LOL, what kind of laptop? I'll bet the bank it's a Sony Vaio. OK, even if i'm wrong some manufacturers didn't put much thought process on ease of access on certain components. Your 2nd memory slot is probably either under the keyboard or under the palmrest either to the left or right of the touch pad area. That means you'll have to do a partial disassemble to get to it.

Second memory slot is under the keyboard. If you use link below and select 'user guide', then go to page 148 and it gives you detailed instructions on how to access the second memory.

I would appreciate feedback if this is useful. Thanks

Formatting card of Lumix DMC FZ72

The first thing I would try is ejecting the memery card and reinserting it hoping he will prompt for a reformat
If your computer has a slot to accommodate the memery card you can also use your computer to reformat
Memory card readers are quite cheap and plugged directly into your computer

Can you put 2 igb memery into the blue connectors and 2 512 gb into the black connectors

Yes, provided;

A) The Maximum Total Amount for the Ram Memory is at least 3GB.

B) The Maximum Amount for each Ram Memory slot is at least 1GB.

C) The first blue connector is ram memory Slot 1. (DIMM 1)

The Processor 'sees' the Ram Memory in Slot 1 first.
If there is a large amount of ram memory, (1GB), and a small amount (512MB), the large amount goes in Slot 1.

ALL ram memory must be the same 'speed', (Frequency Rate), or the slower ram memory 'speed' will be used.
If there is too much of a difference it may not work at all.

Ram memory needs to be 400MHz, or 533MHz, for your computer.
{DDR2 Sdram at 400MHz = PC2-3200
DDR2 Sdram at 533MHz = PC2-4200 (Also known as PC2-4300)

My DELL Workstation 670 says Memory configuration is invalid and system will halt. What is the solution. It is not detecting menory installed in 1st slot.

Maybe the memory is the wrong type or is too big (too many Mb for one slot).

Check your Motherboard specs or goto CRUCIAL.COM and run their SCAN MY COMPUTER program to see the max memery size for pc and for each slot.

Good luck and please post back with your results.

If this is a desktop - even if the modem is integrated on the motherboard, you can install and expansion card in one of the slots. Make sure you know what kind of slots are available on your board - such as whether or not you board has PCI slots.

Memory slot?

Your computer probably does not have one of those slots if you can't see it on the front of the computer. There are adapters you can buy that will hold the little camera memory cards. They plug into a USB slot. We have one that we use. I also use one that has 4 slots on it for several types of memory.
