Max Memory

Just a quick question. How can I find out the maximum RAM I can install on my machine? I have a Satellite L505 ES5018. It came with 3GB of RAM. I was told it was upgradeable to 8GB. I just wanted to be certain.

Re: Max Memory

You look at the detailed specs for that model.  Go to the product support link at the top of this page, enter in the model number, then click on the detailed specs tab. 

 

8gigs is the max it can accommodate.

No problem.  It's all in knowing where to look.  The first place to check is the Product Support Link at the top of this page for your detailed system specs (or if it isn't a USA model the product support site for your country).  Next check Kingston and Crucial.  Between the three of them you should be able to find out all you need to know about the memory for a specific computer.
