Normally in laptops, there "might" be one screw under the computer about in the middle of the keyboard. It is normally not hidden anywhere. If there is a little compartment with a cover under the computer, you might remove that and see if there is a screw there.
Otherwise, the keyboard is either held in place by clips or, alternatively, it has screws in the top under the plastic bezel that is on top of the computer just below the screen. You'll have to look carefully at the palm rest to see if there is a separate piece that lifts up to expose the top of the keyboard.

How can i get to both memory slots so i can upgrade to 2GB of Ram? Thanks


Your laptop has two memory slots. One of the memory slots (external) can be easily accessed if you remove the cover on the bottom of the laptop.

The second (internal) memory slot is located under the keyboard.

Keyboard removal procedure:
1. Unplug the AC adapter and remove the battery.
2. Remove two screws securing the keyboard on the bottom of the laptop. These screws are marked with a small keyboard symbol.
3. Release 4 keyboard retention tabs located on the left side from f1, f5, f9 and delete keys.
4. Lift up the keyboard and place it upside down on the palm rest.
5. Unlock the keyboard cable connector on the motherboard.
6. Remove and replace the keyboard.

Hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have compaq laptop Armada E500 and I want to upgrade my laptops ram And i dont found memory slot


Ok this laptop only takes SDram
The location of the ram is under the keyboard
Here's the instructions on how to get to it.
First shut down the laptop and disconnect any cables or whatever that is connected to it.
Then turn the computer over there is a security screw there remove that by turning counter clockwise.
Then take a paper clip and put it into the 4 keyboard releases which should be
1. right of the ESC key
2. between the F4 and F5 key
3.between the F8 and F9 key
4. right of the F12 key
Now you can lift the keyboard by tilting it up closest to the LCD towards you.
You will see a empty memmory slot which should be 1.
Put it in at a 45 degree angle and push down gently till it snaps in place.
Now you just reverse the way you took it apart and you should be all set
Happy Holidays

Lindie_c

Hi, a lot of these older laptops had their memory installed below the keyboard as is true for yours.

If you download this manual it will show you how to lift the keyboard and install additional memory.
