memory upgrade with access issue

AMD A10-7300 Radeon R6, 10 Com
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I would like to top off my new HP AMD A10-7300 Radeon R6, 10 Compute Cores 4C+6G laptop board with a mem upgrade from 6gb to 12gb or 16gb with better speed, without going nuts. However, unlike my old & dead HP dv7 which was quite accessible to most of the parts, including a 2nd empty HD bay which worked great, Crucial warned when I allowed them to look at my system for potential upgrade of the system memory, one of the chips is underneath a component that needs removing to access the 2nd chip.

I have used Diskeeper on all of my systems for several years to good advantage of keeping drives defragged better than Microsoft's Defrag. The newer does some I/O management to assist faster management tasks such as moving or copying data from old drives to the new systems.

memory upgrade with access issue

Hi,

 

Yes, I can spend no more than 5 mins to add/replace RAM or to swap HDD on older machines but for new design, this may take hours to do. Now my question: what is your machine ? Please use the following instructions to find out the model/product of your machine:

memory upgrade with access issue

Access is the big problem. Is there a REAL "experienced" user manual in PDF available. If I look at it, and appears too scary I would flee to someone more experienced. I do not have the $ I used to have to hire someone.

 

I so not do any exotic games, but do a lot of data manipulation which often grows to syncing large amounts to more easily managed areas. Using Explorer a lot can really bog things down if good amounts of sys memory is not available. On this system I want to load it up to max speed & amount of memory. Any new HD is WD Black, but the 1tb is a new experience to me.

Thanks for the interest; I would really like some info if it is available.:smileyhappy:
