That's your expandable slot that will let you add more RAM if you want to beef up the system. Generally, you'll slide it in at an angle until it seats and then push it down into the laptop to lock it into place. This is by far one of the easiest and cheapest things you can do to speed up your system! Give it a whirl-RAM is cheap. Please help me out by rating this tip accordingly if you liked it.

Power down your laptop and remove A/C adapter and battery. Be sure to ground yourself to prevent static electricity transfer. Small panel in the middle of bottom of laptop.
Remove screws and laptop RAM is right there. Be sure your RAM matches
as far values and doesn't exceed maximum size supported. There should
tabs that hold the RAM in. Replace pieces of RAM. Computer should recognize the new hardware and acknowledge it when you power it up. Hope that helps..
Check if there are RAM slots marked on the bottom of the laptop, they are generally a panel with some bolts and an icon of a chip, kinda like this. I do recommend however to go to a specialist for the upgrade and not DIY it at home. Also, it is quite possible, depending on the model, that you do not have a RAM extension slot at all and in that case you're stuck with what you have.. unless you buy a new computer that is. In any case I'd advise you seek a professional that can tell you if you can and if you should upgrade and give you some options. Hope I helped!
Four beeps means Faulty RAM. 1. If u know how to open and set RAM, then open ur RAM by simply opening the RAM cover on the backside of ur laptop, there wil be 2 screw, u have to open it first, then just remove RAM by pressing both side locks. 2. After removing the RAM, clean it with news paper aur any clean cloth. 3. Place the RAM again to its slot. (remember the cut mark of slot, don't try to place hardly) 4. After placing RAM, tight screws and then start the laptop again. 5. If the beeps are coming again then change the RAM. (If it is in warranty u can replace)
It's easy to add the memory yourself. Memory has a small compartment in the middle, you only have to unscew one screw to have access to it, the screw circled in the image below. When you put the memory in you have to put it to a 45 degree angle and press it down until it clicks in.
Then you close the cover and start the laptop. If you get a beep it means the momery is not installed properly.
Hello, yes it's possible. There are 2 memory slots under the keyboard. Take a look at http://www.ehow.com/how_6234021_install-memory-compaq-armada-e500.html for quite a lot of info on the Armada E500. Also youtube for some useful info. if you type 'Compaq Armada E500' into the search box. Regards nicam49
Remove both pieces of ram (mark them with a felt tip marker so you know which one is which), and clean the contacts on the ram and the slots with a pink pencil eraser. Be gentle though, you don't want to remove the gold on the contacts, just remove the oxidation and make 'em bright again. You can shape the eraser to fit the slot with a sharp knife - and be sure to remove the eraser debris from the slots with a soft brush (dry toothbrush is good) . If still no good try this:
Remove both pieces of ram.
insert the second piece of ram in the first slot (leave the other slot empty) If the second piece of ram is detected, then the ram is good, and the second slot is likely the problem. If the ram is not detected, then the second stick of ram is the problem. Confirm this by putting ram stick 1 into slot 2. If the known good stick of ram (1) doesn't work in slot 2, then the slot is dead. If this is the case, get a larger stick of ram for slot 1. Let me know if this helps or not.
Safely depends on your knowledge of computer hardware. If you know what you re doing, you can take the whole thing apart and replace any non-chip component you want (processor, drives, cards, etc). If you really look you can find sites that will tell you how to take apart a computer. If you don't know what you are doing and your current configuration works well, I would leave it for now, and wait until you can find someone that can help. Hope this helps.
