I guess i could try giving them a call.
Not sure if their open on the weekends though.


But if i do get the RAM do i just unscrew the thing on the bottom of the computer and plug it in there?

NoGoodNamesLeft, yes. Just make sure the computer is turned of, unplugged, the battery is removed, and to touch something metal (not painted) to avoid applying any electric shock to the RAM stick. This would potentially damage it.

Bob, I'm looking into it.

Here is the link to the RAM you need. Since it's from Toshiba, you are guaranteed not to void any warranty by installing it too.

Kingston 2GB PC3-8500 1066MHz DDR3 Notebook Memory Modul
