- Laptops often have their RAM located on the underside of the system. Some
systems place the RAM right under the keyboard.
- Locate the memory bay. It is usually a sliding panel.
- If you open the bay to the hard driver instead, look for the other sliding
panel. - You may need a small philips screwdriver to unscrew the panel, or, as below,
you may need to simply need a flathead to lever the panel upwards for removal.
Hope this information help you a bit. Have a great day.

Try changing your RAM\Memory. This is often caused by a stick of RAM going bad. You will need to get a notebook stick of PC2700 (333MHz) DDR RAM. I suggest getting a stick that is at least 512MB. The maximum that your computers can take is 2GB (2 sticks X 1GB). If you're unsure your ability to do this then ask a local computer shop\tech to test your RAM by putting a different stick of RAM into your computer. There may be a charge for their services rendered. Often they won't charge you for testing your computer if you pay them for the RAM if\when they diagnose it as definitely being the RAM that is causing the problems. It's usually pretty easy to change the RAM yourself. It's usually located in a compartment that is accessible from the bottom of your laptop. The removable cover with the RAM under it is typically marked with the icon of a memory chip next to the cover. Typically laptops only have 2 RAM slots, one on top of the other. Just move the brackets holding it into place and the RAM should lift up. WARNING: be sure your computer is turned off when doing this and be sure that you're grounded as well. RAM is highly sensitive to static charge (The electrical poke you get from door knobs, light switches, and blankets). A simple static-poke can fry your RAM. If you can't find your RAM in a compartment on the bottom of your laptop, then it is likely under the keyboard. I'm pretty sure your RAM compartment is located on the bottom of your laptop.
I have one of these laptops. The first RAM slot is easy to find - it is behind the small acces panel on the laptop's underside. The second one is much harder to reach. It is located under the keyboard. Yes - you need to remove the keyboard to get to it!
there should be a little place on the bottom of your computer that needs a screw driver to open then in there there is a little port that is the saze of a lap top ram card....trn your compter off and take the battery out...once u have done that press the power button (because the computer can hold an eletrical charge for a period of time...once u have done that slide the ram card into the port at the bottom of your computer and put the cover back on....then put you battey back in and turn on you computer....while its booting the screen should go back and it starts counting up that is ur ram and thats the computer reconizing your ram....after that go to controll pannel and click the system icon and at the bottom of the page that pops up will be some info...there will be somthing that says ur total ram in your comp if it dosent email me at email@example.com
The other memory may be soldered in. Check your manual and see if it has any information on additional memory. If you only have on expansion slot you may have to buy larger memory chips. like instead of 2 chips 1 gig each you may have to purchase a 2 gig chip. Computer companies usually make the chip installation easy to get to on lap tops.
Hi, I think you should remove your Memory RAM at the back of the laptop and wipe the edges with a clean white sheet.you can locate this also using your manual Put it back and lets notice the results.. But if the problem still exists then i think you should change the memory RAM with a good one..
Please let me get back to me and let me know the results.. Thanks
Most current laptops have a lid/panel underneath the bottom covers hiding the memory. You need to turnover the laptop and visual inspect the bottom panel/cover. Memories often are readily accessible to the user. They are underneath a lid/panel which is roughly squarish about 2 X 2 inches. It is normally held in place by small screw(s). Upon screw removal, you need to pry open the lid cover to expose the memories. Pressing sideways on the 2 retaining clips of the memory would pop it out slightly which should then be relatively easy to remove.Popping in new memory is the reverse. Diagonally insert the new memories into the slots to initially set them in. Gently but firmly press on the memories downwards to lock them in place. You will notice that the 2 retaining clips will automatically lock in place.
Alternately, for a few more, you can purchase the memory from any computer shop/store and ask them to install hereby assuring yourself that the job was done right. Further the store will not have any excuse/reason when the new memory malfunctions and can be readily replaced.
Of course yo can do it yourself, it is relatively a simple job and if you are willing to take the risk (very minimal), go for a DIY (do-it-yourself).
Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
