    Live-CD + PCI slot RAM : What's the possibility?


    Alright, I thought about this for a while...

    What's the possibility of disabling (1)the RAM inside of a laptop, (2)the hard drive, and only allowing the CPU to run, while using RAM provided via a PCI card inserted into a laptop.

    Can it be done?
    How?

    I don't know if anyone has tried this...

    I'm old school. I mean, most of my knowledge comes from the early 2000s. Last time I checked, though, people made these cards that you could put in laptops. They were cards that could act as add-ons for a laptop. Well, a long time ago, I read/heard a person could insert one of these cards and it would have RAM attached to it. That would allow for an increase in RAM for the computer.

    But what I'm interested in at the moment is using the add-on RAM instead of the RAM _inside_ of the computer.

    Maybe I'm being stupid, but volatile PC RAM cards aren't made for laptops, are they?
