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.

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.

Wheres the ram?


RAM modules must be installed in special locations on the motherboard called Sockets. These memory sockets are what hold the RAM module in place and can range from 1 to 16 or more. Banks consist of a group of 1 or more sockets. A system can have 1 or more of these banks of sockets. If a system has more than 1 socket in a bank, a Kit must be purchased for that bank. A kit is simply more than one, usually 2 or 4, like RAM modules. All sockets in a bank must be filled. Typically you will see 2x512MB or 2x256MB signifying you get 2 units of 512MB RAM modules or 2 units of 256MB RAM modules, respectively.
The Toshiba Satellite A40-S270 has 2 bank(s) which have 1 socket(s) in each bank for a total of 2 memory socket(s). This means the Satellite A40-S270 can support up to 2 individual RAM modules.
Below is a visual representation of the memory bank(s) and socket(s) configuration for the Toshiba Satellite A40-S270.
socket_1.gifsocket_1.gif This graphical representation above details what the memory configuration would look like with the maximum memory installed and does not necessarily model your system memory configuration. This graphical representation is not drawn to scale and should only be used as a general reference. Please consult your system’s user manual for your actual memory configuration.

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.

I have a toshiba satellite 1900-803 - when I open up the memory compartment on the back I can only find 1 slot which I have alread used to upgrade the memory to 768 MB. Where is the 2nd slot so I can...


Maccstokie,

It is possible that the other memory slot is on the opposing board side, and already occupied by system default memory. It is also possible that the ram is also located by the wireless card port. Open each of the underside compartments and see if there is an additional memory port, Trial and error is the best approach.

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.

Step 5: Remove a memory or continuity module Continuity modules do not contain memory, but are placeholders to close the memory circuit. Use the following steps to remove a memory or continuity module:
  1. Pull out, and then press down on the holding clips that retain the memory modules. The memory modules should rise up slightly out the socket. Figure 5: Opening memory module tabs c00571682.gif
  2. Pull out the memory or continuity module (for RIMMs) and place it in a static-safe container.
Step 6: Add a memory module Use the following steps to insert a memory module into an empty socket:
  1. If RIMMs are being used, keep the following items in mind when purchasing and installing modules:
    • The memory configuration of channel A (the first two sockets) and channel B (the second two sockets) must be identical.
    • Continuity RIMMs must fill any open memory sockets.
    • When a continuity RIMM is required, it should be installed into the second socket.
  2. Align the memory module so the small notches on the lower edge line up with the raised marks in the socket. Figure 6: Memory module installation c00571683.gif 1 - DIMM (notches farther apart) 2 - RIMM (notches close together)
