Make sure you get the correct type of memory.

The current memory will be in the screw off bit underneath where the hard drive is

The slot for the new memory is actually under the keyboard and it's a pain to get off, but be careful.

There are about 5 small tabs around the edge of the keyboard, which you have to 'gently' lever to get the keyboard membrane over them.

It then lifts off and you slot the memory in

I have undone the screw underneath the laptop that's labeled KB and have uncliped the 5 retainers around the keyboard however it still feels like something is hold the keyboard down around he middle somewhere.

Did you experience the same ? I don't want to force it and the edges seem free enough but its almost as if there is something else, another screw or something hold the keyboard in place.

Any help would be appreciated.

To get the keyboard off Look under the followings keys F1, F8, Num Lock, Left Hand side of Caps Lock,

Right Hand side of Page Down underneath the Delete and Ctrl Keys as far as I can remember

Why not just put a 2 GB stick in back slot rather than risk breaking the front or keyboard. Its so annoying they put the second slot on the front. You can get one from ebay for around 20 quid.
