Turn off the computer, open the case, then find the memory sticks that are already installed. there will be clips on either side of the slot. move those gently away from each other and they will open up slightly. Then slide the stick into the slot and push down. If it doesn't go in, check to make sure it isn't in backwards, there is a slot in the stick that will only allow it to be inserted the correct way. once you have it creectly alligned, press down until the clips snap into place.

This is how to physically put more memory in, but make sure that what you've bought is compatible, and matches or replaces the sticks already in place.

Can i buy and install my own memory upgrade? if so what are size and compatibility issues to avoid? thanks


Toshiba Satellite A135-S2356 has a maximum of 2GB which can be installed in the maximum 2 memory Slots in the memory compartment: 2 X 1GB PC2-4200 DDR2 SODIMM (200 pins) memory stick.
Note that in general, especially for older laptops, that you should not mix different size/brand of memory stick as the unit may even fail to boot or can behave erractically (reboots or system freezes).
Hope it helps.

I need to add memory but don't know what I need. I don't want to get the wrong memory upgrade but I had it cleaned out and upgraded, its way to slow to run windows xp with only 256 RAM


First, you need to know the max your computer can hold. Then, simply go and buy them from best buy. I think they will also install it for you. If not, then check out this guide.http://www.helpwithpcs.com/upgrading/install-laptop-memory.htm

    Need to upgrade memory have bought memory cards and want to install them how do i do it


    Hi..

    To upgrade your memory besure that you will know what is the socket of your memory slot. Before you buy a memory look at your memory socket first so that the memory you buy is totally fix to the socket. Open you unit and look for the memory stick inside. If you dont have a little experience on how to upgrade it's better that you will go to the computer shop to ugrade your unit. So that the upgrading is successful, if you can do it with your own it is ok because it is not expensive.

    Installing memory upgrade


    No.
    Once you install the memory into the slot the BIOS will update the memory configuration during the bootup proccess.
    You can check to see if your new memory has been fully recognised by double clicking "System" in control panel.
    If you check the amount of memory in System before the install and compare it afterwards you will know for sure if the memory has registered correctly.

    Installing Memory


    Hi

    Yes, you can replace/upgrate the memory module under the keyboard.

    Before you proceed, note that Dell Inspiron 2650 uses DDR200 3.3V SODIMM modules. Also, memory module capacities supported are 128MB and 256MB with a Maximum memory of 512MB. If the current memory installed is 128MB, you need to order 2x 256MB modules to replace/upgrade both memory slots. If the installed capacity is 256MB, you just need another 256MB for the slot underneath the laptop.

    Check "Removing the Keyboard" for guide removing the keyboard to access the 2nd memory slot.

    Read "Preparing to Work Inside the Computer" before committing to the above procedure.

    Let me know how you get on.
