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.

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.

Right-mouse click on My Computer
It should display your CPU-speed and the "new" amount of installed RAM.
If the CPU (Processing unit) is not switching at all, then first thing you can check is your RAM. Switch of the power supply and unplug the cables. Then open the top cover (or whatever your CPU has) of teh CPU and remove the RAM from its slot and install it again (place it in its slot as it is). Or if you have 2 slots for the RAM and only one RAM installed then try installing (placing) the RAM in the other slot which is empty. Plug in all the cables and switch the power supply. This method works most of the time. Gud luck.
