Improve RAM with a laptop's memory module

Thu Jul 02, 2020 9:37 am

Hi,

I just got a memory module from an old laptop.
Laptop: Dell Inspiron 14z - 5423
Memory module: hynix hmt351s6cfr8c-pb n0 aa

Here's my question: is it possible to improve the RAM of my Raspberry Pi 4B by connecting (I don't know how) the memory module to it?

Thank you!
Vall

No, not possible. The Pi does not have a memory socket of any description - memory is soldered to the board.

Let us sincerely hope that the OP doesn't try to "improve" his laptop by adding a CM to it....

There was once a similar question posted...and was also quickly struck out. :D
"Don't come to me with 'issues' for I don't know how to deal with those
Come to me with 'problems' and I'll help you find solutions"

Some people be like:
"Help me! Am drowning! But dont you dare touch me nor come near me!"
