I own a Everex laptop LM7WZ, it came with one 256k memory chip, but has a space for a additional chip. I just purchased a 1gb memory chip, and according to my wife, i can't install a memory chip, unless its exactly the same as the other one? It is the right type, and size, and correct pin numbers. I have a free open space for a upgrade.....can I install the chip, and have the other one still in, or do I need to remove the older one, and use only the 1gb? Or...do i need another chip of the same, and install a total of 2gb's.

My second question, besides removing the battery, and opening the panel, how does one go about installing a new ram chip?? Even tho, i have one in, and have a open space, is there any harm in just putting in the chip, and installing it??

If anyone would like to help me, it would be greatly appreciated, a walk threw would be a benifit. The EVEREX model manual can be found on line.

Thank you,

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. It takes DDR2 so for proper DDR2 performance, they should be a matched set. According to the manufacturer's web site, it currently has Memory: 256MB DDRII 533, upgradeable to 2GB . You could probably take out the 256 and put in the 1 g and will note a great boost in performance.

See http://www.everex.co...lm7wz/lm7wz.htm for more details.

Yes, that it all there is to it. Just be sure to observe proper anti-static discharge precautions when working inside of the computer. Use a grounding wrist strap or touch a metal part of the chassis. Static electricity can do serious damage. Use proper precautions, nothing to worry about.

You were the only person who knew exactly what to do. I had no clue if there was some sort of complicated problem with just putting a new one in, with a empty slot. Works great, Thank you!!!!!!!!!!

Quick question......would you know why I cannot get my flash drive to install?? I think there maybe a problem with having the correct driver installed. I ended up returning three differant flash drivers because i think the problem was they were dragged across the demagnetiser at wal-mart. When i get another one, would you be interested in helping me solve the problem, as i already returned the last one? Maybe in another 2 weeks I will be back here trying to figure out the problem.

Thank you for your help,

USB flash drives are pretty much plug and play. If you had a bad experience with 3 different drives, it probably wasn't a problem with the drives. Do other usb devices work on your computer?
