I am wondering how many slots there are for RAM in this laptop.
Where are they, and how many gigabytes of ram can each slot handle? Thanks.
Here is a link to show how to change the memory out<ADMIN NOTE: Broken link has been removed from this post by Dell>

It can hold up to 2X 4GB = 8GB total.
I searched and tried a few memory card and I can tell you, look for memory that it's 100% compatible to DELL.
I used CRUCIAL, select your laptop model and buy. site www.crucial.com/.../dell-memory
Good luck :-)
Two, and each will take up to a 4G module for a total of 8.
Can i use 2x8Gb sticks for a total of 16?
why Can't i use 2x8Gb?
See above. The system supports up to 2X4G or 8 max.
I have an Intel i3 N5010 Inspiron laptop with default Hyundai 3 GB ram and WIndows 7 x64 installed.
I bought 2 x 4 GB Corsair RAM ( Corsair 8GB DDR3 1333MHz CL9 2x 4 GB ValueSelect ) and replaced the old ones.
With 8 GB installed Windows does not start and the Laptop powers off when Windows tries to start.
With only 4 GB ( Corsair ram ) installed a blue screen is displayed when Windows tries to start and the following error is displayed:
IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL - 0x0000000A
Please help, thanks,
The new RAM is either faulty or not compatible with the system.
I have run a DOS RAM test and it freezes but does not return any faults/errors.
Any ideas how can I check if this ram is compatible with my sistem ...it should be because respects the laptop specifications ( DRR3 1333MHz CL9).
You'll need to ask the manufacturer. While RAM "should be" compatible, it often is not - particularly if it's low-end RAM, which is very often built to sloppy tolerances.
Thanks for answers, you mean ask DELL right? ( or Corsair ?)
You need to ask Corsair about compatibility. If you're looking for guaranteed-compatible RAM, Crucial and Kingston have Dell-certified RAM.
I replaced the Corsair RAM with Kingston and the problem is fixed ... 2 x 4 GB Kingston 1333 CL9.
I also tried Corsair ValueSelect in my Inspiron N5010 and after a few days I got the exact same blue-screen-of-death error which persisted until I took the RAM out. Looks like I'll be buying Kingston.
I have inspiron 15 Intel (N5010). But it came with 3GB RAM (not with 4GB).
How many slots are there and how much can I upgrade ?
Can I upgrade by myself after purchasing online ?
