Im not very computery and I just want to check a few things. I have a new Fujitsu Siemens Amilo L series laptop nad wish to play Planetside on it. Sys requirements for planetside can be found at http://planetside.station.sony.com/support...nimum_specs.jsp

According to my system specs I have 192mb Ram installed which is clearly not enough to run Planetside. I am terefore loking to install another memory module. How do I know wether I have a free slot for one? My laptop has no access panel on the back so how do I get access? and How do I know what mem module will work with my computer and what size to use?

I would be very grateful if someone could check the specs of my computer against those needed by PLanetside and inform me of naything I need. My comp can be found at https://sslrelay.com/s84957758.oneandonesho...view.shopscript

Any help will be greatly recieved thankyou.Tx

Use EVEREST to find out if you have any free slots for more RAM.
It's a free, system information, system diagnostics and benchmarking program.

Then you can go one of these 3 sites, plug in your computer specs, and they will give you recomendations as to how much, and what type of RAM, you need to use.
Crucial
Kingston
Corsair

These are reputable companys that stand behind their products. Also, check out the info on
their sites. There's a lot of good info about RAM, definitely worth the read.

Whatever you do, don't buy "cheap" RAM.
This is one area where you definitely, get what you pay for.
MOBO: GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4P, CPU: Phenom II X4 955 Deneb BE, HS/F: CoolerMaster V8, RAM: 2 x 1G Kingston HyperX DDR2 800, VGA: ECS GeForce Black GTX 560, PSU: Antec TruePower Modular 750W, Soundcard: Asus Xonar D1, Case: CoolerMaster COSMOS 1000, Storage: Internal - 2 x Seagate 250GB SATA, 2 x WD 1TB SATA; External - Seagate 500GB USB, WD 640GB eSATA, 3 x WD 1TB eSATA

According to the stat sheet on the link you provided both models have 512MB DDR SDRAM, not 192MB.

You game needs Windows® 98/2000/ME/XP
Pentium® III 1.0 GHz or greater. You have that.
256 MB RAM - You have 512 - possibly - the 64 the video card is using as shared.

Game needs
Direct3D compliant video card with 32MB RAM *

You need to find out if the video card is compliant.

My laptop is an Amilo L7300. Supposedly it has 256 mb DIMM, SD Ram. Apparantely! But my laptop only reports 199.7 mb. When I try to run planetside...I get an error saying I only have 199.7mb, not 256. Why dont I have 256 when my mem module is 256. Im so confused is it something to do with the type of memory?
