  • Power the L455D down and turn it over on a table. Locate the two battery latches near the top of the notebook. Push each latch away from the other one, then pull up on the back of the battery to remove it. Unplug any cables that are currently plugged into the machine.

    Locate the memory module cover, which is just under the battery compartment, and remove the screw holding it in place with your small Philips screwdriver. You will see the current chip in the bottom slot in the memory module.

  • 3

    Hold the replacementRAM chip by the two corners that are away from the metal contacts.

  • 4

    Place the RAM over the second slot, which is located just in front of the slot where your current chip is resting. Align the replacement chip so that the notch along the metal contacts matches up with the key in the RAM slot.

  • 5

    Hold the replacement RAM chip at a 30-degree angle from the computer and slide it into the empty slot. Once the chip is all the way in, press down on it to lock it into place. You will hear a "snap" when the chip is locked in.

    Replace the memory module cover and screw it back into place. Then replace the battery and the cables, turn the laptop over and power it up.

    How do i unregister toshiba satelite hdd1/ssd1 password

    99% of the time if the hard drive has a password on it and the possessor does not know the password, it's a stolen laptop. The original owner put the password on to keep thieves from getting into sensitive data. Sometimes the original owner can set the password on the drive remotely after it was stolen. The drive is locked forever unless the person that put the password on unlocks it.
