Dear KEN,

Please find below the link to download the HP Pavilion Notebook zt1000, xz100 and Omnibook xt1000 Series PCs - Troubleshooting and Self-Repair Guide

On pages 45 to 49 there is the whole procedure to find the RAM slot you are asking (beneath the keyboard)

The slot is the same as the one you have at the bottom.
You can use different memory modules rated PC133 Speed (sized 128,256,512mb)

Please remember to remove the battery before you do any work in the laptop.

turn the computer upside down, first unplug the device from power outlet, then remove battery on laptop, you will need some small screwdrivers and there is a small panel in the corner, unscrew the small panel off, then in order to get the old ram out, place both your thumbs on each end and push out and the ram will pop up and you can take out, then slide the ram in slant put down slowly and it will click in place. After in, then screw the back cover on and put battery in device and plug in power source, and your all set

How can I go into the BIOS of a Toshiba Satellite A45-S1202?

could be a bit cramped, sort of like showering in your watch!

Now to be serious, under neeath the toshiba is a small trap door with either a single or two screws. This is where the ram is contained. Undo this hatch and look for two pins ( might have to stand ram up or remove it) look for two small pins like a male plug You maqy have seen these types of pins before Sometimes covered with a little black square cap. Well these pins have no cap but if you short them across with a paper clip that will remove passoword to bios. replace ram, shut and rescrew the hatch and all is now ready for a new password or no password Now if I have misunderstood you and you just wantr to edit the bios on startup press F2

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Ram upgrade

The best way to find out for sure how much ram your computer could take is to do a scan with the Crucial scanner.
Go to and click on "Scan My System" 1539d96.jpg

Now you're going to download the scanner. Click the checkbox to agree to the ToS and Download the Scanner.

Depending on the browser you're using, you're going to click "Run" or "Save". I'm using Google Chrome so I only got the "Save" option. Click or double-click to run the scanner.

Allow the program to run if it asks you if you're sure you want to run it.
Crucial gives you a recommended max-it-out RAM config if you wish to max out your memory.

However the pricing can be quite a little steep, so if you just want information about what kind of RAM your computer needs and what it would run best with, the section below carries this information (directly below from the above screenshot).

You can take this bit of information to your local Best Buy or Fry's or any preferred computer store and they can help you with what you're looking for.
Hope this helps :)

My laptop takes a long time to boot willupgrading ram can bring that time to minimum

Are you using windows? There would be some small errorsin the bootup process.. Usually reinstalling the operating system solves it. Upgrading the RAM will not make a very big difference. How much is your current RAM?

How to install more ram

Most laptops have a small hatch on the underside, usually held closed by a single screw. Should be a piece of cake adding more RAM, remembering that there is probably only one slot, so your original one meg will have to be taken out before you add new RAM chips.

Looking to install memory in XPS M140

Usually there is a latch at the bottom where the memory chips go. Sometimes they are situated under the keyboard...

Upgrading memory

Open all the hatches underneath the unit, there is a chance that the only memory slot you find is empty as the current RAM in the system might be on-board or somewhere else. If none of the hatches under the unit reveal the RAM slot then it would be under the keyboard. On the toughbooks I use there is four screws above the keyboard holding it down. On your there may be a plastic piece that needs to be removed to reveal the screws or you may have to remove some screws from the bottom to loosen the keyboard.

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.
