so i'm a little bit confused here.
i have lots of experience building, upgrading, and interchanging parts in PC's. Been doing it for years.
Bought my first laptop the other day, Asus N53SV.
Come to find out that Asus recommends not upgrading?
This thing came with 6gb of ram. a 4gb and a 2gb.
First off, in order to run dual channel, the ram sticks have to match in size, correct?
second, it's upgradable to 16gb
yet asus will give me no information about the specs that i should be aware of for the ram purchase?
I want a SSD in here as well.
I was trying to ask asus if my video card in this notebook is exchangeable and i can't get an answer.
I purchased 4 4gb 1333 ddr3 ram sticks. 204 pin. Patriot memory
system freezes up and reboots. becomes highly unstable.
remove the ram, replace the original. works fine again.
does anybody have any experience upgrading or did i buy into a ****ty line of a machine and i should bail out and actually buy something else?
