Hi,

I recently put an additional 1Gb memory in my Freevents X50. The hardest part was removing the casing - which I could do not completely.

There are two slots for the memory which can be found under the bottom right of the casing - below the keyboard (where the stickers are near the 3 USB Slots).

Beware I really had a lot of trouble with the case thoug. I removed all the screws for the casing only to find it was still attached somewhere in the middle under the keyboard and I could'nt find where !.

Eventually I managed to insert the card in the slot by gently parting the casing at the side - not an ideal solution because I could have broken something if I was not gentle but it worked !

What is the model of this brand and model of this Laptop? How many memory sticks do you wish to install?

In most Laptops, if you flip it over so you are looking at the bottom where the battery is, there is a cover held on by one screw that has an "M" etched into it. That will have one of the memory slots and sometimes both depending on the brand. If there is only one memory slot there and you need to upgrade two, replace that the 1st and the 2nd will be under the keyboard. Taking the keyboard off is fairly simple, you will have a plastic strip on where the buttons are that should have a little groove on the right or left side just big enough to fit a small screw driver in. Carefully pop off that plastic strip. You will now see anywhere from 1-3 screws that holds the keyboard down. Remove those screws and very slowly and carefully remove the keyboard, you may have to disconnect a cable on the bottom of the keyboard if you cannot move it far away enough to install the memory 2nd memory stick.

Please let me know if this solved your problem or if I can be of further assistance.

Thanks,
Adam

Philips Freevents X65 - how do I access memory slots to upgrade


Most times the memory slots will be on the bottom of the laptop. You just remove the power cord, remove the battery then remove the screws to the cover that houses the memory. Look for little icons on the cover, the circular discs will be the cd drive and the hard drive. The memory cover icon will have a jagged square on it.

If the memory is not on the bottom of the laptop then it will be located under the keyboard and palmrest area which means you will have to take them apart to get to it.

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.

How to upgrade RAM memory for Laptop Philips X50 Freevents?


there are 2 memory slots under the keyboard cover at the front right of the laptop. If you unscrew the 4 screws at that run along the front of the base and the 2 that relate to the front right as you look down at the keyboard you will be able to gently unclip the keyboard cover on that side and gain access. be careful though as the cover is held in place on the left by a hidden clip that I have not found as yet.
The dimm installed in the back slot is a 512mb ddr333mhz pc2700 sodimm.

Installing Memory


Hi

Yes, you can replace/upgrate the memory module under the keyboard.

Before you proceed, note that Dell Inspiron 2650 uses DDR200 3.3V SODIMM modules. Also, memory module capacities supported are 128MB and 256MB with a Maximum memory of 512MB. If the current memory installed is 128MB, you need to order 2x 256MB modules to replace/upgrade both memory slots. If the installed capacity is 256MB, you just need another 256MB for the slot underneath the laptop.

Check "Removing the Keyboard" for guide removing the keyboard to access the 2nd memory slot.

Read "Preparing to Work Inside the Computer" before committing to the above procedure.

Let me know how you get on.

Are you sure you have all the screws out, there is a small plastic disc on the bottom of the laptop underneath the card slot, this needs to be removed to access a screw (obviously take out plastic blank in slot first).

And there is not much reason to dismantle LCD either.

What is it you are trying to do.
