    I understand that - I just always like to download from the developer where possible to ensure it's the latest version... without having to check

    mine too!

    try crucial.com as well

    can also tell u what ram it takes and the maximum it will allow! =)

    Another recommendation for CPU-Z, no install required and it gives you accurate information about exactly what's in your system. I don't find the Crucial memory tool to work that well as it's incorrectly identified systems in the past.

    I don't see why u don't just open it and look to be 100% sure ? It shouldn't be difficult :?

    It is my father's laptop; he lives several hundred miles away and wouldn't even know what RAM looks like.
