It comes with 6gb of DDR3 ram so I purchased 2x 4gb sticks of G.Skill RAM. I know the laptop has 2 open slots for more RAM, but I've only been able to find one underneath the keyboard. When I add the stick of RAM and turn on the laptop to check if it has been added the screen doesn't turn on and the keyboard doesn't light up. However, when I take it out the laptop returns to normal.
Am I doing something wrong? Anyone know where the other slot is? Here are the links to the RAM and laptop I purchased. Hopefully the latency of the ram isn't screwing it up or something.
I just checked on a couple of memory suppliers sites and the laptop should have 4 slots in total. If you can only fine one empty slot then this would mean the previous RAM confirguration of 3 x 2gb sticks.
The only reasons I can see for the new ram not to work is either a faulty module or the laptop is not fully compatible with the brand you have chosen.
I have also checked the ASUS site and they have two models listed on there page - both show the memory configuration as 8 gb (4 x 2gb)....
Ugh. great. So now I have to buy 2 more sticks of RAM and find out where the stock ones are on this sucker.
You dont have to buy new ram, just take out all your old ones and replace them with your new ones. The current two modules you have stock are running in dual channel mode. Take them out and put in your new ones. Done
