You need to remove two screws on underside, closest to underside memory bank - yes these hold the keyboard - push back three small black "little" hinges in front of left 'ctrl' key, space bar, and arrow down key - obvious only when you finally see them. (battery & Ac disconnected of course) use CARE when "lifting" keyboard up-really more like gently lift space bar side up and gently rotate it back to see and gain access to RAM socket

I need to know how to install a laptop hinge on a sony vaio a690? Is it required that I remove the lcd when I attempt to install the hinge?


As the hinge is what binds the display assembly to the laptop itself, you will need to remove the display assembly in order to replace the hinge. However, if you are only replacing the hinge cover, then you don't have to remove the display assembly.

The Crucial website suggests you can put 1GB in each slot. http://www.crucial.com/uk/store/listparts.aspx?model=VAIO%20VGN-S460%20Series Sony might know which CPUs will work with this. Hopefully any Pentium-M with 533 FSB.
