The F501A has one RAM slot- located on the underside of the motherboard. It's a tricky thing to reach, but doable if you have patience. Turn the laptop bottom-up. Remove the battery. Remove the 11 screws from the back cover. The two nearest the hinge are longer than the other 9. They're tiny so put them into a cup as you work. Turn laptop over & grab the top cover in the area of either hinge & gently lift. Use a plastic credit card or plastic flat tool to slide around the edge as you gently pull upwards. There are little clips holding the cover down & they are freed as you push/slide the tool. Once the top cover is free, carefully lift towards you & un-clip the two ribbon cables which are holding it to the motherboard.

Now, in order to reach the underside RAM slot, you must un-clip the cable near the top right (the VGA screen), disconnect the fan, & remove any screws you see that are holding the motherboard down. Then, while supporting the fan, carefully lift the motherboard from the left side, up & towards the right (standing it up on it's right edge)- you may even want to tip the laptop onto it's side as you go.

From here, you'll now have access to the RAM slot. Only reassemble the fan & a couple of screws, then the VGA cable & keyboard cables & test that the RAM is recognized in the BIOS. You can press the tiny power button by reaching under the spot where it normally rests (so you don't have to reattach the entire keyboard/cover right away). Once you see the RAM is detected, then you can fully reassemble.

If you'd like a reminder- just take photos as you go.

Lastly, the maximum RAM is 8GB.

Yes, your mainboard supports up to 2GB of DDR memory. That does not change if you add a graphic card. Windows XP 32 bit can actually address up to 4 GB of total memory including CD, hard drives, and video cache.
Note: Your mainboard only supports up to 2 GB, but newer boards can support much more memory, up to 16GB of RAM.
If you could install 4 GB of RAM in your machine, it would still work, but windows would only address as much RAM as it can use; the rest would go unused, so it would probably show up as 3.5 GB of RAM then.

Does ASUS P5GC-MX/1333 Motherboard supports DDR2 800mhz ram.?i'am havin 1gb ddr2 667mhz ram and i want to add 2gb 800mhz ram to it


Hello Tarun - No it doesn't. It would run OK but you would not gain any performance as the ram will only run at the same 667 MHz.

The limitation of RAM speed is dictated by the specs of the Intel 945 Chipset the motherboard is based on. But certainly add more ram, especially if your running Windows Vista or Windows 7 which both need at least two GB of RAM to perform well.

Happy upgrading and thanks for using Fix Ya.

Hi, my Asus a8m has 512 mb of ram. I'm considering buying a macbook, but wondering if it would be worth upgrading to 1 or 2 mb of ram and having a professional 'clean out' my asus. Would it be worth it?...


max supported memory is 2GB (2x1GB sticks replacing your current memory). Yes, it'd be worth it to add more memory of you were keeping the machine, otherwise restore it to original configuration and sell it "as is". Don't get a professional, just used your ASUSes restore option to set it back to factory configuration.

Compatiblity issue..


You may install up to 4GB of DDR RAM in this motherboard. It does not use DDR2.

This is from your manual:

Dual-channel DDR400 memory support
Employing the Double Data Rate (DDR) memory technology, the motherboard supports up to 4GB of system memory using DDR400/333/266 DIMMs.

If you would care for the manual, here is a link:
