So the way i see it you want to replace the memory slot that is under the keyboard (not the extra slot that is located on the back of the laptop). Best way of doing this would be following Dell's Documentation:

Go here my friend:
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/latd620/en/SM/memory.htm - the one for DIMM A

Basically 3 Major Steps:
1) You have to remove the Hinger cover (they also provide an extra link in how to remove it)
2) Remove the keyboard (once again they provide a nice guide in how to remove the keyboard)
3) Remove the actual Memory

Personally i have done a memory upgrade before WITHOUT having to remove the keyboard, but if you want to experiment removing the keyboard make sure not to loose the screws, and also when removing the connection between the keyboard and the motherboard you should see a 'blue stick' you have to pull this stick up if you want to remove the keyboard, what i usually do is that i move the right 'wall' of the blue stick so that i can pull the stick up. (a tenuous process)

I can't close tower cover


When your computer appears to slow down, one way to help increase its speed is by adding memory. You can easily purchase memory chips from various online sources or if you have a Dell Dimension and want to stick with Dell products, you can purchase additional memory chips from Dell itself. It is not difficult for a non computer person to add memory to a Dell Dimension, although sometimes, it is cheaper to purchase a new computer and then install additional memory.

Shut down your computer, turn the computer off and unplug it. Open your computer case. There will be two thumbscrews on the back of the Dell Dimension computer case that will release the cover. The side of the computer case will then slide backward and lift away from the rest of the box. Locate the slots for RAM. These are short off-white slots that are near the power supply on the motherboard. They will be slightly longer than the RAM you are about to add. There will be at least one RAM chip already in place in one of the slots. Place your new RAM chip into a blank slot gently. It does not matter which slot you use; any will work. When you press the RAM into place, be sure the notch on the chip lines up with the slot. There will be a guide on the slot to ensure that you do not insert the chip backwards. Press down on the RAM chip until it locks into place. There are two guides on the side of the slot that will snap into place on the sides of the chip to ensure the chip does not fall out. It will take a bit of pressure to make the chip snap into place, so press straight down into the motherboard to get the chip in place. Close the computer case, put the thumbscrews back where they belong and start up the computer. Your Dell Dimension will sense the new RAM, which will be available to the operating system when the computer starts up. Hope this helps.

I have a dell inspiron 545. I lost my display and the computer now beeps four times, pauses and beeps four more times. Can you tell me what happened to my computer?


This is normally a memory error. Turn off the computer, and open the side of the case. Pull and re-seat all memory chips. Turn power on, if it still beeps. Turn off power, pull all the memory chips and re-seat one only. Turn on power if it beeps againg, pull the chip out and try the other one. Repeat for all chips. If you find any that do not cause the beep issue, you have found your bad memory chip. If not, try the same one at a time memory test in a different slot on the computer. If no beeps, then its a bad slot and dont use that memory slot.

If none of this works; as unlikely as it seems you could have all bad memory chips, or a bad mother board.

3 long beeps on bootup,black screen,gateway atxeg lx3 700s po4


This is an indication that there is a memory issue. Reseat the memory in the computer and try again. If this fails and you have two or more sticks of memory, try just one in a slot at a time. Hope fully one chip will fail and you have found your bad memory chip. If all chips fail in one slot, try the other, this would incate a bad slot on the mother board.

Good luck and I hope this helps.

How to install memory on ecs G550 laptop can only see one slot with 512 MB ddr sodmmm where is the other slots to upgrade to 1GB ram


There are two memory slots which support PC2700/333 Mhz memory, maximum 1024 per slot.

ECS suggests using identical/matched pairs of chips from the same manufacturer for their units.

In most laptops there is an access panel which when removed gives you direct access to the memory chips for replacement. I couldn't find a mainboard diagram for this unit so I am unable to see if the memory slots are adjacent on the board but there is little reason they shouldn't be. You should be able to access both slots once the proper access panel is opened.

This is the website page for direct contact with ECS tech support if you have any further questions: http://www.ecsusa.com/ECSWebSite/Support/TSSRequest.aspx?CategoryID=3&MenuID=19&LanID=0

Dell Lat d620 duo: ran a full system scan yesterday as I normally do for maintenance and got the BSOD. Message: page fault in nonpaged area. Tried all options to reboot, always eventually gets to BSOD and...


Take out the memory and replace with the old one.
If you have a 32 bit Windows and have more that 4GB RAM then you need to upgrade to 64 BIT.
This is the RAM you need:
Standard Memory : 256MB (Removable) Maximum Memory : 2GB Total Memory Slots : 2 Memory Type : DDR2 533MHz (PC2-4200) 200-PIN SODIMM Notes :

Dell Inspiron 1100 does not see new memory


Install one memory first to any of the memory slots and boot your laptop... then do the same on the other slot with the same memory.

Now do the same step to the other memory...

That is to see if any of the two memory has a problem or to see which memory slot has a problem... You should find a problem in there... that would be memory or the memory slot.

Memory upgrade


hi there, if is still hardware warranty, don't touch it. use your warranty. better to repalce unit with warranty. Beeping sound means memory problem. The problem is in the slot of the memory chips of the board. If the warranty laft, try to clean the slot of the memory chips to the board and the contact of memory chips. It will work seem you were using it before you upgrade the memory. TY
