The Notebook Diagnostic Card itself only requires a 25-pin parellel printer port and usb port/cable. It is not necessary to install memory chips to perform analysis. “POST Codes” can be displayed through the hexadecimal display panel. Not all laptops display post codes through the printer port - some use a miniPCI slot. Check with your laptop manufacturer to be sure.
