I have a CN6555, if the picture you put is the real laptop, my laptops it's almost the same, so one memory bank should be easily accessed because it's in the middle from the down side (where you access the batery pack); the second one, :(, well, unfourntanly it's a little bit complicated, because you must disassamble the laptop, under the keyboard it's the second memory bank, under a metalic plate. Just put out the plastic cover near to the LCD, with a tiny screwdriver remove the keyboard and the metalic cover under the keyboard and you will see the memory bank.

Usually under the bottom of the laptop there are some covers, the memory will be under one of them. To see what to look for follow this link: http://img.zdnet.com/techDirectory/_MEMMOD.GIF To find a compatible module run the tool from crucial http://www.crucial.com/systemscanner/index.aspx

Hi this sounds like a memory/ram issue you need to power of your machine, remove the power cable & then without the power cable connected, press & hold the power button for 15 seconds until it makes a chime noise, that is a basic power function reset, if that does not solve it, remove the memory cover panel on the under side of your laptop then carefully remove the memory chips blow or vacuum the area & use a dry piece of tissue to very gently clean your memory of any dust, replace the ram chips & re-connect power cord, this should solve it, but if not try starting up again without the power cord, if it's successful without the power cord you'll need a new 1, if not it suggests your ram chips have gone bad & you may need to purchase new ram chips, good luck :-) you can find more info about the 5 beeps here: Computer Does Not Start and Emits an LED or Beep Code

if you need to purchase new memory/ram chips you can get cheap ram here: Cheap Laptop Memory RAM Upgrade Low Prices UK Deals Ebuyer com

If you do need to buy new ram chips, I'd advise buying 2x 4GB modules :-)

Would a 2x 1gb ram upgrade be better for a toshiba a105-s2236 or would a 1x2gb ram upgrade be better


That computer supports dual channel memory. You would be better to install memory in matching pairs. (2x1GB) On the hardware page of my website www.rfcomputer.biz there is a link to Crucial memory. Just put in your make and model and they will make recomendations

My computer cant start up and is making a beeping noise


Most likely a ram problem. Sometimes reseating the memory will fix the problem.

Remove and reseat the RAM On most notebook PCs, removing and reinserting the memory is a simple step and does not require advanced technical knowledge of the computer. HP recommends reseating the memory module before arranging for warranty service repair. If you are not confident following the steps for removing and replacing the memory module in this document, contact an HP support specialist for assistance.
NOTE: If someone other than HP installs or upgrades the RAM, any damage caused by the RAM and/or by the person when trying to install or upgrade the RAM is excluded from coverage under the product warranty. The customer assumes all risk and liability for damages for any such installation or upgrade.Some HP notebooks may have a secondary memory module located under the keyboard. For removal and replacement instructions pertaining to the second memory module contact an HP support specialist for assistance. WARNING: This product contains components that are easily damaged by Electrostatic Discharge (ESD). To reduce the chance of ESD damage, work over a non-carpeted floor, set the notebook on a grounded surface that dissipates any static charge, and wear an ESD wrist strap that is connected to a grounded surface, like the metal frame of a PC. Use the following steps to remove and replace the memory modules. These steps should be repeated for each memory module installed in your notebook. Step 1 - Remove the battery
  1. Slide and hold the battery release latch to the unlock position.
  2. Use your finger to lift the battery up and out.
Step 2 - Remove the memory module
  1. Locate the memory module cover on the bottom of the notebook.
  2. Remove the screw that covers the memory module.
  3. Use your finger or a flat head screw driver to lift the inside edge of the memory module and remove it.
    NOTE: When handling a memory board, use care to prevent touching the memory chips on the board. Touching the memory chips could damage or destroy the memory.
  4. Push both tabs outward simultaneously to release the memory module.
  5. Grasp the memory module by the edges and pull gently to remove it.
  6. After removing one module, replace the memory expansion cover and then replace the screw.
Step 3 - Reseat the memory module
  1. Locate the memory module cover on the bottom of the notebook.
  2. Remove the screw that covers the memory module.
  3. Locate the alignment slot on the memory module and align it to the empty board receptacle.
  4. Grasp the memory module by the edge and push gently to install it.
    NOTE: When handling a memory board, use care to prevent touching the memory chips on the board. Touching the memory chips could damage or destroy the memory.
  5. Press the expansion memory board down to latch the tabs.
  6. After replacing the module, replace the memory expansion cover and then replace the screw.
After the memory is reseated, connect the AC adapter and turn on the notebook.

Laptop memory upgrade


Your Laptop is using DDR2 Memory, just find your nearest retailer that sells memory and go buy you a chip, ur laptop ships with 1024mb of ram as standard, if you want to get a decent boost pretty cheap then i would just buy another 1gig chip and put it in beside the one already there.

Not sure what your system maxes out at but the average is 4gig of ram so you could try a couple of 2 gig chips if you feel you need that much ram

IBM thinkpad g40..i want to upgrade


To upgrade your CD drive there is a screw on the bottom of the machine that holds it in place. Remove this screw and the drive will slide out. I buy most drives for my customers and shop from Ebay. I've found that there are some very good vendors with good prices and warranties there. Now for the memory. The memory you need for your machine is PC2100, and 1g is the max. I mainly use Kingston or Infiniton. Both of these are good chips, and there are other good chips out there. I suggest that you use two 512mb chips that are the same make. I've found that sometimes two different chips will create a conflict with each other. The memory is located under a panel on the bottom of the machine. For memory I use pricewatch.com If you have any other questions please fell free to ask.

Reg ram upgradation


Each memory slot on the C555NR can support a maximum of 1GB of RAM. There are actually 2 slots, but only one is easily accessible to you. By upgrading both the primary and secondary DIMMs, you could achieve a total of 2GB of memory but you would have to remove the 512mb chip that is already installed and replace it with 1GB (+1GB in the expansion slot as well.)

If you don't plan on taking the computer to a professional to be serviced, you will probably only want to upgrade the memory in the secondary slot located under the memory cover on the underside of the computer. It can handle a 1GB SODIMM.

FYI the memory is:
200 Pin DDR2-533 PC2-4200 SODIMM

Good luck!
