The chip support DDR3 (up to 1333Mhz).
My guess is 2 slots (2 x 2GB) but we need to know the model number of the ASUS laptop.

You know the real meaning of peace only if you have been through the war.

now im a novice but my dad got a older lap top and he only had 1 gig so was really slow . i told him i would put 1 in for him but he didnt trust me so i unscrewed mine and took it out and then put it back in just to prove i could do it. his was older ddr2 so had to put 2 1 gig in which was the max it could have. but back to mine there was only one in there so does that mean i need to take mine out and put a 8 gig ram cuz i was hopeing just to put another 4 gig in there to make it 8 u said u need the model number where would that be cuz i dont really want to open it up again to look at it thanks

"my dad got a older lap top and he only had 1 gig so was really slow"

You didn't provide any info about the "older laptop", which OS it's running, or what your dad uses it for. 1GB is enough RAM to run XP decently so if that's the OS & it's running slowly, it's probably due to accumulated garbage files, too many startup apps running, hoggish AV program (Norton, Mcafee, etc), spyware, fragmented HDD, etc.

"but back to mine....i was hopeing just to put another 4 gig in there to make it 8 u said u need the model number"

What do you do that would require 8GB RAM? Do you have Win7 32-bit or 64-bit? If you have the 32-bit version, it would be pointless to add more than 4GB. To be able to help, we need to know the model of the laptop (or netbook). All we know is it's an ASUS & it's based on the AMD Brazos platform.

Go to www.crucial.com and use their scanner. It will tell you how much memory, type of memory you have and what your options are to add more.

As noted, if you have a 32bit version of Windows, do not bother. You need a 64bit version to use more memory than you have.

If you do just basic computing, homework, internet (including facebook, skype, etc), email, you will not see much change in your computing with over 4GB of memory. If you use Photoshop, Autocad, Video processing software, Excel files with near 65,000 lines or more, or other software that uses massive amounts of memory, then you will see an immediate improvement.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Pay attention! Do you have the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows? 32-bit can NOT use more than 4GB RAM! And what do you use your notebook for that would require 8GB RAM? The extra 4GB won't make your system perform any better if you don't actually need it for anything. And why was it too difficult for you to go to the Asus site & look up your system's specs?

And you should stick to one thread.

Reread #4 above for the alternative if you do not want to look it up from the manufacturer's site.
