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 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.

Casing


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.

Krups XP7240, power button seems to be broken. How do I fix this.


Release and remove front panel pulling it up. Then remove two upper screws. Gently unfasten control panel cover, unscrew electronics, buttons etc. There is a plastic sprue which forwards pressing force down to microswitches. Probably sprue is cracked. Just glue it, add some more plastic to strengh it.

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!!!

I have an advent T9404. I need to open the case to add RAM. I have removed the two obvious screws that hold the side panel, but the side panel will not move. I don't want to force it. Is there another...


Remove 2 screws from right rear of case, then slide the side of the case backwards. The panel is a tight fit and may require firm pressure to remove. There is no other screw or fixing point.

I am wanting to instal more RAM into a Laptop "Acer Aspire 3503". Where is the RAM situated? What panels need to be removed? Regards Ron


Hi ,Your laptop memory is found directly below the keypad.So you guest right-you will have to remove the keypad to get to the memory.When you flip the laptop over you will find the keypad screws marked with small keypad immages.Make sure you find them all and do NOT force the keypad off.Some keypads are also locked at top of the pad looking from the front.You can release them with a small screw driver.Also take great care not to rip the keypad cable open or off when you lift the keypad up and downwards-it has a lock peace securing it in the connecting socket,which you must lock again when you re-install the pad.Also remember not to touch the copper connections of the memory cards during the installation process.{static electricity of your body will damage the electronic gates on the card,rendering it useless.The memory clips in place and is locked on the sides,which you have to release before slipping the old cards out.If you are only adding a card,make sure it lock into place.Regards Georgeo
