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.

Need to install memory on a veriton Z290G desktop but dont know how to open the computer


1 Turn off your computer and all the peripherals connected to it before
opening it. Then unplug all cables from the power outlets.

2 Place your computer on a flat, steady surface. If your computer is in the

vertical position, rotate the plastic stabilizers and lay your computer on its

side.

3 Turn the screws counterclockwise to release the cover.

4 Hold the sides of the cover with both hands.
5 Slide it back about an inch and then gently lift it upward to detach it.

6 Remove the side panel.

7 Locate the memory DIMM socket on the mainboard.

8 Press the holding clips on both sides of the memory DIMM socket outward

to release the memory DIMM (a). Gently pull the memory DIMM out of the
socket (b).

9 Align the memory DIMM with the socket. Press the memory DIMM into
the socket until the clips lock onto the memory DIMM.

The memory DIMM sockets are slotted to ensure proper

installation. If you insert a memory DIMM but it does not fit easily

into the socket, turn the memory DIMM around and try to insert it
again.

10 Align the cover's hinges to the housing frame; then gently push it in to

slide it back into place.
11 Secure the cover with the screws.

Wont to upgrade graphic card my p.c has 2gig max ram in it wonts should i upgrade to to preform its best cheers mike


Depends on what kind of hardware you have
-Memory- 2 gb ram is "ok" if you use windows XP but if you have Vista or Windows 7 you should have a minimum of 4gb ram.
-Processor- if you have a Dual core processor you are ok, if you have a p4 or p3 you dont want to waste money on a new graphics card because it will not help you get better games, your processor and memory will slow you down instead.
So my advice is, if you have a OK computer, go ahead with buying a new graphics card if you computer is old and slow, DONT buy a new card! put your money on +2gb ram instead (cheap,and gives you more benefits) or maybe buy an "upgrade package" with new motherboard-memory-processor.

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

I bought a 2gig kit of memory from Dell for a precision 450 and it's only seeing 1gb in the Bios. Upgraded the Bios and it's still only seeing 1gb


You memory slots have primary and secondary slots. Switch the old memory with the new one and put the 1Gb in the secondary slot.

Wont boot 2 windows xp home when 2 gig memory installed,works with 1 gig,tried both slots with both 1 gig sticks.Screen goes black.


Seems the memory is not comatable with the motherboard. Replace the old memory and visit http://www.crucial.com, they have a scanner tool which will confirm what mem can be installed.

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.
