First turn over your laptop and remove the 2 really small phillips head srews. Then flip your computer back over and push the screen back and use a small flat head screwdriver to put in the small plastic notch where you lift the cover at the right front that holds down the keyboard, just below the screen is where you will see the small plastic panel that holds down the screen. And then you can remove the keyboard and you will see DIMM A memory slot cover. And just the reverse to put everything back together.

Need to reset the bios password on my dell xps m140 laptop.


You would have to reset the whole bios to default which maybe something you cannot do. The only other method would would be to take the laptop apart and remove the battery that keeps the motherboard BIOS memory powered. It should look like a large watch battery. Remove for 5 to 10 seconds, and replace. Then put the laptop back together and that should reset the BIOS, password and all.

One memory module, ('Stick') slot is located on the bottom of the laptop, in the Memory Compartment. (Has two Philips screws on the cover, and is located close to the battery release button)

The other memory module goes under the keyboard.

Here's how to replace them from Dell Support,

2007 DELL XPS M140 LAPTOP WILL LOCK DUE TO 256M MEMORY STICK


Normally you boot up the laptop without a memory stick in the USB port.
Check your BIOS settings for the boot up device order.
You should have the hard drive as the first boot device, you can have the CD as the first boot device and the hard drive as the second boot device.
You should not have the USB port as the first boot device.

Push the front edge of the board down until the retention clips snap into place. Then replace the cover

My Dell C610 won't reconize the second stick of 256 mb memory


As the computer boots, it detects the additional memory and automatically updates the system configuration information
where did you get the memory?
If it is in properly and does't work,it is either bad or the wrong part number for your Dell C610

Memory slots?


I found the solution to roger2 and my own problem. The secondary memory add-on slot is on the bottom of the unit, and can be accessed by removing one screw and the slot cover. The other, main memory slot is actually located underneath the keyboard. You should shut down the computer completely, unplug the power plug, and also remove the laptop battery before installing memory. Also, it may void your warranty if you mess around inside of your laptop, so please keep this in mind. You will need to take a very thin flat head screwdriver to gently pry up the panel above the F1-F12 keys. The panel is the entire plastic piece covering the speakers that has the power on, play, stop, ff, rw buttons on it. I used a very thin and flat hair clip that I found laying around to pry up the edges starting from the Pause/Break key moving left towards the ESC key. The screen lid has to be opened all the way for the piece to be completely removed. Once that is taken off, you will see two small screws holding the keyboard in place. Remove these two screws and gently pull out the thin ribbon cable connecting the keyboard to the laptop. The ribbon cable is located directly underneath the spacebar, so move slowly and carefully when removing the keyboard so as not to damage anything. In the center of the exposed area, there is a sort of rectangular metal cover with two screws holding it in place. The one that is about the same size as the slot cover on the other memory slot is the correct one. Remove the screws and open the metal cover. Underneath is the other memory slot. After you install the other memory stick, if you have 4 GB of total RAM, you should know that in 32-bit operating systems, Windows will only be able to use approximately 3.0-3.5GB of RAM. This is because of a limitation of 32 Bit Windows operating systems, and not because of the RAM itself. Only 64-bit operating systems will be able to use all 4 GB. On my system for example, I have the same Toshiba M105-S3041 laptop as you do, running Windows XP Home with two 2 GB sticks, and My Computer properties shows that I have 2.99 GB memory.
