Can I really upgrade to 4gb of RAM?

I have an Acer Aspire One 722 BZ825 netbook. AMD C-50 processor. 2gb DDR3 10600. 250hdd. radeon 6250 graphics.

Now when I bought this about a year ago, it said it was expandable to 4gb of ram (it also came with 64bit Windows Premium installed).
I finally decide that now is a good time to upgrade my memory since prices have gone down.

So I popped the backplate off the netbook and see that there is one memory module of 2gb in its socket. And directly under it is a another slot for a 2nd module, however, there is no bracket or insert. The contacts are soldered over, maybe because they limited this model of netbook?

Anyways, do you think the netbook will accept a single 4gb ddr3 10600 module? My guess is yes, I just wanted to see what others think.

You could see if there is any 4 GB memory on Amazon. you would have to make sure you match the right ddr you want to buy with the one that will work with your netbook

Check with the manual/manufacturers. Some have arbitrary limitations in their BIOS or PCB that could cause compatibility problems.
