Question about Computers & Internet
I just purchased said laptop and I want to increase the ram from 1gig to 2 gigs. How do you get to the ram slots in this laptop. I know where they are but I took the screws out of the panel underneath the computer but the panel won't come loose. What is holding it?
my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi everybody! I finally managed to open the back of the computer to put in more RAM :-) . It is several tiny hooks that is holding it from coming loose. You have to find these and bend with a knife or something to get it off. I was thinking of uploading a picture where I marked out where all the hooks were. But now when I look at the picture, my mobile-camera didn't really caught all the hooks so I can spot them directly on the picture :-P Anyway, it is possible to open the cover :-) It is quite strenuous though.

The memory compartment panel is insanely hard to get off. As per the pic from simphax, start to leverage the panel at the indicated starting point (I used a flat panel screwdriver) and start to work around clockwise and anti-clockwise to 'pop' the other anchor points (they're all the way around) until you finally reach the finish point in the picture. It feels like you're going to snap something as you working through it (an you probably will if you dont take it in small bites)
