About to replace the RAM SO-DIMM, what is the special film over it?
Hi, I am going to upgrade this laptop's SO-DIMM module. Following the great guide for it, I found my device has some kind of special "film" over the old module. It is about 0.5mm thick or less, gray colored and seems to be metallic (magnets attract it). It is very damaged though and breaks easily (see picture).
The user manual states: "For some models, a special film is attached onto the memory module to enhance the wireless LAN performance. When you replace the memory module, make sure that you do not remove the film". The picture in the user manual shows a different kind of film by the way...
Do you know if it is really important to keep it? Given its bad state it seems very difficult. I would like to buy a new one and put it just in case, but I don't know what it is called / how to shop for it. Can anyone give me advice for this? Thanks!
Is this a good question?
