It's fairly simple.

How about a short video from youtube?

A couple things to remember:

Remove power.

Ground yourself on the computer case.

Make sure the notche(s) line up.

You may have a bad memory stick. If the two are not exactly the same spec they may not be compatible.

Haev you checked that your motherboard is capable of handling 2gb of memory? And that it is the correct type of memory(size and speed) and that you are placing it in the correct slots(ddr2 only goes in ddr2 slots and ddr only works in ddr)

The power supply makes no real difference to memory, replacing that is not a solution

SOURCE: How to install PNY OPTIMA 2GB DDR2 667 MHz memory card in lap top

Turn the computer off.
Remove the battery.
Unplug the AC adapter.
Turn the computer bottom-up.
Look for a few screws that secure a small panel.
Unscrew those screws, and remove the panel.
If you've selected the right panel, you should see your current RAM.
On the LEFT and RIGHT edges, there are small "fingers" that are holding the RAM.
Gently pull those fingers away from the RAM, and it should pop-up slightly, and you should be able to remove the RAM.
Notice that the "notch" in the middle of the RAM is slightly off-centre.
Insert the new RAM into the socket, and gently press down, until those two fingers "click" to grab the new RAM.

Depending on your "old" RAM, you may have:
* one "occupied" RAM slot (1GB), and one "empty" RAM slot;
* two "occupied" RAM slots (512MB/stick).

So, you may have to remove one RAM stick, to expose an "empty" RAM-slot "hidden" under the RAM.
Or, the "empty" RAM-slot may be visible without removing the RAM.

Or, you may have to remove one of the 512MB RAM-sticks, in order to free-up a slot for the "new" RAM.

Replace the cover-panel, and screw it in.
Reconnect the battery.
Reconnect the power-supply.

Start the computer.
Click Start
Point at My Computer
Right-mouse click on My Computer
Choose Properties
It should display your CPU-speed and the "new" amount of installed RAM.

I have Acer laptop Aspire 5570z module Zr1 with memory 1GB I want to increase memory 2GB or 3GB Is it possible or not What will be the expenditure?


Your laptop's RAM is upgradeable to up to 4 GB using two DDR2 533/667 MHz SODIMM modules.

So your upgrade options here are:
1. Buy a 1 GB DDR2 533/667 MHz SODIMM module & install it to get a total RAM of 2 GB (Price around US$ 25).
2. Buy a 2 GB DDR2 533/667 MHz SODIMM module & install it to get a total RAM of 3 GB (Price around US$ 45).

normal PNY issue, find your receipt and contact pny's rma department, ship it off with RMA number and get a replacement,, the only thing pny is a stickler for is the receipt to prove your original ownership as they don't allow second hand warrenty.. but who's to say who's receipt it is... there is no FIX for this, the ram is notorious for going bad

Having trouble with memory upgrade for Toshiba laptop


I don't see anything about DDR2 I do see DDR SODIMM.

Kingston ( a company owned by Toshiba) has the specs you need for your pc. Here is the link:

Reg ram upgradation


Each memory slot on the C555NR can support a maximum of 1GB of RAM. There are actually 2 slots, but only one is easily accessible to you. By upgrading both the primary and secondary DIMMs, you could achieve a total of 2GB of memory but you would have to remove the 512mb chip that is already installed and replace it with 1GB (+1GB in the expansion slot as well.)

If you don't plan on taking the computer to a professional to be serviced, you will probably only want to upgrade the memory in the secondary slot located under the memory cover on the underside of the computer. It can handle a 1GB SODIMM.

FYI the memory is:
200 Pin DDR2-533 PC2-4200 SODIMM

Good luck!
