Question about Gateway MX7118 Notebook
My Gateway MX7118 locks up (pre-Windows) when I insert a new 1GB 200 pin SO-DIMM of PC2700 (it only has 512MB internal). This is the second SO-DIMM I've tried. I assumed the first one was bad after it caused the lock ups, but after the same scenario with a second stick... I'm thinking there's something else. I wanted to try exchanging my new 1GB SO-DIMM for the internal 512... but was unable to get the unit apart. I removed every screw, but when I tried to get it apart... the casing would not separate. I was loose all around the sides and front. but seemed to have something holding it together underneat the keyboard area. Any help would be appreciated...
it's not gonna work that way
honestly you cannot just add the dimm and you may not be able to replace it with the one you got either.I WOULD TAKE IT TO A PC REPAIR take your new dimm with you and they will install it for you or at least tell you if it can be done.
