    What kind of memory do i need to replace 2x2gb to 2x4gb?

    Kingston, Crucial , Hynix, Samsung, Corsair and Micron are all good :).

    I don't think so (just a slightly performance difference), but I'd go with the Crucial recommended choice.

    That looks like a good recommendation. I really like Crucial memory, so think that'll be a good choice.

    Are those compatible modules that Crucial recommended? This page seems to be a good overview of the difference: https://www.oempcworld.com/support/singlevsdualram.html

    SOLVED Strange encounter with supposedly BT (British Telecom)

    I'm 100% sure that this is a scam... you did the right thing to hang up! Did they get you to run anything else other than netstat? They can't do any damage by running that, but they usually get you to run other commands or ask to take remote control of your PC. You can report the scam here if...

    Looks like identical spec memory :).

    Yes, I'm fairly confident that the memory on the link above would work. I checked the chip voltage was 1.5V (rather than DDR3L 1.35v) and it checks out ok. I can't guarantee it, but from what I can tell this is the memory you're after. Micron is a good brand. Might be worth making sure you can...

    The fuzz is just protecting the electrical components. To take the RAM out, you'd gently pull the metal retaining pins at either side slightly away. Just make sure you've grounded yourself first, to reduce any static that could damage the modules. It looks like normal SODIMM memory to me, so...

    I can't find much in the way of specifications for that ram, other than it's DDR3 1066Mhz as you've already mentioned. It's almost certainly SODIMM memory and there is loads of SODIMM DDR3 1066Mhz available, so should be easy to find. If the memory slot is easily accessible on the bottom of the...

    Laptop is struggling

    I don't think doubling the RAM will make any difference. I suspect it could be a network issue - if you've got a low powered NAS/server that handles everything, that may be where the bottleneck is (if it only applies to shared drives/network/internet). Can you see if the same thing happens when...

    Cannot delete "Avast Software" key from registry

    I think there may have been some crossed wires or misunderstanding, as I can't see any harassment at all. Delving is trying to help you, but in the other thread: https://www.w7forums.com/threads/how-to-delete-avast-software-key-from-windows-7-ultimate-registry.21296/
