What kind of RAM do I need? Tags: Laptops DDR3 RAM DIMM Last response: May 6, 2012 2:25 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share sambone May 6, 2012 2:15:02 PM I have a laptop with 4GB RAM that I can upgrade with 4GB more (one slot). I am a hrdware novice and I don't know what specific kind of RAM I need. My current memory is listed only as "4GB DDR3 SDRAM (1 DIMM)". I can find 4GB RAM sticks at NewEgg and other places listed as "204 Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM". Is this the same thing? Also, there are different speeds available listed as 1066 (PC3 8500), 1333 (PC 10600), 1333 (PC3 10666), etc. I haven't been able to get any help from either HP or the vendor I purchesed from. So how do I know what kind I need exactly? More about : kind ram WR2 a c 572 D Laptop May 6, 2012 2:19:55 PM Hello sambone; First you want to find out what RAM you have installed.
