    I have a Gateway MX6448 with an AMD Turion (tm) 64x2 Mobile processor running at 1.60 GHz, with 896 MB of RAM.

    I am pretty sure I need more RAM (music skips a bit when I have a lot of things open and it takes forever to open programs if a lot is running)

    What kind of RAM should I get and is it easy to install or should I have someone do it?

    Thanks a ton

    Very simple to do it yourself.

    There is usually a cover on the bottom of the machine you take off get to the RAM. Worst case, one slot will be on the bottom and one will be under the keyboard. I'm not familiar with that machine though...

    Awesome. Thanks a ton. I have never messed with laptop before and didn't know if it was cool to just crack open.

    Should be a simple access cover.
