DDR2 upgrade where is the DDr2 memory located on a Medion MIM2120 laptop? Is it easy to upgrade?

    I want to upgrade a Medion MIM2120 memory from 216Mb to 1Gb but thought I might have to get access by taking bottom off computer.

    Also not sure where exactly the memory is situated - I have heard under the hard drive.

    Has anyone found an easy way to do the job?

On the bottom of the Laptop are two covers held on with screws - the smaller one is the hard drive - the larger one covers the processor fan, wireless card and memory

Turn off the laptop, take out the battery, touch something metal attached to your house (cooker, radiator, etc) to ground yourself and stop any static discharge blowing your computer into oblivion and unscrew the 7screws on the larger panel. Place them in a pot!! Gently ease the plate up using the thumb hole - DO NOT POKE ANYTHING UNDER THE EDGE TO LIFT IT - you might damage something!!

The memory on my laptop was hidden under a thin sheet of black plastic at the front edge of the laptop. Hold back the plastic and use your thumbs to move the two silver lugs to the side - the memory will pop up and if you only have one memory card in place you will see the slot for the second one. Before you touch the new memory out of the packet touch the radiator again (I use to build satellites so I'm paranoid about static!!).

Place the memory into the slot (it will only fit one way round and then gently ease it flat - the lugs will automatically engage - do the same with the second slot. Lower the plastic sheet, replace the cover and fasten the screws - not too tightly!!

Replace the battery, turn on the laptop, and if it doesn't work then I accept no responsibility whatsoever - it worked with mine!!

I'm not familiar with this specific laptop, but it should be the same as almost all laptops. On the bottom there will be a cover connected to the rest of the case with a screw, when you remove it you should be able to add\remove RAM modules. It's not too complex, but it depends on how technically versed you are.

I have Acer laptop Aspire 5570z module Zr1 with memory 1GB I want to increase memory 2GB or 3GB Is it possible or not What will be the expenditure?


Your laptop's RAM is upgradeable to up to 4 GB using two DDR2 533/667 MHz SODIMM modules.

So your upgrade options here are:
1. Buy a 1 GB DDR2 533/667 MHz SODIMM module & install it to get a total RAM of 2 GB (Price around US$ 25).
2. Buy a 2 GB DDR2 533/667 MHz SODIMM module & install it to get a total RAM of 3 GB (Price around US$ 45).

How do I fit wireless card into medion mim2120 laptop?


I assume you mean "wi-fi" wireless access. The easy solution if wireless networking wasn't built in is to use a USB wireless adapter that simply plugs in to any USB connector on the laptop. These adaptors are available at retailers where you can buy computers as well as from many online sources. The adapter will come with any software and installation instructions you need.

Please take a moment to give this solution a fixya rating if it has been what you needed, and thanks for asking here!

Medion mim2120 Wireless Problems


I had similar problem with Medion WIN 2140. The harddrive crashed, I bought a new drive and had to reinstall Windows from scratch since I had neither a backup or burned the reinstallation CD's. First I installed Windows7 and every driver/application/BIOS available from Medion's download site. At first my WIFI worked OK but somtime during the process og BIOS/driverupdate my WIFI antenna turned off. The antenna can be turned on/off with a easy access button (touchpad to the right of powerbutton) but WIFI button dows not work.

Medion's danish supporters told me that Windows7 is unsupported. So I had to reinstall using Vista. Still not able to turn on WIFI. I'm pretty sure that BIOS prior to version 1.0K (dated 06.01.2010) had a "ON" possibility but is now limited to "OFF" og "LAST STATE".

Medion support wouldn't og couldn't provide me a previous version of the BIOS. In fact Medion DK's support doesn't seem to know anything about their products.

However I have found the solution myself. Launch Manager application is needed for Easy Access buttons to work. Current version 1.5.0.5 of the application is faulty. In registry i found that pressed keys call the file fn.exe, this file is not a part of the OS, Launch Manager or any other Medion driver/application.

I googled for and found the prevoius version 1.4.9 of Launch Manager. This version works without any problems on both Vista and Windows7.
http://www1.medion.de/downloads/?op=search&lang=au&type=TEXT&Param=

I wrote to Medion support to replace the faulty application on their support site. But with my current Medion experience i daught they will do anything about it. So instead I post this reply to help others.

Updates not installing


I have found, depending on the update, that downloading them manually to your desktop, then installing them from there usally does the trick. Just write down the KB number of the update and go to http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/Search.aspx and download.

Remove the large panel (7 screws) on the base of the machine.
The memory is situated under a black flexible plastic cover about 75 x 30 mm - amost directly below the earphone and mousepad area.

Memory is held in position by clips at each side - press them outwards and memory card will pop-up.

A second card can be fitted below and slightly higher than the first.

I have just fitted IGb and will probably put in another (max 2GB), - cost about £15.

Hope this is of use.

Mim2120 extra memory


First, you are talking about storage space not memory. Make sure to make that distinction when posting for help so we know what to help you with.

How much space do you have total? To check the size and free space do this:
  1. Click on the Start button located in the lower left corner of the Taskbar.
  2. In the menu that pops up, click on My Computer to open the window.
  3. Single click on the Local Disk (C:). You will see the size of the hard drive at the bottom of the blue bar on the left of the window.
  4. If you do not see it, then click on Details. you will see how big the hard drive is under Total Size in GB and how much of that space is unused (Free Space)/li>

You may not be able to free up a lot of space - it may be better to upgrade to a bigger hard drive. Most computer stores can also copy your old drive to the new one for you so you dont have to reinstall windows.
