    Hello All,

    I have the laptop as mentioned in the subject thread. The laptop has no RAM, no Hard Drive and the charger port pins on the inside is also missing.

    This is my first laptop that I've ever owned and I'd like to do it up. I need to know a few things if you all can help please.

    1. What kind of RAM can I put in there and how much (Size-Price)?
    2. Can I upgrade the graphics card in the laptop and will it be expensive (Cant find single GPU's like 660M!??)?
    3. Can I just put in an SSD in the hard drive area inside?
    4. What is the SPEC of this thing?
    5. I also need a charger cable for this. Please advise.

    More questions may come :)

    Thanks.

    ASUS: Find and buy cheap PC Laptops and PC Notebooks with Shopping.com UK.

    That's the only info I could pull up on it through my phone,

    Ram wise it would be ddr3 sodimms, any size 1-2-4gb,

    Ssd wise, you will be able to just plug a ssd in as it will boot from it as it would a normal hdd, although it sounds like it's been ripped apart for pieces so there may be something wrong with it internally,

    Graphics cards are very had to change in laptops, as there usually designed not to be removed and are usually specific sizes. Not to mention the laptop mobo may not support the power requirements of any other gpu so i doubt you'll have any luck im afraid, there seems to be very little on the Internet about this laptop????

    The charger port pin will need to be changed inside the machine, usually means taking it to a pc specialist and they will most likely be able to source a charger or at least tell you what type you need!!!

    I'm sorry I couldn't be more help!!!! I hope you bought that cheap! It needs a lot adding to it!!
