How do i find the memory slot on my Advent Quantum Q100?


The Advent Quantum Q100 laptop has one Ram memory slot.
The Maximum Total Amount of Ram Memory is 2GB.
It uses SO-DIMM ram memory that is DDR2 at 667 MegaHertz. (667MHz)
Also known as PC2-5300 {SO-DIMM style}

The Ram Memory slot is under the Keyboard.

Past this point I am at a loss to describe how to remove the Keyboard.

1) Either you have to remove the LED cover above the Keyboard, and below the LCD screen to access screws which hold the Keyboard in place, (Computer off, and ALL power removed. AC adapter {Charger}, and Battery),

OR,

2) The LED cover (Power On button, LED's, etc, are in the cover), has to be removed, and there may be one, or two screws coming up from the bottom of the laptop, which hold the Keyboard in place.

Regards,
joecoolvette

or
2GB 667MHz DDR2 Non-ECC CL6 SO DIMM

IBM instructions for installing memory modules is that they must be done sequentially starting at DIMM 1. When removing them to upgrade should I then remove DIMM 2 first, and then remove DIMM 1, and...


It shouldn't matter what order you remove and replace the RAM cards in. The instructions are saying to populate Slot 1, Slot 2, and then other slots in order; don't skip any slots, in other words.

You possibly have a RAM issue. If you have never done a RAM upgrade to your computer, then eventually most PC's have RAM issues with the more you load programs, download music, and run other processes. Most computers come with basic RAM which is about 1Gig. You can install up to 3 or 4Gigs of RAM on laptops.

You may purchase the RAM from Best Buys, Microcenter, Radio Shack, or any local computer parts store.

Here are instrutions on how to replace the RAM once you have purchased the needed RAM.
You may also need to check your hard drive memory to see if you are getting close to the limit or if your memory is already full. If you download alot of music or alot of programs then this is possibility.

  1. Turn off the computer; then disconnect the AC adapter and all cables from the computer.
  2. Close the computer display, and turn it over.
  3. Remove the battery.
  4. Loosen the screw on the memory slot cover; then remove the cover
If the SO-DIMM is already in the memory slot, remove it to make room for the new one by pressing out on the latches on both edges of the socket at the same time. Be sure to save it for future use.
5. Find the notch on the contact edge side of the SO-DIMM.
Note: To avoid damaging the SO-DIMM, do not touch its contact edge.

6. With the notched end of the SO-DIMM toward the contact edge side of the socket, insert the SO-DIMM into the socket at an angle of about 20 degrees (1); then press it firmly (2).

7. Pivot the SO-DIMM downward until it snaps into place.

8. Make sure that the card is firmly fixed in the slot and does not move easily.

9. Replace the memory slot cover by aligning the back side of the cover first and then tightening the screw.

Note:
When you have added or upgraded an SO-DIMM, do not use your computer until you have closed the cover. Never use the computer with the cover open.

10. Put the battery back in place, turn the computer over again, and reconnect the cables.

  2. Close the computer display, and turn it over.
  3. Remove the battery.
  4. Remove the keyboard.
  5. To replace the SO-DIMM, refer to the procedure given earlier.
  6. Reinstall the keyboard.
  7. Put the battery back in place, turn the computer over again, and reconnect the cables.
Verifying the install was successful
Verifying the install was successful
  1. Turn the computer on.
  2. While the "To interrupt normal startup, press the blue Access IBM button" message is displayed at the lower-left of the screen, press the Access IBM button. The ThinkVantage Rescue and Recovery screen opens.
  3. Click Access BIOS. The System Restart Required window is displayed.
  4. Click Yes. The computer restarts, and the BIOS Setup Utility screen opens. The "Installed memory" item shows the total amount of memory installed in your computer.

    For example, if your computer has 256 MB of memory and you install a 256-MB SO-DIMM in it, the quantity shown in "Installed memory" should be 512 MB.
Lastly, you will need to check to see if you possibly have a virus/spyware on your computer. You will need to log into your virus program and run a system scan "Scan Now". Once it runs and if it detects any threats, be sure to have them removed/deleted. Once you have them removed/deleted, restart your computer.

I hope this was helpful and thank you for contacting the experts.

Acer travelmate 2003lc will not boot with new ram


512MB (FT64MSD64V3F)
200 Pin Dimm - SDRAM - 2.5V - DDR - PC2700 (PC-333) - Non-ECC

is the correct type of RAM for your laptop.
Have you tried booting with all combinations.

512 in slot 1 --- Boots
move same dimm to slot 2 (on it's own) and try booting.
boot with 256mb in slot 1 and known to be good 512 in number 2

This laptop should allow up to 2GB RAM. So I don't belive it is an issue with the mother board not seeing the amout of RAM. I think it could either be flaky dimm or your slot 2 is damaged

Reg ram upgradation


Each memory slot on the C555NR can support a maximum of 1GB of RAM. There are actually 2 slots, but only one is easily accessible to you. By upgrading both the primary and secondary DIMMs, you could achieve a total of 2GB of memory but you would have to remove the 512mb chip that is already installed and replace it with 1GB (+1GB in the expansion slot as well.)

If you don't plan on taking the computer to a professional to be serviced, you will probably only want to upgrade the memory in the secondary slot located under the memory cover on the underside of the computer. It can handle a 1GB SODIMM.

FYI the memory is:
200 Pin DDR2-533 PC2-4200 SODIMM

Good luck!
