There is, you need to remove all the screws from the largest plate on the back then find the small indent on the edge of the plate and lift up. It will take a little bit of force but you don't want to overdo it.

There are small locking tabs all the way around the plate so it does take a bit of force but as the first few release it will get easier to lift out.

You can upgrade it to 2GB (MAX) if icon_detail.gifMemory Type: DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 2GB

Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.

Hope this helps.

I would like to add memory to my acer 5315 notebook. I have taken the panel off the back, but I don't know where to put the new RAM in. I can only find how to replace memory, not to add more.


The ram location is right where you are looking. There are two memory slots available for ram. They are staggered one on top of the other. Release the side pins and the module will pop up at a 45 degree angle . Pull the module out in the direction and replace at that angle, then push the module down in place. You may only have one memory slot filled at this time, Therefore there would be an empty slot to fill.

I have a ACEer 5315 model no ICL50 running Windows Vista. To say Vista is **** is an understatement. I want to switch to Windows 7 but guess I will need a lot more RAM for this. Can I upgrade Ram on this...


Hi,
I recommend that you switch to Windows 7 without upgrading your RAM. Windows 7 is a lot faster, better and uses less RAM than Vista. Recommended RAM for running Windows 7 is 1GB but I have installed them on a Centrino 1.5GHz with 768Mb of RAM and they run perfectly.
So make the upgrade to Windows 7 anyway and if you feel that you need more power then you can get more RAM.
Also, download Windows 7 upgrade advisor to check if your pc is compatible. Download upgrade advisor here.

I just bought an acer one laptop and 2g ram. i'm trying to install the ram and people told me that acer one ram card is on monther board. Is that correct?Do I have to open up the laptop to install the ram...


Yes, usually PC's would have a sizable RAM inserted into one of the slots, usually (lately) 2GB or above, while the other would be available for owners to upgrade their RAM size to 1GB or 2GB to suit their purpose.
You will have to open up the laptop with a strong yet small star screw driver to remove the screws. Depending on the machine you got, the spare RAM slot would most likely be underneath laptop, meaning you close and turn it upside down to see a engraved shape of a chip to indicate the location of the spare RAM slot.

Check with your brand website to find out more useful info for your laptop model.

I want to upgrade my hard drive.


If you have 50% or more disk space free then you may not need a larger hard disk at this time. If you have 512Mb of RAM, you can get better performance with 1Gb or better still 2Gb of RAM if your Acer can support more than 1Gb of RAM.

Ram Memory


I did this 2 days ago on my gf's aspire 5315-2153 (walmart special $348). the underside panel has four tiny screws which must be removed and then the fun begins. The plastic panel is large and doesn't want to be removed. After 20 minutes of cursing, i was able to get it out with two hands and a small screwdriver. The plastic panel has about 7-8 tabs which also hold it in place. The original two memory modules must be removed and the two new ones installed in their place. i bought crucial memory from newegg.com (CT2KIT12864AC667) for $17 delivered (took a week to get) which was much cheaper than buying it direct from crucial.com Save the old memory modules just in case you have a problem with the new ones. After putting them in, I restarted the computer and it booted up fine. No BIOS changes or any of that were necessary. So for $17 and about 30 minutes, this lappy is now running strong with 2gb instead of 1gb. Initial impression is that it boots up faster and shuts down faster but that is about it in terms of improvement!!!
