    I would like to know if i could increase the ram memory from my Toshiba ?

  2. I’m wanting to know if I can use my C55t-C5300 for recording and video of my own music? A video with sound, that I could put on a cd, much like a demo in the music business, can this be done just using what I have? Thanks Robert
