Adding RAM with little work space

The m8200n RAM slots are blocked by that expansion bay for hot swapping. I am unable to get that bay out, and i'm having real trouble getting my hands into that position, any tricks for either taking the bay out or making space to add the RAM?

How do you use the expansion slot?


I'm going to assume you're talking about the backside of the desktop computer? If so, you'd have to take the cover off of it to expose the guts. There is a big flat circuit board inside. This is called the "motherboard" or "mainboard".

If you look at the expansion slot from the inside you'll see the same metal plate covering it. This is to prevent dust from entering the system, and enhance cooling by controlling airflow. The plate can be removed from the inside, but I don't recommend it unless you're adding an expansion card to that slot.



Now, if you'll look at the motherboard right by that metal plate, you'll see a "slot". There are many different styles, based on the age of your computer, but in any case, it is where you might plug in an expansion card of some kind. Nowadays, just about every new machine has everything built into the motherboard, so there's not a lot of expansion to be done. But you may want to add a better graphics card, a second Network Interface Card, or something. That's what the slot is for. If I'm understanding your question, that is.

The installation and use of cooling fans in PCs is pretty straightforward once you understand the airflow layout and mechanical assembly.
You need to learn the necessary skills to make sure you are setting up your fans to direct the air where it will do the most good, as well as how to choose (and mount) the correct fan(s) for your situation.

Computer fans are manufactured in five distinct varieties: case fans, expansion-slot fans, hard-drive coolers, CPU fans and external drive-bay fans.
With case fans, there are several physical sizes that are measured in millimeters.
Another measurement the manufacturer will provide is the CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) the fan is rated for.
As a general rule, the smaller the fan in size and the higher the CFM rating, the more noise it will create.
Before you purchase additional fans, open your case to see what kind of fans can be added.
The fan size must match the size of the opening in the case to be at peak efficiency.
You will need to establish you have expansion slots available if you want to add an expansion slot-style fan.
It is crucial you establish a pathway for the air being moved inside your case to follow.
As an example, having all the fans blowing air from the outside of the case to the inside is not as efficient as having fans on the front of the case blowing cool air in while the fans located in the back of the case are sucking out hot air.
It is recommended the best practice is to position a case fan in the front bottom of your case (bringing in cold air) and at least one fan mounted midway up the rear of your case (expelling hot air).
If possible, use two fans in the back to expel the hot air as a lot of it is being introduced by the CPU cooling fan.

The mounting of case fans is done by using four course-thread screws usually provided with the fan.
These screws are self-tapping and will be inserted through the hole in the case wall created for a case-fan screw, then screwed into the case-fan body mounting hole.
Make sure you use all four screws to hold the fan securely.

The installation of an expansion slot fan can target specific areas where heat is generated.
When mounting one of these fans, make sure the expansion slot fan is not in direct competition with the fan mounted to a video card.
Having the expansion slot fan blowing directly into the video card's fan, which is trying to blow out air, will defeat both of the fans' purpose.
Hard-drive coolers usually mount to the circuit board side of the hard drive and work to keep it cool.
Because of the location of most hard drives, there is very little disturbance from the air that is released from the hard-drive cooler to the airflow pattern mentioned earlier.
External drive bay fans can provide an enormous amount if airflow, assuming there is an external drive bay open.

Emachines T5082 Adding 512Mb ram. Getting slot 0 installed slot 1 not installed.


Try swapping the memory in the two slots. It sounds like either one of the memory chips is bad or one of the memory slots is bad.
If you find that one of the slots is bad, then you might try just putting a 1GB Chip in the slot that works.

Product data sheet claims there are 2 memory bays but I find only one back in the memory expansion bay. How do I access the second (hidden) memory slot?


Some model laptops have memory slots in different locations.
One would be on the bottom of the laptop and one would be on top of the motherboard under the keyboard.
The memory slot on top of the motherboard would already be fitted with a memory module and only needs to be replaced with a larger RAM module if required.

I had a 1 gb ram on the my Asus P5VD2-MX mother board and tried adding 2 gb to the 2nd slot but computer alarm sounds. I swapped the 1 gb to the 2nd slot and alarm sounded again?? It seems the 2nd slot...


 you put the 2 gb in the first slot(that's the default setting on all motherboards-the biggest memory is in front) then in the second slot the 1 gb after that restart if you get the same sound the remove the battery on the motherboard and put it back to reset the bios after that restart.

Need more ram


Check out this link below to download a PDF manual, software, and more for your phone. Just copy and paste into your browser.

Once at this link go down the page to Copaq Armada E500 Series Reference Guide. This is a complete manual for your lap top. Go to page 107 of your manual.

Upgrading System Memory
You can expand memory by installing memory expansion boards.
Installation is performed easily by lifting the computer keyboard
and inserting the memory expansion board. To order a memory
expansion board, contact your Compaq authorized reseller. Refer
to the instruction card that comes with the option kit for
installation procedures.
IMPORTANT: If you upgrade memory, the computer increases the
Hibernation file size to accommodate the additional memory.
When the Hibernation files increases, it requires more hard disk
space.

Once you read this section and you know what your ram sticks are labeled you can go to e-bay and type it into the search and it will show you all for sale. I buy all my ram on e-bay. It's the cheapest place to by it. Just make sure you buy it from someone on e-bay that has quite a few feedback, this means they have been doing business on e-bay for some time.

Hope this helps, let me know if I can do anything else for you.

Where is second SDRAM slot for 2nd 512MB chip installation?


This note book has one RAM installed under the keypad and at the back is the expansion slot(DIMM) for adding additional memory. So the slot u see on opening the RAM cover(Part 35 in the manual). I am quoting directly from their manual, page 50:
The notebook has no SDRAM built into its motherboard, but has two slots for PC133 SDRAM
modules: a system SDRAM slot beneath the keyboard (containing an SDRAM module installed at the
factory), and an expansion slot on the bottom of the unit.
I hope this answers your question......sodeep

Asrock P4i45GV motherboard, second slot not working.


Have you used RAM with the same FSB rating? It might accept it if the FSB rating is higher, but if its lower then it will only recogonize the earlier one. Also try swapping your existing RAM to the other slot. If that works then the DIMM slots are OK, only match the FSB's.....sodeep

The ram expansion was probably it. I think he should just buy a new one and change the cases.
