View Full Version : Newbie Memory Upgrade Questions

12-26-2012, 12:10 AM
This is my first post in any sort of computer forum, but I think I'm doing this right.

I currently own a G74SX-XA1 with a 750GB hard drive and 3 x 4 GB of RAM.

Is there anything I need to know if I want to upgrade either? I want to upgrade my hard drive mainly due to a SMART (?) error and the end of the warranty. I was thinking of getting a SSD for the OS and a 750GB for everything else. It seems to be just "plug and play" but I don't want to mess up my whole system.

While I'm doing upgrades, I was also thinking of filling in the last RAM slot. Once again, what do I need to know before I attempt this.

Please use AI recover utility or 3th party recover utility to revocer OS to your new HDD, if you want to upgrade your RAM, please saw the spec table on ASUS website.
