Does anyone know if it possible to increase the RAM.
The Elpida chips look upgradeable...

While I did this I stabbed my finger with the 450 degree soldering iron by accident.
My finger looks like it has a radioactive disease now.

Be careful with soldering irons. OK.

Did you ground yourself prior to digging into the circuit board? If not, you may have fried a delicate component with a every so slight static electric discharge.

Lol, nice.

No didnt ground myself. I think the board is dead now...was just curious to see how it all fitted together, until the soldering iron attacked me.

If you want to upgrade the ram, you're going to have to google the number on the ram and find the exact same ram chip but of course a larger one.

My buddies was doing this to a modem or something. I think they were successful?

Those pesky rogue soldering irons have become a real problem lately. We were forming a task force to get rid of them but it looks like the soldering guns we were going to use may be outlawed. So we are now looking at trap and release.
