I have a Toshiba A665-6095 with 4GB of RAM. They are DDR3. I want to add more but there are no available slots left. Should I remove the available RAM and install the new ones? I have never done this before but I know how. I'm just not sure if it's safe.

if you are not conformable doing it on your own then get someone else to do it for you. simple as that. also i would check the specs of your laptop just to make sure your laptop doesn't have its ram maxed out already

Ram is rather easy to replace, just push the clips on the sides outward and then lift the ram and remove it. Do the same in reverse to install new stuff.

Sometimes the 2 slots are above one another or beside on another. It if it is an Compaq R3000 the second slot is under the keyboard. ARGGG

Just make sure you get the same type and speed(so the board does not try to run faster without the needed voltage.) of memory. The sticks should also only fit one way.

Ok... So is it for me to eject the RAM available in the laptop and place in new ones? What will happen? I've done a little research too and this is what I found: http://www.crucial.com/upgrade/Toshiba-memory/Satellite...

Thats it. Ram does not hold any data when the computer is off, so you just power it off, pull the battery(hit the power switch to remove any power in the system capacitors).

How you can get to the replacing, remove the old sticks and insert the new stuff.

Replace the batter and plug it in.

Power up and make sure all the memory is detected. Keep the old ram in case you need it in the future.

For your laptop it looks like the memory is accessible from a door on the bottom of the laptop.
