Hello Everyone, I'm Kinda New Here so It's Nice to Meet You All :)

So May I ask if Anyone Of You Has A 2010 NEC Laptop With Model VA-A?

If you Have, May I Ask How many Ram Ca n I Put Into It,I Only Have 2GB ram and I want to upgrade to,say 8GB..
I Can't find Manual For VA-A Laptop on the NEC Website and I Don't If my MoBo can handle that much ram..
So may I Ask How Many?
Your answer is well appreciated :):)

Specs:
MoBo:NML95(NEC is the Manufacturer)
CPU:Intel® Core 2 Duo P8700 @2.53GHz

(Tell me if you need More)

Peace

Model NEC NML95
Socket Socket P (478)
North Bridge Intel GM45/GM47 rev 07
South Bridge Intel 82801IM (ICH9-M) rev 03

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_P

if its this model its only max of 4gb - link
strange how model with P8600 can run 8gb - https://browser.geekbench.com/geekbench3/compare/5900689/5900689 and it appears to use same parts. its all very murky
Ohhh,That's Sad But Thank You For Your Response..It Helped A Lot..
Still,may I ask IWhat Will Happen If I still Insert 8gb ram on it,Will it work? Thank You

Sorry I couldn't say it was more. If you put more in, it can't use it.

you probably don't need to get the exact sticks, I expect any 2gb SO-DIMM, DDR3-SDRAM PC3-8500 would do..

I can only find the 535 ram on 1 website and its sold out, so should be able to use another one.

its difficult to find any info on any on the 8gb one to see what the differences might be. Its always possible the machine had 8gb in it but couldn't use it all. As the sites are for benchmarks.

if you search for Sodimm DDR3-SDRAM PC3-8500
or DDR3 1066 Sodimm

for instance - https://www.ramcity.com.au/collections/ddr3-1066-sodimm
Thank you for walking me through,I guess were done here...See you again at my next Question :)
