    Can't find it under the keyboard but I only took off the front (hand rest) portion. Should I actually remove the keyboard its self?

The computer has two memory expansion slots—Slot A and
Slot B. You can install one or two memory modules.

1 Shut down your computer completely using the Shut Down
command.

2 Unplug the computer.
CAUTION: Installing a memory module with the computer’s
power on may damage the computer, the module, or both.

3 Close the display panel and remove any cables you may have
connected.

4 Turn the computer upside down.

5 Locate and remove the screws that hold the cover plate in
place, then remove the cover from the bay.

Removing the memory module cover
CAUTION: Static electricity can damage the memory module.
Before you handle the module, touch a grounded metal
surface to discharge any static electricity you may have built
up.

To avoid damaging the memory module, be careful not to
touch its pin connector on the side you insert into the
computer.

6 Remove the new memory module from its antistatic
packaging.

7 Insert the memory module in the slot and gently press it down
into place.

The clips on either side of the module will click to secure the
module.

8 Replace the cover plate and the screws.

9 Turn the computer over and restart it.

When you turn on the computer, it automatically recognizes
the additional memory.

Removing a memory module

1 Complete steps 1–6 in “Installing a memory module” to shut
down the computer and open the memory module cover.
2 Pull the clips away from the memory module.
The memory module pops partially out of the slot.

    sometimes toshiba will put RAM underneath the keyboard itself, but it is true, most have an access door on the bottom, if yours doesn't, it is usually under the keyboard, I have replaced RAM in an "Off-Brand" Laptop, and had to remove the whole Motherboard, On yours if this is right, it is under the cover right beside the battery, (remove Battery and power) then undo the two retaining clips on either side by seperating both slightly, the RAM should pop up, reinsert in reverse order. Here is the picture.

    I hope this is worth a fixya rating to you, if so, please give a fixya rating.
