First thin you have to remember is if you want to have to memories in parallel...Then the new one should be of the same size and frequency(ex:133Mhz,533Mhz..etc.,)Then folow these steps:

  1. Turn off the computer and remove all power cords from the computer system.
  2. Locate the panel used for access to the memory modules. This is generally located on the bottom of the laptop computer. Refer to your laptop instruction manuals for locating the panel.
  3. Remove any screws that the panel in place and place somewhere safe to prevent losing it.
  4. Remove the panel from the laptop and set aside.
  5. If replacing or upgrading an existing memory module, remove the memory modules by undoing and module clamps and gently lifting the edge of the module to a 45-degree angle and then pulling the module out of the slot.
  6. Align the notch of the memory module with that of the memory slot and gently insert the module into the slot at a 45-degree angle.
  7. Once all the pins are in the slot, gently rotate the module down flat until the clamps lock into the module into place.
  8. Replace the memory access panel onto the laptop computer.
  9. Replace any screws or fasteners that hold the panel in place.
  10. Replace the power cord and power up your computer system.

There is normally atleast 3 panels underneath held in with screws, and there is usually a small picure on the panel to tell you what is underneath

Break it off..........

In order to take the Base Enclosure (Bottom Cover) off, you would have to break it off.

The Acer Aspire 5000 series of Notebook PC's, disassembles from the Top down. When you are done you are looking at an empty Base Enclosure,

You have to;
Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.
Remove the Harddrive Compartment Cover, Harddrive, Memory Compartment Cover, Ram Memory, Wireless Module, Wireless Antenna wires out of laptop body, Optical Disk Drive, (DVD drive), Display Assembly, (LCD Module), Keyboard Cover, Keyboard, Palm Rest Cover, Motherboard, and so on..........

Then you have the Base Enclosure. (Bottom Cover)

WEAR an ESD wrist strap, and have it's alligator clip attached to a good ground source.

Acer Aspire 5000 series of Notebook PC > Service Manual (Free),

Go to the paragraph that starts with Aspire 1200. (1200 in Blue)
Drop down to the 6th line (4920G), scroll across; and click on the blue -> 5000

Laptops usually have the graphics chip built-in on the motherboard and the video RAM is shared RAM (uses part of the main system RAM).
Try reseating the RAM modules and if it still does not work then take the RAM to your friendly computer repair shop to test the RAM.for you.

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.

Have an acer 5315 model icl50 and want to add 1 gb memory, is there a way to know the exact match for memory module without opening back cover

Hello there!

You would most likely look for a DDR2 667MHz PC2-5300 RAM Memory Module.BTW, it should be a 200-pin Non-parity un-buffered & precisely 1.8volts.

Hope this helps.

Memory installation instructions

The memory cover is on the bottom of the laptop it is held in place with a screw or/screws, and may or may not have small holding tabs which keep the cover in place. when you remove the screw pop the cover off the bottom of the laptop and you will find your memory located there. BPCS

I can't download music

What matter here is not the brand of laptop or pc you have. What you've just encountered is the compatibility of its software on your OS and to other Media software. so you should decide which is more convenient for you to use then install it, but be very careful, make sure that your OS will support it, otherwise you are just installing a trouble on your pc or laptops.
