samsung motherboard help needed

hi i have a samsung np300e5a-a0uk laptop I3 2350M. i noticed in cpu-id that it says there is 4 dimm banks yet when i open the bottom i only have 2. according to the cpu-id it says it sees memory in bank 1 and 3, nothing in bank 2 and 4.

the motherboard it says is samsung 300E4A/300E5A/300E7A/3430EA/3530EA in cpu-id

does this laptop have hidden memory banks that samsung doesnt like consumers to know about and if so where are they to add memory? thanks for any help

    According to the official SAMSUNG specs your laptop supports upto 8GB with 2 slots. Maximum per slot being 4GB. So I don't think there is another two slots which are hidden. Even the manual states there are only two slots for your laptop.

    Usually, the hidden slots will be under the keyboard. So you can try it, but not recommended. I assume you are looking for compatible memory, if you are try the following link (click on the 1333MHz) -
    Compatible 4GB (1333MHz) memory for your laptop.

    Cheers, mate!!
