Title: Wanted: Laptop RAM (DDR2) Mahala...
Post by: LAV on May 23, 2011, 02:38:43 PM
Yes, yes, I know, free lunches and all that. Trying to help a friend by repairing his sister's dead Sahara laptop. She's a nurse and still busy with her practical training. I suspect RAM failure, but I don't want to buy brand new RAM only to find the mobo's ill or the PC has some other scary affliction, so looking for a single 512 MB or 1 GB DDR2 laptop module. If it tests OK, then the machine could be worth fixing, otherwise not really worth it.

How many slots does the laptop have?

I only have 2x256MB modules here. I am prepared to post them to you mahala if you want them.

That would be a much better option.

Thx guys, very kind. I'll obviously pay postage, and even send it back if needed and/or pay for it if I can get the old machine working. Just don't want to ask the owner to spend a lot if the machine cannot be saved, as she cannot afford it. Will PM further details.
