Most likely under the keyboard. If you flip the laptop over you may see some letters either imprinted or stamped into the case near holes. In the holes are screws holding the top to the bottom. If any have K by them those will be holding the keyboard in place. Remove them then carefully flip the laptop over and open the lid. You should be able to easily remove the keyboard and add another stick of memory in the open slot.

You will have to remove a cover on the bottom of the laptop where the ram is located ...most laptops have 2 slots for ram , but there are some that only have one slot ...if you google the model # of the laptop then you should be able to find out how many slots your laptop has and the total amount of ram that it will accept.

My computer has one long beep 2 short beeps, I put in new RAM and still does the same.

One, if I may; clean the gold plated contact pins with a pencil eraser, use air to remove the eraser dust. THEN try again before buying new Ram Memory.

(You are Following Anti-Static Precautions, right?)

Unplug the computer from power. Press the Power On button in, and hold for a count of 10 seconds. Let go.
Do this procedure two more times.

Plug the computer back into power.

What this does is clear CMOS Error Codes, and resets BIOS Setup back to the factory default settings.
We are just trying to clear CMOS Error Codes.

WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Still no?
'Slap' BIOS around a little bit.
Hold the Power On button in for a count of 10 seconds, or until computer turns off.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer back on.

I had to do this 3 times, one time, in order to get BIOS to recognize the new Ram Memory.

A) Ram Memory HAS to be in Slot 1. (DIMM 1)
That is the ram memory slot the Processor reads first.

Don't care about the other Ram Memory modules at the minute.
Just want to make sure a module is in Slot 1.

B) Are you SURE you have the correct Ram Memory?
There is a TOTAL amount for the motherboard, and EACH ram memory slot has a Maximum amount also.

Install in Slot 1 first. Try computer. If it works, then install ram memory in other ram memory slots.

No didn't work?
Then install in Slot 2.

You may find one of the ram memory slots is bad.

Ram not working

Step 1:
A memory slot is a slot in your motherboard where you place your RAM (Random Access Memory) card. In layman's terms, the RAM is the "temporary memory" that the computer utilizes whenever it is turned on. If the computer cannot detect a RAM card installed in one of your memory slots, you have to troubleshoot the problem immediately.
Ensure that the problem is with the RAM slot and not the memory card. Turn off the computer, unplug all devices connected into the ports of your computer and open the computer casing. Refer to the manual of the computer to know the specific steps to follow in opening the computer casing. Remove the memory card from the RAM slot. To do this, unlock the card using both hands. Pull the card away from the slot to remove. Inspect the RAM card for any apparent physical damages. Wipe the card with a clean cloth to remove dust. Also wipe the memory slot in your motherboard. Place the RAM card back into the memory slot. Press the card into the slot until it clicks into place. Close the computer casing, connect the cables back into their respective slots and turn on the computer. Turn on the computer and see if the memory is detected. If the computer does not boot up, the RAM card is not detected by the computer. Assuming that you have two memory cards installed in the computer and the computer boots up, check if the second memory card is detected by the computer. Click "Start," right-click "Computer" and then "Properties." Under "System," check the amount of "Installed Memory (RAM)." If the RAM is not detected, the RAM slot or the RAM card itself may be malfunctioning. Place the RAM card into another memory slot in your motherboard and see if the card is detected. If it is detected, the other memory slot is malfunctioning. Do not install any RAM card into it to avoid further damage. If it is not detected, the RAM card may be malfunctioning. Insert another RAM card into the slot. If the RAM card is detected, the slot is malfunctioning.

Dell Inspiron B130- Memory installation in second slot

RAM modules in laptops are secured by spring clips on both sides of the RAM module.
To release the RAM module press the clips away from the RAM module and the RAM module will pop up at an angle. You can then pull the RAM module away from the memory slot.
Insert the RAM module in the slot, push it into th slot and then press the RAM module down until the clips on the side lock onto the RAM module.

You may be using the wrong parity or out Latency ram. if they are not similar in latency they will not work in tandem. Make sure both of the ram's are the same MHZ and CS latency. Also, you may have bad ram as well. Try using the new ram first to see if the computer posts, if it does, input the old ram in the second slot, and if that doesnt work, the ram is not compatible with each other.

Hi,
Inspect the memory slot carefully. If there are are bent pins in the slot , you can probably align them with a pointed tip. Otherwise the best option would to replace the motherboard. Because after the process RAM is the fastest component in the computer. Out of experience in repairing the motherboards ,i recommend to replace the motherboard.

Thanks Fixya

MEMORY/RAM problem, system won't acknowledge both slots of memory

You might have on-board VGA card which take 8 Mb (shared) in memory taken from extended memory card.
My suggestion, use exactly similar memory card ( same PC clock, either 400/533/667/etc. If this won't work, try to clean the memory slots with brush.

these different ram slots have different bus speed so they really don't work if you are using them both at once.

I can't find the second ram slot

Lots of laptops have the second slot under the keyboard. If you are adventurous take the keyboard off and look in there.

Upgraded memory in my ibm t 30 laptop

You have 2 sticks of RAM correct? One that came with the system and one that you bought. You also have to slots but it appears one may not be working, however, nothing is impossible but that is very rare it is normally the RAM itself and not the slot. Take both pieces out, put the new ram in the first slot and boot up. If the system will not boot up then it is the RAM because you already know that that slot is good. However, you cannot do the same thing with the second slot, because your motherboard looks for RAM in the first slot and if there is none then it stops boot. Conclusion: Put new RAM in first, slot if it works then second slot is bad, if it does not work, then RAM is bad...

Hope this helps. Please vote accordingly and if you have any more questions I will be glad to research and answer them for you...FixYa
