I have a Lenovo G700 with 4 Meg of memoery. I want to add a 4 meg card. The computer specs indicate that the machine has four RAM slots, but when I open the back up, I can only find one slot. Am I missing something? How do I find the other slots, or (if necessary) add a slot?

 

Thanks for any help you can give this hardware newbie.

Drillingmachine, I've opened my laptop twice and removed the existing card; the only slot I found was the one holding the current card. How do I add a second slot?

So there are two slots for memory. Maybe this helps http://imgur.com/a/zbELR
 
Taken from user guide ( http://support.lenovo.com ), put serial number there.

You probably have memory installed on a slot?

Drilling machine, I finally got my machine open, but I couldn't find the second slot. I guess I don't have one--bummer!

Well, bad luck then. Laptops are unpredictable.

Could you post a picture once you remove the RAM? Once in a long while they sneak one under the keyboard as well. Most of the time they are stacked ontop of each other, but I have replaced several under the Keyboard as well.

Since it appears to me that system supports max of 16GB RAM...if there are 2 slots, whether found or not, 1 8GB module would accomplish what you seem to desire.
