    I got a question here....I have a Compaq 720CA laptop, and am wondering what kind of RAM I am able to put in it for upgrade. Do I need a certain kind? Thanks for the help.

    see your mother board's specs dude.
    some mother boards won't allow you to add more than 512.( that's for desktops donnu about laptops, but I think it's the same.

    no, a paper I got with my laptop said I could upgrade up to 1 GB or whatever it is...but can I just go to the store, and say, I want 128 MB ram, or what? do I need certain kind of ram?
