Hold onto the laptop while you work with it to discharge any static electricity.
Take the cover off of the back that houses the memory. Remove the old memory and replace it with the new memory. You might have two slots for memory. If you do you can put two in at a time. There also might be a stick of memory under the keyboard. That is harder to do and I would advise you to leave it alone unliss you know exactly what you are doing. There are a lot of screws and tiny parts that can be lost and/or broken. Download the manual for the laptop and it should have the directions in it also.

How to put in new memory on my acer 1691 notebook

Laptops are notoriously difficult to upgrade with one exception. Luckily, that exception is one of the quickest and best ways to improve the performance of your Acer laptop. Adding more RAM will speed up your laptop and boost its performance. Be aware, though, that Acer is also notorious for its "hidden memory compartment" under the keyboard.

Adding RAM to Your Acer Laptop
  • Step 1 Unplug your laptop from the AC power source and remove the battery.
  • Step 2 Protect your computer from static electricity by grounding yourself with an ESD wrist strap or through another grounding method.
  • Step 3 Locate the memory access door for the main memory module. It should be on the back of your computer.
  • Step 4 Unscrew the memory access door and remove it.
  • Step 5 Remove the RAM module by applying gentle outward pressure to the securing clips on either side of the RAM module until they release.
  • Step 6 Rotate the RAM module upward to a 45 degree angle and slide it out of the slot.
  • Step 7 Align the new RAM module with the tab in the connector slot.
  • Step 8 Slide it firmly into place and gently rotate it downward until it clicks into place.
  • Step 9 Replace the memory access door.
  • Step 10 Replace the battery and power up the computer. It should recognize the added memory and reconfigure itself for use.

    Just need to know how to insert a new memory stick I bought for my dinosaur 3000. Fry's salesman said I could find a step-by-step instruction. THX!

    Dinosaur, as in a old acer aspire 3000 or what?

    Most likely two screws on the bottom of the laptop that hold the memory cover closed, inside you will find 1-2 memory modules, you may have to remove one of the old ones and then install the new one, or if one is free install the new one there.
