The newer HP laptops have the expansion ram slots above the mother board. Which means instead of taking the back cover off and slotting the ram in... you have to go in from back and remove some screws, then remove the keyboard and remove some screws, then remove some ribbon cables, then take off the plate below the keyboard, and then you can put your extra ram in place, and do everything in reverse. 1.5 to 2 hours worth of work which should take 15 minutes max.

They really don't like techs working on their shit anymore.
