Question about Acer TravelMate 2300 Notebook

1 Answer

Memory upgrade I want to upgrade my memory chip on my laptop, I have upgraded one some while ago which is in a small compartment on the underneath of the laptop. I know the second chip is underneath the keyboard without straight forward acess, I once found instructions on the Internet on how to change this chip, but can no longer find them now that I want to do the change. If you can give me any advice on how to do this it would be much appreciated. The product is a Acer 2026 not the product I have been forced to choose below. Thanks... Superchunx.

Generally the first step is to remove the plastic that holds the screen in place. Usually on laptops this allows you to remove the keyboard. On the back of the laptop you should see some screws. remove them and then try to unlatch the plastic humps that hold the screen the place. You should be able to move the screen and then unlatch the plastic covering that holds the keyboard. It's pretty straight forward from there and you shouldn't even need directions, the screws will be in clear view. Peter

    My Lifebook N3510 will not Boot


    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

    I have a toshiba satellite 1900-803 - when I open up the memory compartment on the back I can only find 1 slot which I have alread used to upgrade the memory to 768 MB. Where is the 2nd slot so I can...


    It is possible that the other memory slot is on the opposing board side, and already occupied by system default memory. It is also possible that the ram is also located by the wireless card port. Open each of the underside compartments and see if there is an additional memory port, Trial and error is the best approach.

    Need instruction on how to install memory upgrade

    First you have to determine whether this model can support 4Gb or memory.

    All laptops use the same memory. SODIMM (Small Outline Dual Inline Memory Module) chips are readily available. It's actually quite easy to upgrade. First remove the small piece of the casing that covers the top part of the keyboard. This should just snap off. Then you should find some screws holding the top of the keyboard to the case. Once you remove these, the keyboard will easily pop out. Carefully disconnect the ribbon cable connector leading to the keyboard. Then you should have access to the RAM chips.

    Therefore, the only tool you really need is a small phillips screwdriver. Be careful when handling the chips.

    Laptop memory upgrade

    Your Laptop is using DDR2 Memory, just find your nearest retailer that sells memory and go buy you a chip, ur laptop ships with 1024mb of ram as standard, if you want to get a decent boost pretty cheap then i would just buy another 1gig chip and put it in beside the one already there.

    Not sure what your system maxes out at but the average is 4gig of ram so you could try a couple of 2 gig chips if you feel you need that much ram

    Memory upgrade


    What do you mean by you cant get it to stay in place.

    Usually you put it in at a 45 degree angle and press gently until it goes in no more, then you lower the chip until it clicks in on the board.

    Hope this helps.

    Most newer laptops have easy access to their memory slots, I'd recommend you got to the manufacturer's website and look for the maximum memory your system will allow. If you look at the bottom side of your laptop, you may see several small covers with just one or two screws in them. One of them will be where the memory slots are. It is not uncommon for the laptop to have a very small 'memory chip' icon on the cover. Be aware that many laptops only support two memory chips, and may have both filled already. For example, if laptop has 512MB memory, it may have two x 256MB chips in it. Which would mean, that to upgrade to 1GB memory, you would have to purchase two x 512MB chips. or one 1GB chip.
