Introduction

This guide will demonstrate the process for replacing the RAM in this laptop. This could be useful if your RAM is not working properly or if you would like to upgrade your RAM. This will be one of the easiest replacements in this device. RAM is designed to be replaced and upgraded, so it was made very easy to access. RAM is basically the computer's temporary memory, NOT the computer's storage. One thing to note, this bay may be empty as one stick of RAM is soldered into the motherboard and is not serviceable by the end-user. If it is this stick that is defective, you will need to file an RMA. However if it is the stick in the bay that is defective, then please proceed with this repair guide.

Are you seeing just a plastic circle? That has to be pried off... the screw is underneath.

Hi! The battery have not be removed before this?

Ariel, the battery should be removed but this creates very unnecessary strain and stress on you. This is just an expansion bay, the actual ram is soldered on the motherboard, not serviceable by the end-user. Again, this is an expansion bay so what that means is if no RAM is in the to begin with, the laptop will be fine because there is still RAM directly on the motherboard. This is just so the end-user can add more RAM if they so choose.
