I plan to upgrade my Toshiba L300-14X's memory from 2GB to 4GB.
The problem is the manufacturer and Intel (because I have Intel® GL960 Express Chipset with ICH8M) explicitly state that the maximum memory my laptop can handle is 2GB.
However, I searched and found there are users installed 4GB in their laptops, and moreover,
dmidecode -t 16 code in my Linux returns this output:
Location: System Board Or Motherboard Use: System Memory Error Correction Type: None Maximum Capacity: 4 GB Error Information Handle: Not Provided Number Of Devices: 4
Though I don't have 4 devices, but only 2 slots for RAM,
dmidecode seems it knows what it is talking about. Yet, I am still not sure as to 4gb (2x2gb) will work.
