The other slot is under the keyboard. You have to remove the top plate then remove the two screws and lift up the keyboard.

Sir i have a dell inspiron1464 laptop but the simslot is very large then sim how to insert?


Are you sure it is the SIM slot you are looking at? There may also be a memory card reader, which would be much bigger than a SIM card.

If you remove the laptop's main battery pack, you should find another slot hidden in the battery bay, which will be the correct size for a standard SIM card.

I cant put inspiron 1525 back together


It could be that you have not insert the memory sticks in correctly this can result in not screen.
1. check to see if you have the memory sticks seated in their slots correctly.
2. remove the hard drive and re - insert it into the hard drive slot.

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.

Are the memory slots colour coded for a reason


mostly to signify bays.... ie.. bay 1 and bay 2, with each bay having a certain number of slots depending on motherboard. if you have more then one stick of memory you need to put one in bay 1 slot 1, and the other in bay 2 slot 1,... 4 sticks of memory (all the same gb) 2 sticks in bay 1, slot 1&2... 2 sticks in bay 2, slots 1&2.. and so forth

The other memory slot is under the keyboard. Below is the service manual that has the full disassembly instructions for thelaptop. You can see the memory module installation on page 83. Just follow the guide on keyboard removal, the slot will be visible when the keyboard is removed.

Inspiron 2200 Memory Module not recognised


Are you sure its the correct speed/type of RAM? According to Google your laptop takes PC2700 DDR RAM, ensure you are using this in both slots to avoid problems. If you have it fully inserted into the slot and nothing happens when you swtich it on then the laptop doesnt like that type of RAM and you'll need to change it.

Is there another memory slot under the keyboard?


how to check the Ram slot location
1) most laptop have two slots at back, so no other slot under the keyboard
2) some laptop has onboard Ram(on the surface of motherboard) ,if you see one slot at back so no any slot under the keyboard
3) if the laptop no any slot at back it should be one or two slot under the keyboard
your laptop no ram slot under the keyboard
hope it help you to improve your idea

Dell Inspiron 600m not starting up!


I had this same problem with my 600m laptop.  How many times do the lights flash, before they stop flashing?

Cause: There is a physical problem with the computer that it is detecting at startup diagnostics.

Solution:
You should have two pieces of RAM installed. Carefully, remove the memory slot cover.  Swap the 2 pieces of memory you have in there (please follow memory installation and removal for laptops to the letter, by never touching any of the electronic contacts and handling the memory from its sides). Make sure, they sit in the slot properly (to the best you can see). Then, place back the memory cover, very carefully, and screw in.  If you see the memory door cover not closing properly, the RAM might be improperly inserted.  Please go back to the swapping of RAM step. :)  

If this didn't work, 1 of the 2 RAM's you have are no longer functioning properly. Please follow the steps to openning the memory door again and remove RAM in "B" slot first.  Then close it and try to start the computer.

If it still doing the same light flashes, open the memory door and remove RAM in slot "A".  then place the RAM you removed from slot "B" into slot "A".  Then start the computer again.

SYSTEM DOESN'T RECOGNIZE NEW MEMORY MODULE


Memory modules must be the correct type and speed, and be within the specifications for the laptop. Just because it fits in the slot doesn't mean it will work.

The Dell inspiron B130 has 2 slots. Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot. if you tried to insert a 2GB module, it will not work.

If the module is within these parameters, remove and re-seat the memory, and try swapping the modules from one slot to the other. It may be a bad slot.
