Re: Ram change, how?

Hey there. Had the same problem. The memory is under the keyboard. To get to it do this.

1. There's a small hole on the Right side of the panel above the keyboard. I thought that was a microphone hole, it's not. Stick a pin, paperclip or whatever will fit into the hole and slide the panel to the Left.

2. The keyboard will now slide up and out. Be careful of the ribbon cable in the bottom right.

3. The memory is under the aluminum cover near the center. There are two screws 1 long, 1 short that will remove the cover.

Reverse the above to put it back together.

Re: Ram change, how?

Remove the cover (with buttons) above the keyboard by gently prizing it off with a small screwdriver at either end.

lift the keyboard off and the ram is hidden under a silver plate held in place with two small screws.

Asus x202e repair manual

From what I see the laptop just came out January 2013.

I don't see instructions in the User Manual about how to replace/upgrade the Harddrive, or Ram Memory.

What I do see is the Base Cover comes off to access the above.
Remove AC adapter (Charger), and Battery, turn laptop bottom side up.
Remove all screws going around the outside bottom of the Base Cover, and the one in the middle.

At least that's the way it looks to me.

It is covered under a warranty for a year, from what I read.

Why disassemble? Add more Ram Memory?
Replace broken touchscreen? No parts available yet IMHO.

Asus A53S Blue screen problem

The most important Blue Screen of Death troubleshooting step you can take is to ask yourself what you just did.
  • Startup using Last Known Good Configuration to undo recent registry and driver changes.
  • Use System Restore to undo recent system changes.
  • Roll Back device driver to version prior to your driver update.
I would suggest to use a system utility tool like Reginout to fix this problem instantly.

Can i upgrade the hardisk of my asus eee pc series laptop to a higher memory?

Most EEE PCs use 533/667 MHz DDR2 RAM via a standard SO-DIMM module, which can be swapped out. The 700 and 701SDX have RAM soldered to the motherboard.

The black model EEEPC 4G SURF (4GS-PK008), and newer white models (4GS-W010) have a removable panel on their underside that allows the user to change the RAM without fully disassembling the system. The older white models (4GS-W010) lack this access panel, and require some disassembly in order to access the RAM.[57]

The hardware supports up to 4 GB (2 GB for the 1000 series, and some of the 900 series), but the preinstalled Xandros kernel of the 700 series only supports up to 1 GB
If this helps you resolve your problem, please
consider giving a good rating and a quick thanks
or good job.It will help me as well Thank you.

What is a ram? I need more detail so I can fix my asus laptop...

Ram stands for Random access Memory. It is essentially the short term memory of your PC. Looking up the specs on your laptop or Motherboard will tell you how much and what type is useable in your machine. Looking in the control panel ay"system" will tell you how much is already installed. Installing new RAM is easy by turning off your machine, opening the bottom of your laptop or side of your tower, Ground yourself (touch something metal) and unplug the old RAM plug in the new RAM. Restart. On restart your system will recognize the new memory.

  • A Screwdriver suitable for your laptop's memory cover
Here's the tutorial that you can use to change the RAM:

Hope this will be informative.

Where is the ram positioned in the pc Asus M6000

The RAM compartment for the Asus M6000 series notebooks could be accessed by turning the notebook upside down. You will find in the middle of the down-side a cover with 2 screws. If you unscrew these 2 screws, you can access the RAM slots.
