    [READ]This could be in wrong area but i couldn't for the life of me find the right area.

    I have a Dell XPS 15, it's out of warranty of course, but i'm looking to upgrade it abit, and my problem is the Ram mounts that hold the ram into place, the top one is broken. Is there anyway you could replace that, without having the need to buy a new motherboard?

    Thanks guys.

    If you are not planning on moving the machine around in the back of your pickup truck, you can use the slot as is.

    Are you referring to the side clips that hold the module in place, or are you referring to the slot that the module is inserted into?

    The Dell XPS 15 laptop has 3 - 4 different models.
    Which one do you have?
    If you don't know for sure, advise what the 7-character "service tag" number on the sticker is.

    DIMM sockets can be replaced, but not easily. You'd need special equipment and experience.
