Question: What can I do if the bays located underneath my laptop do not contain the memory modules?

Read our answer below:

You may have a laptop that has its memory installed from under its keyboard. Look around its sides with the laptop sitting on your desk (screen towards you if opened), you should see a screw(s) that will release the keyboard so it can be lifted out of the way. Some laptops need unscrewing from the bottom to release the keyboard. It's best to consult your laptop's user manual should you be unsure.


The other side to this question is you may have a laptop that has all its memory already soldered onto its motherboard hence does not support upgrading its memory. This is true for select types of laptops such as sub-notebooks or netbooks. The easiest means to checking whether this could be the case is to use method 1, method 2 or method 3 in part 5 of the Laptop Memory Uprades Guide. This will provide you with information not only regarding how much memory your laptop supports but also the number of slots it has, and whether it can be upgraded.
