It appears that the memory bay or slot is under the palm rest. Here's a link for the hardware maintenance manual for the T61. There are two manuals one for the 15 inch screen and the other for the 14 inch, you will need to select yours. I'm sure they're basically the same, but there may be some suddle differences.

How to open and upgrade RAM memory of gateway netbook model LT2704u?


This netbook is really the Acer Aspire One D255. You have to pop off the keyboard, then remove 4 screws that hold the back panel in place, which will allow you to remove that back panel in order to get to the memory.

Here's a video - blurry but it tells the story: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KYNTvF0-5M

Hi. I upgraded the memory on my Asus F5 from 512mb to 2gig. It has always given start up problems but now the charge light does not even come on when I charge and it does not start.


Hi

I would take the new memory out again put the 512 back in start up the computer hopefully and go to www,crucial.com and it will offer to scan your notebook for you and tell you what your computer is and i believe how much you can put into it then check what the new memory was and see if that helps

How do I open the unit to upgrade the memory?


to open the memory, turn off the laptop, remove the screws at the bottom part of the laptop. Remove the cables and battery, then remove the hard drive, and then remove the optical drive. Then you may remove the memory and insert the new memory upgrade in which I believe you purchase. Then you pc has an upgraded memory already.

My Lifebook N3510 will not Boot


Hi,

Might as well try to Unseat and reseat the memory module .

Turn off power to your Tablet PC, remove any power adapter (AC or auto/airline). Remove the battery. Make sure that all the connector covers are closed. Turn the Tablet PC bottom side up, and remove the screws from the memory upgrade module compartment. Slide the cover towards the battery compartment slightly, then lift it and remove it (Figure 34). Remove the memory upgrade module from the static guarded sleeve. Align the memory upgrade module with the part side up. Align the connector edge of the memory upgrade module with the connector slot in the compartment Insert the memory upgrade module at a 45° angle. Press the connector edge of the module firmly down and into the connector until it lodges under the retaining clip. You’ll hear a click when it is properly in place. Replace the cover and reinstall the screws.

that will be the process

The computer has two memory expansion slots—Slot A and

1 Shut down your computer completely using the Shut Down
command.

2 Unplug the computer.
CAUTION: Installing a memory module with the computer’s
power on may damage the computer, the module, or both.

3 Close the display panel and remove any cables you may have
connected.

4 Turn the computer upside down.

5 Locate and remove the screws that hold the cover plate in
place, then remove the cover from the bay.

CAUTION: Static electricity can damage the memory module.
Before you handle the module, touch a grounded metal
surface to discharge any static electricity you may have built
up.

To avoid damaging the memory module, be careful not to
touch its pin connector on the side you insert into the
computer.

6 Remove the new memory module from its antistatic
packaging.

7 Insert the memory module in the slot and gently press it down
into place.

The clips on either side of the module will click to secure the
module.

When you turn on the computer, it automatically recognizes

Wont recognize new memory?


First try to reseat the memory, if it is still showing the same amount, then you may have a bad stick of memory, remove both and insert 1 stick into Dimm 1 slot and see if it still registers 894, then put the other in the same slot and see what it registers. Then try in the Dimm2 slot and see if you get a different reading Depending on the manufacturer, it may only show that amount since Windows shows memory different that the memory manufacturer.

Hope this helps.
