Add ram to asus f501a

The F501A has one RAM slot- located on the underside of the motherboard. It's a tricky thing to reach, but doable if you have patience. Turn the laptop bottom-up. Remove the battery. Remove the 11 screws from the back cover. The two nearest the hinge are longer than the other 9. They're tiny so put them into a cup as you work. Turn laptop over & grab the top cover in the area of either hinge & gently lift. Use a plastic credit card or plastic flat tool to slide around the edge as you gently pull upwards. There are little clips holding the cover down & they are freed as you push/slide the tool. Once the top cover is free, carefully lift towards you & un-clip the two ribbon cables which are holding it to the motherboard.

Now, in order to reach the underside RAM slot, you must un-clip the cable near the top right (the VGA screen), disconnect the fan, & remove any screws you see that are holding the motherboard down. Then, while supporting the fan, carefully lift the motherboard from the left side, up & towards the right (standing it up on it's right edge)- you may even want to tip the laptop onto it's side as you go.

From here, you'll now have access to the RAM slot. Only reassemble the fan & a couple of screws, then the VGA cable & keyboard cables & test that the RAM is recognized in the BIOS. You can press the tiny power button by reaching under the spot where it normally rests (so you don't have to reattach the entire keyboard/cover right away). Once you see the RAM is detected, then you can fully reassemble.

If you'd like a reminder- just take photos as you go.

Lastly, the maximum RAM is 8GB.

My screen is black. I think I may have put it in

depending on how the system is set up simply pressing the power button on keyboard or the PC
If you get no response no matter what you try then unplug the PC from the mains for 10 seconds. I have had this once where the ram went faulty and the system ended up needing new RAM but I think this is extremely rare especially in your case.

I need to install new ram on a compaq nx 5000 but do not know how to correctly do this. Do you have a ''how to guide to dismantle this machine please


You dont need to dismantle it at all. Either there is a cover underneath the notebook which is held on by a few screws which simply needs to be removed and new memory put in (ensuring an antistatic wristband is used) or in some cases removal of the keyboard may be required as the memory is sometimes put under there.

You will need to ensure the correct memory type is sourced and fitted.

How do i replace the keyboard in hp dv6500

First thing is to take the battery out. Then you need to remove the access door that covers the wireless card and Ram memory. In the area where the battery sits, there are three screws, these hold the power strip in place. Remove those screws, now there are two more screws in there up against the battery compartment, these are marked with a keyboard icon, remove these two screws. Now, there is one more screw for the keyboard and that is in the wireless/ram compartment. It is down in a "tube" but marked with the keyboard icon. Once that screw is removed, turn the laptop back over and open the lid. With your fingernails pry up on the right side of the power strip and lift it gently, it will pop up, but be careful because there are a couple of flat cables that connect it to the motherboard. This strip does not have to be removed to remove the keyboard. Just shift it toward the display so that you can grab the keyboard at the top and lift it toward you to clear the power strip. There are no other screws holding it down. Once you lift it up at about a 45 degree angle shift it toward the display and this will allow the keyboard "catches" to release at the bottom of the keyboard. Look under the keyboard and there will be a flat cable attached to the motherboard, this is the last attachment. It is held in place by a tension clip. look at the white or light colored strip of plastic on the end of the cable socket, move this toward the display, it will slide forward releasing the cable. Reverse these processes to put the new keyboard back in. Just remember the keyboard slides under the palmrest at the bottom of the keyboard, watch the keyboard when you remove and you will see what I mean.

Installing extra RAM on my Acer Travelmate 803LCi

No, the plastic strip should snap out. I generally lift up from the right side. Once I get the side up, I work the rest of it up and out.

Samsung Q40

Having the same issue here but not finding a solution, I thought I'd post the answer after testing it out myself!

On the underside of the Q40 are seven screws which are marked with arrows (if you look in the centre of the underside one is marked with the letters KBD so you know what you're looking for).

Before you remove the keyboard, be aware that there is a ribbon connector underneath it, which can be removed, but is stiff and isn't very easy to get back in by hand. You don't need to remove it to upgrade the RAM as it should be long enough for you to be able to work around it, but just ensure that you are careful when you do remove the keyboard as ribbon connectors are easily damaged.

Remove all of these screws to release the keyboard. Open up the screen, and GENTLY lift the keyboard free working from the side closest to the touchpad. Once the bottom is free, slide it toward you and away from the screen to release the two metal tabs securing the keyboard at the screen side.

Now the keyboard is free, jiggle it around until you have access to the memory slot. Ping out the memory by releasing the two tabs either side, and pop in the new chip.

To reassemble, slide the keyboard securing tabs at the top back toward the monitor, lay the keyboard flat, close, turn over, and put the screws back in.

Hope that helps!
