    When I ran a diagnostic report on my laptop (Satellite L500-1XL) it said that my RAM was low and to upgrade it for better performance - it has been very slow to start up as of late.
    However I have discovered that my model has been discontinued and I'm not sure what to do.
    Any suggestions?

    Bear in mind I am a total novice when it comes to computers so nothing too technical please!
    Thank you.

    With more RAM your notebook will have better performance.
    According notebook specification your notebook is delivered with 2 GB RAM but it can be upgraded up to 4 GB.

    So buy second 2 GB RAM and upgrade your notebook.

    Dear Lottie

    You will need an DDR3 1066MHz (PC3-8500) 2GB RAM module in order to upgrade the memory to 4GB.
    You can do this yourself. Itís not very tricky and as far as I know the details can be found in the user manual.

    There are some pictures and step by step instruction how to upgrade the RAM.
