I would like to add memory to my acer 5315 notebook. I have taken the panel off the back, but I don't know where to put the new RAM in. I can only find how to replace memory, not to add more.

Hello,

Your laptop can only be upgraded to 2GB DDR2. If you already have 2GB then that is how far it will go. Unless a recent BIOS upgrade can change that.

Some Acer models have an additional memory space under the keyboard on the mainboard.

The ram location is right where you are looking. There are two memory slots available for ram. They are staggered one on top of the other. Release the side pins and the module will pop up at a 45 degree angle . Pull the module out in the direction and replace at that angle, then push the module down in place. You may only have one memory slot filled at this time, Therefore there would be an empty slot to fill.

After memory upgrade it's not coming on


The RAM is either faulty or the wrong type for this laptop.
Try using the same brand as the original RAM but larger RAM size.

Have an acer 5315 model icl50 and want to add 1 gb memory, is there a way to know the exact match for memory module without opening back cover


Hello there!

You would most likely look for a DDR2 667MHz PC2-5300 RAM Memory Module.BTW, it should be a 200-pin Non-parity un-buffered & precisely 1.8volts.

Hope this helps.

I wish to add more RAM to my laptop but cannot get cover openbehi


The ram is under a base cover and the cover is usually indicated by small rectangles imprinted in the plastic. I will send you the link to the service manual that will show everything you need to know about your laptop.
The ram, wireless card, heat-sink and processor are all under the largest of the panels. The smaller panel is where the hard drive lives and then there is the battery.

Installing Acer 5315 series memory


Laptops use a different type of RAM unlike a tower computer, the RAM is like little square pieces. Unscrew the cover, lift the old RAM out and replace with the new. Its located on the back or underside of the computer.

Ram Memory


I did this 2 days ago on my gf's aspire 5315-2153 (walmart special $348). the underside panel has four tiny screws which must be removed and then the fun begins. The plastic panel is large and doesn't want to be removed. After 20 minutes of cursing, i was able to get it out with two hands and a small screwdriver. The plastic panel has about 7-8 tabs which also hold it in place. The original two memory modules must be removed and the two new ones installed in their place. i bought crucial memory from newegg.com (CT2KIT12864AC667) for $17 delivered (took a week to get) which was much cheaper than buying it direct from crucial.com Save the old memory modules just in case you have a problem with the new ones. After putting them in, I restarted the computer and it booted up fine. No BIOS changes or any of that were necessary. So for $17 and about 30 minutes, this lappy is now running strong with 2gb instead of 1gb. Initial impression is that it boots up faster and shuts down faster but that is about it in terms of improvement!!!

Acer 5315-2713 add memory card


OK, In general for the 5315 series, the memory replacement should be roughly the same.
You seem to have an idea what you're doing, so here's a little specifics:

Here's what you see once you get the giant "thermal door" cover off. To remove the cover, first, remove the four screws. Now carefully slip a thin tool like a table knife under the edge of the cover where the indent is and work around towards the front and back of the laptop.
DON'T pry along the side towards the side of the laptop or you'll break those longer tabs. That's the edge which goes in first when you replace the cover.


The RAM pops out easily by spreading the clips on either side.
