4. While holding the locks gently push the locks away form the memory (sideways)
5. The memory will popout and you may now remove and replace it with a higher capacity.


Note: This is only done if there are no available slots for the new memory. If a slot is still available no need to remove old memory. Just insert the memory on the available slot

Access is through the bottom. A service manual for the 2100 is located here, but you shouldn't even need it. One or two screws and you're in.

I want to upgrade my Laptop NX 5000 RAM which is currently 256 mb. Please suggest in details what type of ram is reqd i.e. DDR, DDR1/2 and what about 180/200 pins


You can upgrade to 2GB.
(1024MB.
512 MegaByte + 512MB = 1024MegaByte
1024MB = 1GigaByte )

It is DDR Sdram.
(Double Data Rate Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory)

It is also SO-DIMM, as used for laptops.
(Single Outline Dual Inline Memory Module)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SO-DIMM

There are 200 gold plated contact pins. 100 on each side,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:1GB_DDR2_SO-DIMM.png

Note the Locating Notch on the bottom, and how it is off to one side.
Note the Side Notch on each side.

There is a Locating Lug in the bottom of the ram memory slot, for the laptop.
The ram memory module must be turned to the Locating Notch lines up with the Locating Lug.

There are spring clips on each side of a ram memory module.
The tops of the spring clips are eased to the outside.

This allows a bump, or protrusion on the spring clip, to come out of the Side Notch.
When the ram memory module is ensured to be seated correctly, in the ram memory slot, the spring clip 'bump' will be in the Side Notch.

A laptop ram memory module is removed AT AN ANGLE!
NOT too much more than the angle it is in, when installed in the ram memory slot.

After the two spring clips are eased out, the ram memory module will pop up a little bit.
Slide it out AT THAT ANGLE.

If you it up to a straight up position, you will damage the gold plated contact pins of the ram memory module, and the contact pins in the ram memory slot.

Damage the contact pins in the ram memory slot, and you are looking at motherboard replacement.

Everywhere on the ram memory module is the BODY, except for the gold plated contact pins.
Handle the ram memory module by the Body.
The Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.

Refrain from touching the gold plated contact pins.


[ DDR Sdram IS DDR1. Double Data Rate Sdram.
DDR2 Sdram is Double Data Rate 2 Sdram.
DDR3 Sdram is Double Data Rate 3 Sdram,

1) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DDR_SDRAM

2) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DDR2_SDRAM

3) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DDR3_SDRAM

It is the Technology used, not referring to the size ]

DIMM for desktops, Dual Inline Memory Module
SO-DIMM for laptops.
Single Outline Dual Inline Memory Module.

You need SO-DIMM, with 200 pins, and it's Frequency Rate, ('Speed'), is rated at 333Megahertz. (333MHz)
That is PC2700.

Where dom i insert new memmory in a dell latitude d820 computer?


1. Remove the keyboard bezel with a flathead screwdriver.
2. Remove three screws securing the keyboard
3. Unplug the keyboard cable from the motherboard and remove the keyboard. The internal RAM (memory) slot is located under the keyboard, right above the touch pad buttons.

Product data sheet claims there are 2 memory bays but I find only one back in the memory expansion bay. How do I access the second (hidden) memory slot?


Some model laptops have memory slots in different locations.
One would be on the bottom of the laptop and one would be on top of the motherboard under the keyboard.
The memory slot on top of the motherboard would already be fitted with a memory module and only needs to be replaced with a larger RAM module if required.

Satalite m35x-s161 how to replace the keyboard?


Toshiba Satellite How to remove keyboard and upgrade memory modules. This post was written by cj2600 on April 28, 2006
Posted Under: Toshiba Satellite A20/A25 --> toshiba-satellite-a20-a25-memory.jpgRemoving and replacing memory on a Toshiba Satellite A20 or A25 notebook is not as easy ad it should be. Both memory modules are located under the keyboard. A laptop keyboard has to be replaced in order to get access to the memory modules. Before you remove the keyboard do not forget to remove the laptop battery or you can damage the laptop. Be careful when you remove the keyboard securing strip; do not bend it too much. To remove the memory module from the slot on the system board, release the latches on both sides and the memory module will pop up. It will stay at a 30 degree angle to the system board. Firmly grasp the memory module and remove it from the slot.

Compaq Presario Notebook V3000T I replaced the 2-256mb memory cards with 2-1g memory cards. System boots up but only reads 1024mb?


Thanks to Microsoft Knowledge Base for help with my answer:

First, find out what the maximum amount of memory is. This is generally listed by most of the manufacturers. This will let you know what upgrade potential the system has. Next, determine how the memory configuration is when you buy the system. For example, a laptop that has 2GB of memory can be configured as either a single 2GB module or two 1GB modules. The single memory module allows for better upgrade potential because by adding another module you are gaining more memory without sacrificing any current memory. Upgrading the two module situation with a 2GB upgrade would result in the loss of one 1GB module and a memory total of 3GB.

Want to know how to upgrade my lap top memory thank you


To upgrade you will need a SoDimm 2gb DDR II SDRAM, 667 MHz module, on the bottom of the notebook you will need to remove the panel usually secured by 4 screws to gain access to the memory slots, you probably have a 1 and 2 gb modules already so it'll mean removing the 1gb chip and discarding it as you only have 2 memory slots so you can fit the new 2gb module.

I wasn't able to find where exactly your memory modules are located, but there are either on the bottom of the laptop with just a screw and plastic cover on top of them, or they are underneath the keyboard.

Here are the specs for the Armada M700. This will let you know what type and how large you can take it too.
