Question about Acer Aspire L100 PC Desktop
Does anyone have any informaion on how to disassenmle the Acer L100 to access the memory slots?
I just attempted this, and I must say that there are many things about the other solutions that just plain wrong. Here is my step-by-step:

I, too, wanted to upgrade my Aspire L100 with more RAM. However, when I opened the cover to this very small case, I was couldn't find any obvious access to the RAM slots. I found the above solutions helpful, but not detailed enough. I called the Acer tech support folks who informed me that "they don't do this sort of thing", so I guess "Guest" got a nicer tech person than I did. So, I crossed my fingers and proceeded.
Actually, its not that tough. After the cover is removed, locate a screw that is holding down the inner case to the base near the drives in the back (looks like a flange). Do not remove any other screws, eg, the cooling fans. Once the screw is removed, apply upward pressure to the plastic handle on the inner case and the inner case will lift up. Remove the two connections (both are black, one larger than the other) from the drive. In appying upward pressure by pulling on the plastic handle, the front bezel will start to separate from the case. Slide a common screwdriver into the slight cracks that have been opened on the sides and apply gentle twisting motion to loosen the bezel from the case. Once the bezel has been taken off the case (leave the wires from the insides to the bezel intact), lift the inner case up and out. The memory slots are located near the front, one on top of the other. Using gentle outward pressure, loosen the RAM chips and lift up and out. Replace with the upgrade RAM and snap into place.
To reassemble, relocate the inner case into its previous position, first reconnecting the cables, then replacing the screw. Snap the bezel back into place and you are finished.
Hope this helps.

Phone Acer's toll free tech support phone line when you are ready to perform the upgrade. One of their techs talked me thru the procedure when I made a dry run for a memory upgrade. There's actually two screws, one in back and one internal in the center rear of the unit holding the drive assemblies in place. You also have to remove the front bezel and disconnect the drive cables to remove the drive assembly before you can get at the SODIMMs to replace them.
Word of warning. Acer ships the unit with two 512 Meg SODIMMs so you'll be stuck with those extra parts if you plan to upgrade to 2 Gigs. You'll also need DDR2-533 PC 4200 SODIMM RAM or better to perform the upgrade...
