Whao... NEVER force something like that ESPECIALLY around the memory... you know you're supposed to be grounded before touching the RAM, right?... touch the case of a computer (on like the power supply) just before you work on it and as long as the computer was grounded... and turned on... you'll be grounded too... stay off the carpet at this point... try to do it in like a kitchen or something... or you can ruin the RAM... try sliding the cover in all different directions... you may just have to get Acer tech support on the line... I've upgraded Laptop Ram before, but laptops are different... try looking it up on the web... for a manual... I had to use one for an HP...

How to open desktop to add memory


If you have removed all the screws, it may be that you just need to slide the cover backwards to release the locking flaps. Try pushing the cover in several directions to see if it disengages something.

Cannot get ionto an Acer Aspire L100 to upgrade memory


There should be a small compartment on the bottom with two screws in it. Once removed you should see the memory chips. There are a few on the bottom of the pc, the smallest one should be the memory.
