Is it possible to up grade a asus eee fizz book


Yes it is possible to upgrade the ram and the harddrive, there will be little blanking plates on the back of the laptop, they are held in by small screws, undo the screws and you will have access to the memory and the harddrive. If you are unsure take it to a pc store and ask if they could find out what type of memory and harddrive is needed to upgrade. hope this helps.

Tosheiba Netbook NB205-N210 2 GIG, upgrade to Windows 7


I personally have not but if you are concerned how it will run, you should be fine, windows 7 is very efficent on resources.
  • 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
  • 1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
  • 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
  • DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver
    These are system specs so if you exceed these then your laptop will run great.

    Hope this helps

I have a vgn-b3vp (pcg-5b1m) sony laptop, can i upgrade the memory if it has 512 of none-removable memory and only 1 bank.


Yes, you can use the 1 bank and get higher graded memory, another 512 in the 1 bank would make 1gig, you can probable get as much as 2 gig in the bank to make a total of 2.5 gigs by buying a 2 gig memory stick.

Toshiba Satellite M115 model M115-S1061. Can I upgrade RAM to 2.0 gig or is it limited to 1.0 gig


You can go up to 3GB of ram with a 32-bit operating system. A 64-bit operating system is needed to use 4GB or more.

In your case, you should be able to, as long as you have the memory slots. If you're out of memory slots, you will have to purchase a stick with higher memory density.

Is my presario v5000 using my ram upgrade


where did the ram come from? did you buy it or pull it from another computer? its possible the chip is either defective or not for your computer depending on where you got it, its also not that much of an increase so you may not notice it i would suggest getting another 1g stick because yours should take 2g 1 in each slot.

Upgrade the Toshiba Libretto 50 CT


if you want to improve the speed of your laptop you could buy a faster harddrive with an higher rpm per minute than the one installed in the unit, that WILL speed up the system:), and yes its possible to boot from the 2gb flash card but i recommend if you are going to use a flash card you get a bigger one:)

Pp1020 harddrive


Hi doug160451,
Could you please post the specifications of your laptop, but if your laptop originally came with a 5 Gb Hard Drive then chances are it would be an old laptop and you would do better upgrading to a new laptop than go through the problems associated with upgrading only your hard drive. 
Cheers

Adding Memory To My Laptop


Ok I have the same exact model you do and I have also upgraded my memory, Use a pc2700~DDR 333~SO-DIMM RAM. I upgraded with a simple 512mb chip and it worked wonders, The motherboard can handle up to 2gbs but trust me its not neccesary. also the memory will go in at a 45 degree angle then once it is snug in you will push it down flat till it clicks, feels wierd doing it I know but thats how they are. Also the hard drive is very easy to change, but I would recommend you going with a "western digital 'passport' external usb HDD" I went with the 120 gig and its awesome. The backup software on the harddrive it came with is very worth keeping. Also not sure if you knew this already but that laptop has a 'SiSm760GX' Motherboard and it is supporting the AM2 processor class :) . read up on it here, http://www.sis.com/pressroom/pressrelease_000212.htm anyways hope that helped you and good luck. :)
