Removing cover on a Sony pvc 2242.

Hello sir,
I am trying to upgrade my sound card, video card and add more ram. After removing three screws on the back, I still can't get the cover off. So, what else do I need to do?

Thanks,
Dan

Are the screws on the left rear edge of the case? If so, those should be the ones. Sometimes it takes quite a bit of force to slide the cover back. You might have to slip a screwdriver in the gap at the front of the cover and pry a little.

How to fix 2 beeps


Hello there,
From page http://www.dell.com/support/troubleshooting/us/en/19/KCS/KcsArticles/ArticleView?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&docid=594853

It appears to be a RAM problem / fault. Try removing RAM (screw cover underneath Laptop) and re-seating. also try and start without RAM inserted to see if it is a RAM card fault.

How to open and upgrade RAM memory of gateway netbook model LT2704u?


This netbook is really the Acer Aspire One D255. You have to pop off the keyboard, then remove 4 screws that hold the back panel in place, which will allow you to remove that back panel in order to get to the memory.

Here's a video - blurry but it tells the story: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KYNTvF0-5M

Add more ram


hi-
To add ram - look on the back of the lap top. You will see some screws that are holding down a little door. There may be two of these. Remove the screws on the ram cover and remove ram cover

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Ram slots are stacked. you have to remove the top one first.
1- press the buttons on the sides of the ram chip, and then it will pop up and towards you.
2- 2- pull this ram upwards and out
3- from there, you can take out the other chip, if there is one, or you can start installing.
4- installing the new ram chips is just as easy
5- line up the slots in the chip, then push it in as far as you can without breaking it.
6- then push it down so that you hear it click on both sides, and doesn't budge.
7- Repeat using the top chip.
This should do it –
I hope it helps- please rate me – thanks

I have a sony vgc-rb30 I get 3 beeps when I power up. I have no video output, and the only peripheral that seems to work is the keyboard (at least the lights are on) I can't seem to find a motherboard...


The problem is exactly with your RAM sir , the 3 beep sound is an intimation of RAM not detection from the BIOS , i will tell the procedure to fix the RAM , if you know to remove the side cover of the machine remove it by opening the back side screws, in the mother board you can see a vertically fixed chip is called RAM , the RAM is locked with the white color notch at the both ends of RAM , if you release that lock you can get the RAM separately, after it you, have to rub the contacts of the RAM to clean the fungus layer on the contacts, after that fix the RAM again by watching the small cut in the RAM , if you not getting the display than this have to replace the RAM only sir , this is the picture of the RAM , don't forget to vote for meaf7dbe8.jpg

I want to add RAM, but I haven't yet found the slots. Can someone tell me where they are?


The slot will be on the bottom (the part of the laptop that sits on the desk). Remove the screw(s) that are holding the cover and you will see the existing RAM (usually a green module about 2 inches in length).

Acer Travelmate 270 Memory Upgrade


Acer TravelMate 270 upgrades:

The official upgrade slot is located on the bottom of the laptop and is easy to find. Just unscrew the small cover and there it is.

The other slot requires you to unscrew the two screen bracket screws. Once you have done this, between ESC and F1, F4 and F5 and F12 and PrtSc there are small plastic rings. Put a biro nib into these and pull down. They will pop down. You can now remove the plastic cover.
Unscrew the two screws marked "L9" on the bottom of the laptop which are located at the top of the memory cover. Now you can remove the keyboard. Underneath the keyboard is the second RAM slot. The SiS 650 chipset supports a max of 1GB per memory slot and since this laptop has two slots that means 2GB of RAM. I've used Kingston DDR400 PC 3200 SODIMMS.

You can also upgrade the CPU - the fastest CPU available is the Pentium-M 2.6GHz. Nothing faster will work - trust me on this. It must be a Pentium 4 Northwood architecture CPU with a 400MHz FSB. Standard P4 Northwood CPUs with the metal shim won't fit - unless you know a way of removing the shim without destroying the CPU. Best to stick with a Pentium mobile (Pentium 4 M) chip. Look on Ebay for these.

Of course the hard disk can also be upgraded - a 200GB 7200RPM 2.5" drive works a treat. Non SATA of course.

You can add wireless and USB 2.0 using PCMCIA carbus cards. I use a StarTech 54mbps wireless card with the RAlink chipset and a NEC USB 2.0 card with 4 USB ports. Both cards fit in at the same time.

The laptop absolutely flies with these upgrades.
