I decided to increase the RAM on this laptop from 512Mb to 2Gb. I've successfully installed a 1Gb board
into the space on the outer rear case of the laptop, however I can't work out how to install the second
board which goes somewhere under the keyboard!

I've got the keyboard out of the machine, but wary now of what to do next,as there is no obvious place
for the second board to go!!

Please help, PB manual only shows how to dismantle laptop, not where things like RAM fit!!!

There is a video installation guide that may be of help. You will need to scroll down the page till you see "Learn More" and click on the "Installations Help" tab. Due to the slow speed of my dial up connection it would take close to an hour for this video to load, so I haven't seen it all. Hope it helps.

The video can be viewed here.

Killerx525,

I edited the post to add the instructions for finding the video before I saw your post.

I'm sorry people, I've seen the various replies to my plea, but they seem to refer to OKMEMORY.com's site, which shows a video
of two RAM boards being fitted into the rear outer case of the laptop.

I've succesfully installed one of the boards into the slot in, approximately this space, however the other one has to go
underneath the keyboard; there's a space for it there and there alone, apparently!!!!

Appreciate your help folks, suggestions welcome

Whacko1066,

To add to my previous post, at the astounding speed of 26.4Kbps it would have take close to an hour to be able to view this video which I'm not willing to invest my time in. My apologies if the video was not for your specific make and model.

I may be useful if you can post a picture of the area where the second module is suppose to be located.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Sorry folks I've been given some bum information and been looking for something that doesn't exist!

When I first looked for info on upgrading the RAM I read somewhere the second RAM bay was under the keyboard.

I was just about to take a photo of the area under the keyboard as dc3 suggested when I looked at it and thought
"Why the hell would you hide a RAM slot under all that!"

I then went back to the original RAM slot on the underside and studied it more closely, and realised there is a second
space for an additional RAM module under the first, which was why I hadn't spotted it!!

Feel such an idiot now, wasted all that time looking for something that wasn't there!!

Anyway, all done now, thanks to you all for your input and assistance, much appreciated
