Make and Model of Computer?

    Whilst I have never serviced that particular laptop before, most keyboard removals are based on similar CONCEPTS.

    (these are not step by step instructions)





    Power laptop off, remove battery.



    Turn laptop upside down... look for tiny phillips head screws on the bottom of the laptop with a little picture of a keyboard by them. Remove these screws and put aside for re-assembly. On occasion, these screws are under the HDD lid, under the graphics card cover or other removeable covers on the back of the computer. Also check the battery "bay" for screws marked with a little keyboard and remove them, too...



    Return laptop to normal orientation and open lid.



    Gently pry open and remove cosmetic cover at the top of the keyboard (this often covers the sides of the hinges, too)



    At this point, you may be able to move the keybord out of the way; watch out for the little ribbon cable that connects the keyboard to the mainboard or daughterboard. If keyboard still affixed with little screws (under the trim piece you just removed), remove those screws, put aside for later and tilt / jimmy keyboard up to reveal RAM socket.



    Put the RAM in there...



    Re-assemble parts and pieces.



    Here are a couple of picture instructions of SIMILAR (but not exactly the same) laptops:

    Good luck... it's not that hard.

How do you access the memory slots on an acer aspire z3731


Memory Sockets or Slots are the place where memory RAM modules are inserted in the motherboard. The Acer Aspire Z3731 has 4 (4 banks of 1) memory expansion slots. A memory bank is a group of memory expansion sockets, a bank must be completely filled with memory modules of the same size and type in order for the system to recognize and address the memory. i.e. :
2 sockets (2 banks of 1) This indicates that there are 2 memory slots. These are divided into 2 banks, and each bank consists of one memory slot. So you can add memory one piece at a time for the system to use.
3 sockets (3 banks of 1) This indicates that there are 3 memory slots. These are divided into 3 banks, and each bank consists of one memory slot. So you can add memory one piece at a time for the system to use.
4 sockets (2 banks of 2) This indicates that there are 4 memory slots. These are divided into 2 banks, and each bank consists of two memory slots. So you must add memory two pieces at a time (they must be the same size and type of memory) in order for the system to benefit from the upgrade.
8 sockets (4 banks of 2) This indicates that there are 8 memory slots. These are divided into 4 banks, and each bank consists of two memory slots. So you must add memory two pieces at a time (they must be the same size and type of memory) in order for the system to benefit from the upgrade.
12 sockets (3 banks of 4) This indicates that there are 12 memory slots. These are divided into 3 banks, and each bank consists of four memory slots. So you must add memory four pieces at a time (and they must be the same size and type of memory) in order for the system to benefit from the upgrade.

I have a Toshiba Satellite 1905-S301 that has 512mb of DDR memory currently. I have a stick of 128 that I was going to throw in there to boost performance but when I opened the compartment the there was...


There are 2 types of memory, one for laptops and one for pc.

Your additional stick seems to be for pc from what your saying.

Additional thoughts:
I'm sure you can buy sticks for laptops at walmart or whereever you bought ur laptop. Just make sure it is the same speed type. Example: yours is 512mb ddr PC 5200, you will need to find PC5200, the 512mb and up you shouldnt have to worry about. So do your research before you upgrade or you will burn your laptop.

Adding memory, new total not recognized: IBM Thinkpad R51e-1844


Ram should always be paired. Same type, speed and size in each slot. You may have 1 SIMM/DIMM/DDR that has 2 sides of chips and the other with 1 which will do exactly what you state. RAM reads across the chips simultaneously. So if you have a different one in each slot it can go bonkers and do goofy stuff on you.

How do you remove and replace dell laptop memory? (d600)


I dont know this particular model, but usually it's underneath the computer, there is one screw to remove and you can take out a door which gives you acess to the memory slots. If it's not there, you will need to remove the top cover to get there. But it's most likely a small door underneath the laptop.

Can only find one memory slot/bay for my Inspiron 1720, correct?


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

Reg ram upgradation


Each memory slot on the C555NR can support a maximum of 1GB of RAM. There are actually 2 slots, but only one is easily accessible to you. By upgrading both the primary and secondary DIMMs, you could achieve a total of 2GB of memory but you would have to remove the 512mb chip that is already installed and replace it with 1GB (+1GB in the expansion slot as well.)

If you don't plan on taking the computer to a professional to be serviced, you will probably only want to upgrade the memory in the secondary slot located under the memory cover on the underside of the computer. It can handle a 1GB SODIMM.

FYI the memory is:
200 Pin DDR2-533 PC2-4200 SODIMM

Good luck!
