    How does one get the cover off the Intel-DOT Station? There are screws that require a special type of Allen Wrench with a dimple in the middle.

    Any assembly drawing of the DOT will be useful to all.

Hi, If all you want to do is add some more RAM you probably don't really need a motherboard diagram.
Do you know what sort of RAM you need is the first thing?

Before you open the PC make sure you will not be voiding any warranty that you may have had when you purchased it.

If you are just adding more of the same kind of RAM then you will have no problems. Open the box and locate the sticks of RAM sat in their slots you won't be able to miss them. (If you haven't seen RAM befoer then do an "image" search on Google for RAM and have a look, then you will find it easily.)

Next you carefully pop the little clips back from each end of the stick that you are removing. Then gently lift away from the board.

When putting the RAM back make sure to put it around the right way so that the little luggs fit into the base of the RAM. The base of the RAM will have little gaps where the luggs fit. Carefully align the RAM with the connections keeping it straight once it is sat in the correct position you will need to press quite firmly to get it to clip in. The clips on either end will click into place as you connect the RAM stick automatically so then you will know that you have seated it right.

Once you have added what you need boot up your system before closing the box to test the new RAM in case you have not seated any of the sticks properly.

Windows will recognise the updated RAM and will adjust accordingly. You can check that it is all recognised by going through "Control Panel" or "Settings" from the "Start" button and choosing "System". Then when that window comes up, near the bottom you should see where it tells you how much RAM is on the system along with your processor speed etc.

Hope this is helpful, let me know how you go

Add ram Satellite u845


Power down your Toshiba Satellite.

Unplug it from the wall.

Turn the machine over and remove the battery.


Locate the RAM compartment cover, which is usually located somewhere in the middle of the underside, and is about 4-by-4 inches.


Unscrew the RAM cover screw with a Phillips screwdriver and set aside.

Ground yourself by touching a metal object.


This will release any static electricity built up in your body, which can harm computer chips and components.

You can also use an anti-static wristband while you are working.


Remove RAM modules if needed.

This is most likely if you are upgrading the present RAM capacity with a larger RAM chip.


Press your fingers on the clips on either side of the chip to pop it out of the socket.

Pull the chip out of the RAM compartment, holding it by the sides of the circuit board rather than on the chip.


Insert the new RAM module into the socket. Align the RAM module so that the notch lines up with the tab on the side of the socket.

Gently lower the module into the socket. Press into place with your fingers.


Replace the RAM compartment cover. Insert the screw and tighten.

Replace the battery and secure with the lock.


Plug the Toshiba Satellite laptop back in and power up the system.

The upgraded RAM should be automatically recognized.


hope this helps

How do i add a ram memory to my labtop,explain please


It depends on what model of laptop you have. Typicly there is a plastic cover that you remove from the bottom of the laptop to expose your ram dimms (spots to add ram). In some cases both spots will allready have ram in them, in this case you will need to buy higher capacity ram like a 2 or 4 gig stick. I like to order my ram from newegg.com but if you have no idea what you are doing you can take out the ram and take it to a place like best buy and tell them you need higher capacity ram like "this". They will tell you what kind of ram it is and you can either buy it from them, or go home and get it cheaper online.

Add more ram


hi-
To add ram - look on the back of the lap top. You will see some screws that are holding down a little door. There may be two of these. Remove the screws on the ram cover and remove ram cover

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Ram slots are stacked. you have to remove the top one first.
1- press the buttons on the sides of the ram chip, and then it will pop up and towards you.
2- 2- pull this ram upwards and out
3- from there, you can take out the other chip, if there is one, or you can start installing.
4- installing the new ram chips is just as easy
5- line up the slots in the chip, then push it in as far as you can without breaking it.
6- then push it down so that you hear it click on both sides, and doesn't budge.
7- Repeat using the top chip.
This should do it –
I hope it helps- please rate me – thanks

I want to add RAM, but I haven't yet found the slots. Can someone tell me where they are?


The slot will be on the bottom (the part of the laptop that sits on the desk). Remove the screw(s) that are holding the cover and you will see the existing RAM (usually a green module about 2 inches in length).

How do I add more RAM memory


It is easy to add more RAM to the laptop, the first thing you need to know is the type of memory you model uses. Your model uses DDR2@533MHz up to 2 GB RAM (2 chips 1 GB each).
PLACE THE LAPTOP UPSIDE DOWN ON A SOFT CLOTH. MAKE SURE YOU DON'T MISPLACE THE SCREWS.
1. Remove the larger cover in the back of the laptop (2 screws) ; the memory chips are under this cover.
2. Replace the chip(s) with larger capacity chip(s).
3. Put the cover back (using the 2 screws you safely removed in step 1). Thats it!

Okay.....go to www.crucial.com and figure out what RAM you need to purchase. It will tell you what you need. Then, once you get your memory, unscrew the screw on the bottom of your notebook that covers the RAM and either replace or add the new memory that you just purchased.
