In addition to the slider, you will see a small slider that has a picture of a lock on it. You need to slide it to the unlocked position before trying to release the battery.
As I recall, there are 2 panels on the bottom of the machine. One should have a graphic representation of memory, but every manufacturer seems to use a different picture. Best solution--open one and if that's not it, try another! You can't hurt anything.

How can i get to both memory slots so i can upgrade to 2GB of Ram? Thanks


Your laptop has two memory slots. One of the memory slots (external) can be easily accessed if you remove the cover on the bottom of the laptop.

The second (internal) memory slot is located under the keyboard.

Keyboard removal procedure:
1. Unplug the AC adapter and remove the battery.
2. Remove two screws securing the keyboard on the bottom of the laptop. These screws are marked with a small keyboard symbol.
3. Release 4 keyboard retention tabs located on the left side from f1, f5, f9 and delete keys.
4. Lift up the keyboard and place it upside down on the palm rest.
5. Unlock the keyboard cable connector on the motherboard.
6. Remove and replace the keyboard.

Hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

How do you remove the battery?


There's usually a small latch on the underside of the laptop marked with a small battery icon. Push the latch to the side and the battery should pop out enough for you to grab a corner of it. Sometimes there are two latches, in that case they will be numbered for the proper order to trip the latches to remove the battery.

Good luck!!
