Toshiba M35 Satellite - adding RAM

I have a hobby of helping seniors with their computer needs / repairs. I was contacted by an elderly lady with a "slow" computer - running xp. I determined it had only 512M - crucial mem indicated two 256's. I ordered two 512's and when I went to install found...two 256's connected together (I think soldered but highly taped together with two wires going from the top-most - furthest from the connector stick to the motherboard). I stopped dead - never saw this before. I did not remove it because the two wire are so so short there is little play - so I do not know for sure there is another slot under the one that is visible. Has anyone seen this? If I remove and there are two slots will it work once I disconnect these two wires??
