View Full Version : Installing RAM on a G51JX-X3

12-23-2011, 04:48 PM
I currently have the pre-installed 4 GB RAM on a G51JX-X3 (Description: http://www.amazon.com/Republic-Gamers-G51JX-X3-15-6-Inch-Gaming/dp/B00361G0ZO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1324673849&sr=8-1)

I was wondering if there is a tutorial in this forum that could show me how to install RAM? I know the basic gist of installing RAM on a laptop, but not for the G51 specifically. If there is such a tutorial, ideally with pictures or video, that would be great. To start, I'm not even sure which bottom panel to remove.

Also, exactly what type/brand of RAM would i need for this particular notebook? Again, I have the current pre-installed 4 GB and would like to upgrade to 8 GB.

You might need to check what speed the current stick is. DDR3-1066 and DDR3-1333 4GB sticks are rather cheap lately (around $20).

It's DDR3-1066. Apparently, there are two SODIMM sockets available. However, since I have not actually opened up the notebook, I'm not sure it it currently has 2x 2GB or 1x 4GB. I hope it has 1x 4GB so that I can just add another 4GB into the empty slot. Otherwise, I'll need to be 2 sticks.
