Hi everyone,i have just purchased an Acer Ferrari 4005LMi (LXFR405033),it apparently has 2 RAM memory slots containing 512Mb each,i can put a maximum of 2Gb memory in (1 x 1Gb in each slot) the memory type i need is Acer 200 pin PC2700 DDR333 S0D1MM,My question is this please,can i do this myself?,yes i can use a screwdriver but as long as it is relatively simple i can handle that,does anybody have a guide to doing this in Laymans terms please?,and are the above details regarding the memory type needed correct?.
A big thanks in anticipation.
Craig..

To change the ram look at page 5 to see the ram cover (8) and page 37 on how to take out the ram. click here It's a pdf so save it.

you tube. Make sure you unplug the laptop. Take iout the battery. and ewait for it to cool down. If you dont and u ry to replace ram you will burn your fingers, like i hae i the past.

ASlo for godness sake make sure you are grounded using a wrist grounder prefably two attached to something metal stainless steeel like a spread kniife spon or anything that the crocodile clip wil clip onto.

Good luck in your mission.

Don't panic - it's just to make sure there is no staic around which can damage the chips.
