Customer Question
Dear Panasonic guys, I...

Dear Panasonic guys, I have a beautiful, but old Panasonic notebook CF-Y5 LWWS7 JM. It appears to me it has 1GB of RAM and Windows Vista. Can you provide me a larger RAM module that I can install, or that I can have you install so that I can convert to a newer and supported operating system?

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your CF-Y5? Have you installed any updates recently?

I have installed no updates since I bought the machine about 2006.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

It's such a beautiful machine and so well built that I hate to discard it.

On the front of the machine is printed Panasonic CF-5Y Toughbook. On back is the long number I sent earlier CF-Y5 LWWS7 JM

Thank you for the update. You can upgrade to a maximum of 2GB by installing a 2GB ram stick.

You may purchase on the one that I found for you on the following page: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2GB-X1-MicroDIMM-for-PANASONIC-CF-R4-R5-R6-R7-T4-T5-W4-W5-Y7-Y8-DDR2-US-RAM-11-/251363669771
