know and MSI site states i can only support upto "2gigs" of ram. So read into this what you will, but personally i would got direct to manufacturers spec site.

However, you cannot add another RAM slot, unless you are a total genius and expert at circuit boards, and have tools to modify them.

Or, in other words, no, you can't add another RAM slot.

Manufacturer : Fujitsu
Model : AMILO L7320G
Standard Memory : 256 MB (removable)
Number of sockets for upgrade : 2
Maximum amount of memory : 2.0 GB
Memory must be installed in set(s) of : 1
Bus Type : USB/PCMCIA
HardDisk Bustype : Ultra ATA/133
CPU : Intel Celeron M
Video Comments : 15.4 TFT WXGA
Model Comments : 400MHz FSB, VIA VN800 + VT8237R+ Chipset
Native OS : Windows XP Home

In this case, I'm pretty sure Crucial (or in the case of my data here, from PNY) is correct about this machine. Your limiting factors here are the maximum RAM available, the Celeron processor, and the fact that it has integrated video, which means its taking from the RAM to run the screen.

If there's any doubt about the maximum supported amount and the type of modules that the www.crucial.com site shows for a computer, 2 other good sites to use are www.kingston.com and www.memoryx.com (y)

----------------------------------------------------------------

According to what I've found, the Fujitsu Amilo L7320G laptop supports a maximum of 2048 MB(2 GB) of DDR2 PC2-4200 RAM, which equates to 1024 MB(1 GB) in each slot.
