The 2 memory slots are in the same location. The memory modules essentiall lie on top of each other. If you open the back cover you will see 2 slots in which you insert the memory modules. They're referred to as slot Aand slot B.

Hi, please, answer following questions I have referring to an ACER TravelMate 333T notebook: 1. Where is the 2nd RAM socket located? 2. Where is the C-MOS battery placed? Thank you!


The most likley place for the second ram socket, as with most laptops, is under the keyboard. You can confirm this by going to acers website and downloading the technical manul for this laptop. The CMOS battery would be underneath the board, so replacing it would me completley disassembling the enitire laptop.

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.

Adding computer memory


The only thing you could do is put in a 256MB module in the slot that you have access to. Only one socket is user upgradable. The second socket is only upgradable by a Dell service center. They would have to install a second 256 module to get you to the 512MB max.

You remove the access cover which is where the power button is right under the screen by sliding it to the left until it comes off.Then you push the keyboard up to the back of the laptop until it will lift up exposing another cover. You remove the second cover and that is where the ram is located.Ram is under the keyboard.

Laptop screen flickers


It is possible that a memory module within a stick of RAM could be bad, however, I'd suggest re-seating the RAM sticks and try again. Re-seating the RAM is as simple as:
  1. Unplug the laptop from the AC Adapter, if connected.
  2. Shut down the computer
  3. Remove the battery
  4. Find where the ram is (either under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop [if it's an HP or Dell, it's on the bottom; if it's a Toshiba, Acer or a smaller-type of brand, it's typically under the keyboard])
  5. Slide the RAM-seating pin/brace over which will allow you to pull the RAM out.
  6. Ensure that the RAM's connection (the part that goes into the RAM socket) is clean and looks good.
  7. Gently push the ram into the slot and push it down for the brackets to snap over the edges of the RAM.


Hope this help!

Asus g2p max ram


You got two memory ports. One on the bottom of the unit.The second one is on top of your Notebook. To reach it you have to remove the keyboard. There are three small points on the top of the keyboard to unlock it. Under the keyboard you will find a metal protector with one screw which protects the second ram...
By the way: The Bios only recognizes up to 2 of ram.

Toshiba m55-s135 memory install


Not all laptops have spots for two sticks of ram. Double check the specs but the slots should have been in the same spot.

IBM ThinkPad T40 2GB Max RAM


The T40 has two ram slots, you can put a 1g chip in each totaling 2g. If the chip will remove, then it is changeable. Vista needs a minimum of 256 to run, so, when you change BOTH chips to equal 2g it will probably read 1.744g, or it may read the full 2g. If it only reads 1g, then the second slot under keyboard may have malfunctioned. It could also be that the 256 chip is bad and your really only running 512 now. With all that said, in order to achieve 2g, you will need to put a 1g chip in each slot.
