Question about eMachines EZ1601-01 All-in-one PC 18.5' Widescreen Intel Atom N270 1GB DDR2 160GB Intel GMA... PC Desktop
I've heard/read that I can bump the RAM to 2GB, but I'm looking for information on how to open this all in PC (without damaging it). It looks like you have to remove the plastic legs on both sides, but I want to be sure of this first.
Go to the Crucial site. They make memory and their site will scan your PC, then tell you how much memory it will take.
From there, it will also give you an idea of how to open your PC to install the new or additional memory.

From the manufacturer's web-site:
you are correct in the maximum RAM size.
The "product view" pages do not show any "easy" access (i.e., on most laptops, remove one cover to expose an empty RAM slot) to put RAM into an empty DIMM.
So, it seems that a "complete" disassembly will be required. Good luck. Be careful that you don't break anything.

eMachines ET-1641-02W uses an eMachines eCooper computer case,
1) UNPLUG the computer from power.
2) FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions.
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
Relieve your body of Static BEFORE reaching inside your computer,
OR before taking any computer parts out of their antistatic bags, or cartons.
TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case. This action will relieve your body of Static.
IF you leave your computer (For ANY reason) in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again, upon your return.
3) Facing the Front of the computer, the left Side Panel removes.
There are two Thumbscrews you loosen.
(SHOULD just loosen, and not remove. Sometimes the C clips on the Thumbscrews are so loose, the Thumbscrew will come out))
There is a fingergrip molded in the Side Panel.
Pull the Side Panel back by this fingergrip, then bring the top of the Side Panel out, and remove the Side Panel.
There will be cables in your way, and wires.
I lay the computer down on it's side, on a static free clean towel, on a table. Opening of the computer case facing up. A LOT easier to work on.
There are two ram memory slots. They are Black in color, and have white Locks. (Locking 'ears') They are to the Right of the Processor socket.
The ram memory slots have Locking 'ears. These are hinged. The Top is brought to the outside. This brings the ram memory module up out of the ram memory slot, and unlocks the ram memory module.
Handle the ram memory module by the BODY. The Body is everywhere on the ram memory module, except for the gold plated contact pins on the bottom.
The Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.
Note the Side Notches on the ram memory module, and a Locating Notch on the bottom,
The above is an example of DDR Sdram. The eMachines ET-1641-02W Desktop PC, uses DDR2 Sdram.
DDR Sdram has 184 gold plated contact pins. 92 one each side.
DDR2 Sdram has 240 gold plated contact pins. 120 on each side.
The above photo is used for reference of the -> Notches.
Note that the Locating Notch on the bottom is actually off to one side, a little.
It lines up with a Locating Lug in the bottom of the ram memory slot.
The ram memory module can ONLY be installed in one direction.
When the ram memory module is deemed to be installed properly, and tightly, the Locks will have their 'bumps' in the Side Notches.
The Lock's 'bumps' do not fit ->exactly in the Side Notch. Close is good.
When the Lock is brought into the correct position, there will be a click sound.
IF, you use just ONE ram memory module, make SURE it is in Slot 1.
(DIMM 1 on motherboard) This is the ram memory slot that is closest to the Processor.
The Processor reads Slot 1 -> F-I-R-S-T!
[In the 3 years I was an Expert Moderator for Fixya, I have seen a lot of Spam, soliciting, and buddy users. These are users who post a question, that is setup for the 'expert' giving the solution.
(FixYa no longer uses Expert Moderators at present)
I also know about Retrovo, and how they work. You have to pay $$$$ to get the information.
I posted behind you so the next person who views the problem, will indeed have a bonifide solution.
Have a nice day ]

SOURCE: I have purchased two 2Gb Ram sticks that I want to swap out. When I open the eMachine EL1352G computer up it appears as if I must remove the DVD/CD drive to gain access. Is there an easier way than th
If memory serves the optical drive swings out of the way.
I also, (All cables removed), lay a static free towel down on the table, and lay the computer on it's side, on the table. (Opening side up)
[Be SURE to follow Anti-Static Precautions BEFORE reaching inside your unplugged from power computer; and during working on it.
Make sure you align the Locating Notch of the Ram Memory module; with the Locating Lug in the ram memory slot, when installing.
Locks on each end of ram memory slot click, when the ram memory module is correctly installed.
