I have purchased two 2Gb Ram sticks that I want to swap out. When I open the eMachine EL1352G computer up it appears as if I must remove the DVD/CD drive to gain access. Is there an easier way than this?

If memory serves the optical drive swings out of the way.

I also, (All cables removed), lay a static free towel down on the table, and lay the computer on it's side, on the table. (Opening side up)

[Be SURE to follow Anti-Static Precautions BEFORE reaching inside your unplugged from power computer; and during working on it.
Make sure you align the Locating Notch of the Ram Memory module; with the Locating Lug in the ram memory slot, when installing.
Locks on each end of ram memory slot click, when the ram memory module is correctly installed.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

I have an acer m1100 and for some reason any type of 1gb ddr2 memory it put in it just comes up in system properties sayin not useable if i boot wiv the other 512 stick in aswell, dont know why it wont...

Memory modules are fickle mistresses; sometimes you'll need matching modules of RAM for it to be recognized properly. From what I'm understanding, you're trying to boot a module of 1GB and another of 512MB. Try to swap the native 512MB for another 1GB stick and see if it works. As well, it's a good idea to install RAM modules that were manufactured by the same company.

Before you do that, it's important to understand that the RAM modules are very delicate electronics. It's also entirely possible, if you haven't worn sufficient ElectroStatic Discharge (ESD) safety equipment, that static electricity could render a module useless. Performing a RAM swap in a proper environment and with the proper equipment (ESD bracelets, in this case) minimizes the possibility of static electricity junking computer components.

Also possible, albeit rare, is that the module is simply defective out of the box. If this appears to be the case, then you can simply return it with the receipt for a refund or an exchange.

Wont recognize additional ram

It could be the wrong ram that u are using when i put extra ram in I make sure they are all the same brand. some boards take 2 different types of ram (speeds) i would go back to crucial with your good ram in and then do a check and see what ram your board needs

Acer l100 memory upgrade

I just attempted this, and I must say that there are many things about the other solutions that just plain wrong. Here is my step-by-step:
  1. Choose your RAM. Use the memory advisor from Crucial to tell you which ram to use: I used their PC 5300 2*1GB kit. You can RAM from any retailer, as long as it is the same type recommended by the memory advisor.
  2. Lay the case flat and remove the screw in the middle of the top plate at the back, then slide the top plate off. You will probably have to break the warranty seal to do this.
  3. There are three black clips that hold the front bezel onto the top section. Prise them upwards and the bezel will come away.
  4. There is a black screw on the motherboard near the back, holding down a piece of metal attached to the top section (drive bays). Remove this screw, then pull gently on the plastic handle on the top section to loosen it.
  5. Lift the top section so that you can pull the power and IDE cables from the hard drive at the back, then lift it fully upwards. Be careful of the ribbon cable underneath, you may need someone to hold it up for you while you change the RAM.
  6. To remove the old RAM, do not simply prise it upwards as someone else said. The RAM slot has a metal clip at each side; push these outwards to the sides until they click. This releases the RAM so that they can be lifted out.
  7. Slide the new RAM into the bays and push it down to lock it into place. Make sure both sides click properly.
  8. Reassemble the case in reverse order, taking care to get everything stowed away in the right place. Take care remounting the front bezel to make it is properly in place before clicking the tabs back on top.
Hope someone finds this useful. By the way, while i can in there I noticed an empty expansion bay: anybody know what this is?
