I am unable to find a way to determine if I can expand RAM on my computer without opening it up. I have googled and looked at the Toshiba website.

The Notebook I am using: Notebook Linke

According to Crucial's Memory Advisor listing for this laptop, the maximum memory is 8 GB. Since the laptop only came with 4 GB, you can upgrade the memory. To get to 8 GB, you would need to put in 2 4GB DDR3 modules.

You cannot add extra RAM without opening the computer up. See page 52 of the user's manual for information on installing more memory.

+1 - this isn't an upgrade that it's possible to make without opening the system, and I'm confused how you could think it is otherwise. – Shinrai Apr 3 '12 at 21:00
They aren't asking how to add RAM without opening the computer, they are asking how to determine if more RAM can be added without opening the computer. – mischab1 Apr 3 '12 at 23:21
