Question about Toshiba Satellite U205-S5002 Notebook
I want to upgrade ram, from 1 gb to 2 gb, in my toshiba u205-s5002 laptop. there is no apparent ram access from the laptop back, i have heard that ram accesses is from below the key board, are there any web instructions for doing this
If you're brave, you can try this, but be careful about what you touch. 1st of course, unplug the power and remove the battery, just for some safety for both you and the laptop. 2nd, take a very small flatblade screwdriver and gently pry where the hinge is between the piece of plastic that covers the hinge and the display. It should pop up. Gently pull up on the piece that covers the power button but be careful not to pull all the way away from the PC as there will probably be a cable attached. You might have to pry the other side of the plastic up at the hinge also. Sometimes the mfg. puts screws in at the back to hold this in so check there 1st also. Once you get the top piece off, there should be 3 to 4 screws holding the keyboard on. Depending on the model it may instead have a single screw holding it on from the bottom. If so they usually put a keyboard symbol next to the screw on the bottom. Make sure you use a static strap when removing or replacing the RAM so you don't shock it with body static. Attach the strap to one of the standoffs on the back used to attach one of the connectors on the back. This is a safe place to ground yourself. After replacing the RAM put it back together in reverse. Most laptops are dissassembled this way from the top, but not all. In some cases the hinge cover is removed separately and then the cover to the power button which covers the top of the laptop under the display, but on the laptop itself. Hope this helps.
