A RAM module has gone out on your laptop and requires replacement. Without opening the laptop up or possessing any additional knowledge about your system, you know that you will most likely need to replace the module with a ______ type module.
Laptop and mobile devices typically utilize SO-DIMM type RAM modules, as these modules are smaller in form factor than typical DIMM modules.
While DDR 3 or DDR 4 could be an answer, this would require more detailed information about the motherboard on your system.
If you got this one right, you're not SO DIMM.
(Sorry for the pun; I couldn't help myself)
A SO-DIMM, SODIMM, or small outline dual in-line memory module, is a type of computer memory built using integrated circuits. SO-DIMMs are a smaller alternative to a DIMM, being roughly half the size of regular DIMMs.
SO-DIMMs are often used in systems that have limited space, which include laptops, notebooks, small-footprint personal computers such as those based on Mini-ITX motherboards, high-end upgradable office printers, and networking hardware such as routers and NAS …
