Difficulty locating memory chips in my Acer Aspire L310

Hi! I'm low tech savvy, so please don't laugh.:)
I want to add ram memory to my Aspire L310 Acer computer. It's smaller and slim-lined. I know the type of memory needed. (I downloaded Pc Wizard 2008). My problem is, when I opened the top of my computer, I could not see the memory chips or the area where they are seated.
Where exactly is this area located? I see a plate with a plastic handle marked "Acer" on it. Do I have to take this out to reveal the memory chip area? The bottom of the computer doesn't have any screws and I don't know how to remove it if it can be removed at all.
Please help!

Gary

Dear its ok and as you have open the top cover so look for removing the cd or dvd drive or any other device which is covering your motherboard. and to open the same there are no screw but they use plung and lock system. So you can fine some plastic notch which marked by lock and unlock. So unlock the same and than you might get the ram slot where ram to be added. so when you added it please look for the position of notch on ram and slot are at same place and than fit is properly that it get locked. So this might definately resolve your proble.

Just want to now what is the biggest duo 2 cpu can you put in the acer aspire l310 desktop


This is the standard equipment for your model.
Problem is, your system is already maxed out for heat.
If you add a faster CPU, you will most likely suffer from overheating, but yes you can add up to a 3 gig+ duo with no problem fitting it in the socket. Expect your power supply fan to run constantly though.

Processor: 1.86GHz Core 2 Duo E6300
Memory: 1GB DDR2
Storage: 320GB hard drive
Optical Drives: Double-layer DVD±RW
Monitor: None
Graphics: Integrated Intel GMA 3000
Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium

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

How do I add more RAM memory


It is easy to add more RAM to the laptop, the first thing you need to know is the type of memory you model uses. Your model uses DDR2@533MHz up to 2 GB RAM (2 chips 1 GB each).
PLACE THE LAPTOP UPSIDE DOWN ON A SOFT CLOTH. MAKE SURE YOU DON'T MISPLACE THE SCREWS.
1. Remove the larger cover in the back of the laptop (2 screws) ; the memory chips are under this cover.
2. Replace the chip(s) with larger capacity chip(s).
3. Put the cover back (using the 2 screws you safely removed in step 1). Thats it!

Acer Aspire E380 memory


Hi pimp69,
You can only use components compatible with Aspire series computers. Before you choose new components, please ask your authorized Acer dealer whether the part will operate within your Aspire series system. This is noted in your manual pg. 6.
Compatible memory for your Acer. Don't forget your Acer uses an intergrated graphics card that uses your system memory to function.

Good Luck & Kind Regards.

How to change add RAM to Acer Aspire


first check with www.acer.com to see that expansion is possible.

all computers like their memory upgrades in sets, instead of singles(like changing both front tires on your car or truck)..so compatibility among the two is more vital than matching to existing ram cards.
