I just bought an Acer Travelmate 5720G and simultaneously order additional memory.
Unlike earlier models I owned it seems I have to remove the entire bottom panel and not just a small, easy access panel for the memory.
1. Please confirm this
2. Please tell me how to remove the panel at the bottom correctly - I undid all the screws I can see - do not want to remove the brand-new, middle, rubber foot to check for another screw under it - one side comes open easily, other side sticks and I do not want to use force.

Re: MEMORY UPGRADE ON ACER TRAVELMATE 5720G
Acer's support isn't the best. IMHO But go to their support site anyway and look up your laptops manual (there should be instructions on upgrading your RAM there). I did find that your machine will accept up to 4GB of RAM 2 X 2GB sticks. There should be a door or port (for easy user RAM upgrading) that is being overlooked, but again it is an Acer. Good luck.

According to your describe, your slow TravelMate laptop can caused by various hidden Windows errors. Those problems firstly cause your Acer slow, and then freeze up occasionally. One day crash all of a sudden! To quickly fix the problem, see resolution here: http://www.speedupacer.com/ Should help you out, good luck!
Your particular model of laptop will allow up to 2GB of memory. Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.
As for the hard drive, I believe the standard 2.5" drive is compatible in any size you'd prefer.
