Medion MD41060 Memory Installation

I want to install memory in the 2nd of 2 memory banks on this laptop, The 2nd memory bank is located under the keyboard I am told and that there are three tabs at the top of the keyboard securing it in position. I have been unable to locate these and cannot release the keyboard. Has anyone any ideas please?

    Thanks for the suggestion Chandra, unfortunately, that isn't the solution. One compartment is at the back with 1 memory bank, but according to Medion, the other is under the keyboard but cannot see where to release it!

    Thanks

    Thanks Roydart, I've a sneaking feeling you are right about the access to the 2nd bank of memory. Sliding that panel to the left would make sense (taking care because the plastic looks hard and brittle as you say). I don't have the laptop in front of me, buy when I do, I'll give it a whirl. Thanks for your help

I have a medion 41060 and the way I accessed the memory under the keyboard was as follows: Remove the battery and power supply lead for safety, slide the panel with the start button and hot buttons above the keyboard to the left very carefully. As it is plastic and very delicate it should not be forced. Under this panel are three black screws which hold the keyboard in place. Remove the screws and lift the keyboard from the top edge. The memory is below a dished panel held by three screws. You might aswell suck out the dust from your cooler fan before you replace the keyboard. Everything goes back in reverse order, but be very careful with the top panel as the lugs to it are very delicate.
I hope that I have helped,
Roydart

Hey, as far as my knowledge is concerned, the battery compartment is on the backside of laptop and there is a symbol on that compartment. you just need a screw driver to open two screws and reach the RAM compartment.
Try that you will fixup your problem.

How to install memory


Unplug the laptop from the power supply. Remove the battery. Locate your user manual (hard copy or printed from the internet for your laptop's make and model). Now, open the bottom of the laptop, locate the memory bank and follow instructions for memory installation provided by your laptop manufacturer in the user manual.

Wen i turn on my laptop it makes 3 beep sounds then doesnt start up what can i do?


2 Short Beeps Your computer has memory problems. First check video. If video is working, you'll see an error message. If not, you have a parity error in your first 64K of memory. First check your SIMM's. Reseat them and reboot. If this doesn't do it, the memory chips may be bad. You can try switching the first and second banks memory chips. First banks are the memory banks that your CPU finds its first 64K of base memory in. You'll need to consult your manual to see which bank is first. If all your memory tests good, you probably need to buy another motherboard. 3 Short Beeps Basically the same thing as 2 beeps. Follow that diagnosis above.

Hi everyone! I was just wondering if it's possible to have a 512MB RAM and a 1GB RAM in my laptop (Acer Aspire 3634WLMi) at the same time or if you have to have two of the same... Thanks for your help! :-)


Hi,

The laptop support 2GB of ram. There are 2 banks for ram each supporting 1GB each.

Of course if you want to install 512MB in there you can although having matched memory is always a good thing. For example 2 sticks running at 400MHz (PC3200).


Regards.

I have a vgn-b3vp (pcg-5b1m) sony laptop, can i upgrade the memory if it has 512 of none-removable memory and only 1 bank.


Yes, you can use the 1 bank and get higher graded memory, another 512 in the 1 bank would make 1gig, you can probable get as much as 2 gig in the bank to make a total of 2.5 gigs by buying a 2 gig memory stick.

Where are the two memory banks? I want to upgrade the installed memory...


If they are not inside of a small hatch on the bottom of the laptop, then they are under the keyboard.
