Problems with adding RAM to a lappy?
will it be any problem to add more ram to a lappy or replace it?
Can you mix sticks (size) with a lappy like a box?

Depends on lotsa stuff, Cheryl. Laptops are very proprietary, so lots of things effect if you can add certain types of RAM or not. Speed of the RAM possibly won't be as much of any issue as type - not just pin count, but stuff like ECC or not, especially. And some RAM slots will only take specific size RAM modules, another trap. If you know the model number of the laptop and you can see the model number of the RAM you want to add, you can often check if they are compatible by googling both sets of numbers.

Just try to get the same speed RAM as what's currently in there. You shouldn't have much problems by doing that. Size doesn't matter (unless its maxed out), you can mix them.
