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.

I want to get to the motherboard. how many screws are there?

1 Wear an antistatic wrist strap before you start dismantling the notebook. Doing so will prevent static electricity from damaging internal components.
2 Shut down the notebook, and remove its AC power cord and battery. Turn the laptop over and remove all marked screws from the bottom. Raise the plastic shells covering the hard drive, memory (RAM) and wireless card slots, and uninstall the components by lifting off the base. You may have to release locking clips to free the RAM module from its slot.
3 Turn the laptop around and detach the keyboard panel. Using a flat-head screwdriver, push inward on the four small latches holding the keyboard in place to disengage them. Lift the keyboard to remove it, and disconnect its flex cable. Remove the five screws from the exposed landing. Do not undo the screws securing the heat sink and CD-ROM drive.
4 Split the notebook casing open. Insert a pointy or flat-tipped implement between the top and bottom parts of the casing, and maneuver to detach the locking mechanisms holding the two parts together. Work your way all around the perimeter to detach and remove the top casing. Do not apply too much force, or you may break the plastic parts.
5 Remove the hinge covers holding the LCD panel. Unscrew the two plastic hinges to loosen the display assembly and its enclosed LCD screen. Locate and pry open the CMOS battery---a flat, circular component resembling a watch battery---from the motherboard. Disconnect the LCD cables, and detach the panel from the laptop by lifting it up from its position.
6 Undo all securing screws from the chipset and heat sink. Remove the components by gently raising, checking to ensure that you've disengaged all attachments. Remove the CD-ROM drive by unscrewing its attachment and detaching it from the notebook. With the optical drive off, disconnect the speaker's connecting wires and remove the speaker assembly.
7 Unscrew all points of attachment to release the motherboard from the notebook's chassis. Locate and undo all locking mechanisms, such as clips or hooks, to free the motherboard. Remove the plastic inserts for the modem, as well as the PCMCIA and SD card slots, and detach the motherboard. Move the board around a little to release it, and lift it off the notebook.

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.

How to put a new screen on a acer laptop

You need to remove the front top cover above the keyboard to get to the screws that hold the screen on the laptop, then you may have to remove the keyboard to get to the display cables and possibly disconnect the wireless antenna wires from the bottom of the laptop.

Then unscrew all the screws that hold the screen in place. around 4-6 screws. The screen should be free to move and you can pull it up from the case.

if you have a new panel you will need to open up the old screen cover, unscrew the screws, and use a flat screwdriver or a case opener tool to snap open the cover as its hold closed with plastic clips.

if you have a completely new display you can just slide it in the old ones place, connect the cables and screw the screws back.

if the connector is different do not force the connector, buy the exact same model screen as your old one is, if you bought the wrong display and the connectors don't fit, forceing them in the connectors may ruin the connectors.

The memory socket is located below and to the right of the keyboard. The panel is to the right of the mouse pad.

The keyboard needs to be removed. DO NOT REMOVE THE KEYBOARD CABLE! Remove the screw located in the middle lof the underside of the n610c. Slide the four tabs located on the top edge of the keyboard toward the space bar. The tabs are located to the right of the esc, the F4, the F8, and F12 key. Using a flat blade screwdriver gently lift the top edge of the keyboard, once it is lifted slide it toward the screen.

The panel covering the memory may require "gentle force" to remove.

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 (CT2KIT12864AC667) for $17 delivered (took a week to get) which was much cheaper than buying it direct from 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 5720Z removing rear cover to access RAM real careful with removing may need to GENTLY pry that up, under the slot, that is on one side...make sure all screws are removed, or loosened..this may mean that your memory was NOT installed correctly in the first place(causing the door to jam)..

Or, you may have the magnetic memory(just kidding)
