How to change the RAM and Memory of my Philips x200 laptop

I own an X200 philips notebook (extendable neck). Normally you would just look at the back and there would be a specific area to unscrew and change the RAM or memory. But mine, the whole back is covered. although there are screws but, if you try and undo them it will expose the whole back and I'm just terrified to do it. I'm not a computer tech person. can someone help. Thanks

The RAM is most likely under the keyboard then.

    No, above the keyboard there is usually a plastic cover that snaps off uncovering two or three screws for the keyboard. It is sometimes held on by a few screws from the bottom.

    You will not be able to take the bottom off without taking it all apart first, the bottom is the last piece to come out.

After lookng at the base specifacation of this laptop, even if it was upgraded the laptop would not support windows 7. Windows XP would be the latest OS you could install.

I upgraded the RAM on Lenovo X200 (745533A) from factory 2GB PC3-8500 to 4GB PC3-8500. Checked the BIOS and recognized the new 4GB memory. The trouble is, after upgrading the RAM, the WIFI stopped working...

Possibly the new sticks are defective. Try this: disable the wireless devices before removing the old memory. Install the new memory and reactivate the wireless devices. Another possibility: mislabeled memory. Can you check the new sticks in another machine? Check online and see if your machine has a BIOS update. If so, you may have to do it. Take all of the precautions when doing this. If youre not comfortable doing a BIOS update, get a service tech involved. Improperly done, youll render your machine inoperable.

Philips X200 laptop crashes regularly.

Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Tableau 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";} I had something close to that and I solve the problem by replacing the motherboard but before you think of it, you can try different things.
Maybe some parts are shorted the microprocessor

So to start unplug the dvd player, the keyboard, mousepad, the screen.
If you ear an alarm, it’s mean the motherboard work so far.

Plug the screen back and try to restart and so on.
If it stop working you know what part to replace.

But if you stuck only with the screen on, it might still be the motherboard or microprocessor.
To open it, download the service manual :
