Trying to identify the memory module on an Packard Bell EasyNote
We have an old Packard Bell EasyNote M5 262 Laptop. I have had the back off of the laptop with a view to upgrading the RAM, but looking at the PCB, I am unable to identify the current memory module in order to change out/replace the existing RAM

Sometimes, the specific brand and manufacturer of the media is an issue, not the DVD+R or DVD-R style.
A lot of the time, a firmware update to the DVD drive allows the DVD writer to work with a broader range of blank media.
Since this model is so old, Packard Bell does not offer firmware updates. If you can identify the manufacturer and model of the DVD drive in the laptop, you may be able to locate a third party firmware installer at places like www.rpc1.org.
If the laptop is more than two years old. Time to replace the battery. The power meter is not a reliable way of seeing a bad battery. If just one of the cells in the battery is bad it will not run your laptop , and the meter still would show 100%
