If you examine the area of the case above the keyboard (the small area between the keyboard and the screen hinges), you should see that it is a separate piece from the rest of the case. This small section of case should just pry off (be careful not to break it or the locking tabs). Once you have pried this off, you should see 2 or 3 screws holding the keyboard down. Remove these screws and the keyboard should come out. If you are just accessing the RAM, you shouldn't have to unplug the keyboard ribbon cable.

Samsung NP900X1B-A01FR Ram slot


Most likely you will have to remove the keyboard to access the memory slots. I don't know why they do that. Most manufacturers have an access panel on the bottom for ram.

How to replace cmos battery on satellite p105-s6217 laptop


Turn the laptop over and remove the battery pack.

From the bottom of the laptop, unscrew the plastic shells securing the slots for memory,


Bluetooth, hard drive and modem.

You may have to remove more than one screw for each shell. Keep all screws in a small container, away from the work area.


Remove the memory (RAM) modules, the hard drive and any optical drives (CD-ROM or DVD-ROM).

Press the clips on either end of the memory slot to raise the RAM module and detach by pulling it out. Work slowly and carefully, to prevent damage to RAM modules or the memory slot.


Do the same for all modules, if you have more than one.

Slide out the hard drive and optical drive. If the drives seem to be stuck, look for any screws you may have missed.


Turn the laptop over and insert a pointy tool under the thin strip at the top of the keyboard. Use the tool as a lever to pry the securing strip loose, while working with your finger to release latches along the length of the strip.

Remove the keyboard by undoing two screws securing it.


Raise the keyboard and disconnect its cables.

Close the laptop lid and turn it around, so that you are facing ports on the back.


Remove two screws from the metal plate around the ports.

Open the lid and remove a single screw securing the wireless card cover; the screw is under the keyboard, which you already removed.


Disconnect cables from the motherboard.

Access the board through the space created by removing the keyboard. Unplug the speaker cable from the motherboard by carefully pulling at its head.


Unscrew and remove Wi-Fi antennas, and detach the wireless card from the motherboard. Unplug thin, ribbon-like cables from the video card.

Detach the display assembly from the base of the laptop.


Loosen any attachments, and pull the casing toward you to detach the display assembly, including the LCD panel, from the base.

With the motherboard completely exposed, unscrew and remove the video card.


Undo two screws from either side of the hard drive housing and detach the drive.

Dismount the CPU heat sink and detach the fan cable from the motherboard by removing five screws.


You can now access the battery board with the CMOS battery attached to it.

Undo two screws to detach the battery board from the motherboard.


Disconnect two cables running from the battery board, and carefully raise the board to detach it.

Replace the CMOS battery by prying it open with a pointy tool. Insert a new battery and reassemble the laptop.


hope this helps

How do i find the memory slot on my Advent Quantum Q100?


The Advent Quantum Q100 laptop has one Ram memory slot.
The Maximum Total Amount of Ram Memory is 2GB.
It uses SO-DIMM ram memory that is DDR2 at 667 MegaHertz. (667MHz)
Also known as PC2-5300 {SO-DIMM style}

The Ram Memory slot is under the Keyboard.

Past this point I am at a loss to describe how to remove the Keyboard.

1) Either you have to remove the LED cover above the Keyboard, and below the LCD screen to access screws which hold the Keyboard in place, (Computer off, and ALL power removed. AC adapter {Charger}, and Battery),

OR,

2) The LED cover (Power On button, LED's, etc, are in the cover), has to be removed, and there may be one, or two screws coming up from the bottom of the laptop, which hold the Keyboard in place.

Regards,
joecoolvette

How can i get to both memory slots so i can upgrade to 2GB of Ram? Thanks


Your laptop has two memory slots. One of the memory slots (external) can be easily accessed if you remove the cover on the bottom of the laptop.

The second (internal) memory slot is located under the keyboard.

Keyboard removal procedure:
1. Unplug the AC adapter and remove the battery.
2. Remove two screws securing the keyboard on the bottom of the laptop. These screws are marked with a small keyboard symbol.
3. Release 4 keyboard retention tabs located on the left side from f1, f5, f9 and delete keys.
4. Lift up the keyboard and place it upside down on the palm rest.
5. Unlock the keyboard cable connector on the motherboard.
6. Remove and replace the keyboard.

Hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a Toshiba Satellite 1905-S301 that has 512mb of DDR memory currently. I have a stick of 128 that I was going to throw in there to boost performance but when I opened the compartment the there was...


There are 2 types of memory, one for laptops and one for pc.

Your additional stick seems to be for pc from what your saying.

Additional thoughts:
I'm sure you can buy sticks for laptops at walmart or whereever you bought ur laptop. Just make sure it is the same speed type. Example: yours is 512mb ddr PC 5200, you will need to find PC5200, the 512mb and up you shouldnt have to worry about. So do your research before you upgrade or you will burn your laptop.

My HP Pavilion zt1170 fails to boot 90% of the time. Once power was turned on, I could hear the fan run for one second and stopped. No video, yet the LED was on. It seems like it froze. Occasionally, it...


I also have a ZT 1170 and it began to do the same thing. It was a bad solder joint in the RAM slot connector in the bottom of the laptop. It would intermittently cause the laptop to hang on bootup, or to randomly lockup.
This laptop has two slots for RAM. One is underneath the laptop behind a small access door, and the other is under the keyboard and requires removal of the keyboard to access it.
To find out if your laptop problem is due to the same issue, open the bottom access panel and remove the bottom RAM memory card. Try booting it up. It should still be able to run, although more slowly due to having less RAM. If it starts up, you are closer to isolating the problem.

In my case, I initially thought I had a defective RAM card, so I purchased another 256Mbyte card for the laptop (mine came with two 256Mb cards), but the new card had the same problem. Then I discovered that pressing down on the RAM card would momentarily fix the problem, which clued me in on it being a bad connection. It seems that heat under the laptop causes some of the solder connections between the memory slot connector and the main PC board to develop hairline cracks. I was able to find the cracked joint and resolder it, but you almost need a microscope to do it. Depending on how much installed memory you need, you could simply leave the one slot empty, and buy a larger RAM card to stick into the other slot (under the keyboard). This laptop can accept a maximum of 512Mbyte card in each slot, for a total of 1024Mbytes.

Memory Install


You can usually find manuals for gaining access to the Ram slots, but I have opened up a Tecra before. Though not exactly the same model. you have to remove the plastic strip along the top of the keyboard (under the screen). Most of these pop up with SLIGHT pressure from a screwdriver but be careful, it may have one or more screws in the bottom of the laptop. Turn it over and look for any deep holes that might have screws that screw into the plastic strip on the top. Once you have the strip off, you can usually see easily how to remove the keyboard.

Memory slots?


I found the solution to roger2 and my own problem. The secondary memory add-on slot is on the bottom of the unit, and can be accessed by removing one screw and the slot cover. The other, main memory slot is actually located underneath the keyboard. You should shut down the computer completely, unplug the power plug, and also remove the laptop battery before installing memory. Also, it may void your warranty if you mess around inside of your laptop, so please keep this in mind. You will need to take a very thin flat head screwdriver to gently pry up the panel above the F1-F12 keys. The panel is the entire plastic piece covering the speakers that has the power on, play, stop, ff, rw buttons on it. I used a very thin and flat hair clip that I found laying around to pry up the edges starting from the Pause/Break key moving left towards the ESC key. The screen lid has to be opened all the way for the piece to be completely removed. Once that is taken off, you will see two small screws holding the keyboard in place. Remove these two screws and gently pull out the thin ribbon cable connecting the keyboard to the laptop. The ribbon cable is located directly underneath the spacebar, so move slowly and carefully when removing the keyboard so as not to damage anything. In the center of the exposed area, there is a sort of rectangular metal cover with two screws holding it in place. The one that is about the same size as the slot cover on the other memory slot is the correct one. Remove the screws and open the metal cover. Underneath is the other memory slot. After you install the other memory stick, if you have 4 GB of total RAM, you should know that in 32-bit operating systems, Windows will only be able to use approximately 3.0-3.5GB of RAM. This is because of a limitation of 32 Bit Windows operating systems, and not because of the RAM itself. Only 64-bit operating systems will be able to use all 4 GB. On my system for example, I have the same Toshiba M105-S3041 laptop as you do, running Windows XP Home with two 2 GB sticks, and My Computer properties shows that I have 2.99 GB memory.
