Turn on, yippee 8GB of RAM installed, what makes me laugh though was when I had 4GB I had a score of 4.4 because of the desktop graphics, everything else was high up in the 5 score. Now I have 8GB the memory has gone up to 7.9 the others are still 5+ but the graphics are now down to 4

I'm happy though that I managed to do it myself and not have to get my son-in-law to do it, he's the tech.
I found out the same thing installing mine.
If the laptop RAM was any tighter in the slots you would need a hammer to install.

That's true Mike, thing is it was easy after I made sure it was pushed right up at the top. I was pleased though I had a set of those jewellery screwdrivers or I wouldn't have been able to do it, my collection of household ones wouldn't have fit.

I told you . . . anyone who can cross-stitch like you would be able to installl the RAM! Well done!!
Thanks, although I don't think the two have that much in common, apart from being nimble with my fingers.
I'll agree with what someone said that I would feel very proud of doing it, mind I think it's probably the easiest upgrade you can do so that's OK.

Congrats Joan on getting the new RAM installed! I am impressed! None of my sisters would even attempt to do something like that.
