There are usually small buttons that slide in order to unlock access doors in the case, in addition to the screws. Look at the bottom of the laptop for switch type of buttons. There should be one to hold the battery and the cd drive and one for the hard drive. Keep a coffee cup next to you in order to drop the small screws and parts into it so that they do not get knocked off of the table during your work.

    It's easy. Why do people guess all the time - If they don't know they should stop trying to be a hero.

    I guarantee you have missed 2 extremely tiny screws which are only visible when the cd tray is open. You may have already worked out there are 3 rubber grommits hiding 3 more screws but NOTHING is hidden under any feet.

    Lift the case while sliding it towards the CD drawer as the action of removing the underside is coupled with the internal unplugging of the CD unit. You'll see it. (FYI if you later remove the metal tape from the CD housing it can then easily be slid back in even once the computer has been reassembled.

    Think - Thick screws hold the screen mechanism in on the back and side
    The tiniest screws hold the periopherals like the CD unit and Hard drive
    The long thin screws hold the rest in.

    Best to draw a diagram and get some bluetack so you know where they go.

Philips Freevents X65 - how do I access memory slots to upgrade

Most times the memory slots will be on the bottom of the laptop. You just remove the power cord, remove the battery then remove the screws to the cover that houses the memory. Look for little icons on the cover, the circular discs will be the cd drive and the hard drive. The memory cover icon will have a jagged square on it.

If the memory is not on the bottom of the laptop then it will be located under the keyboard and palmrest area which means you will have to take them apart to get to it.

How to upgrade RAM memory for Laptop Philips X50 Freevents?

there are 2 memory slots under the keyboard cover at the front right of the laptop. If you unscrew the 4 screws at that run along the front of the base and the 2 that relate to the front right as you look down at the keyboard you will be able to gently unclip the keyboard cover on that side and gain access. be careful though as the cover is held in place on the left by a hidden clip that I have not found as yet.
The dimm installed in the back slot is a 512mb ddr333mhz pc2700 sodimm.
