Hidden RAM slot (Dell laptop)

Anyone know where the hidden memory slot for an Inspiron 2650 is? Or how I go about getting to it?

Neighbor wanted me to add RAM to his computer. I upped it from 128MB to 384MB, but would like to get it to 512MB. Problem is, according to Crucial's site one of the slots is apparantly for Dell techs only.

I doubt it is impossible to get to, only difficult.
The irony of the information age is that we can't necessarily trust all the information.

If I remember correctly it's under the keyboard ... check the manual I think it will show the location.

if that's true, you should be able to take out the screws from the bottom labeled "K" to lift up the keyboard.

that's the way it is on my 8100 (no hidden slots on mine).

To replace the memory module under the EMI shield, perform the procedure for removing the EMI shield. Then replace the memory module.


EMI Shield
NOTICE: Disconnect the computer and any attached devices from electrical outlets, and remove any installed battery.
NOTICE: To avoid ESD, ground yourself by using a wrist grounding strap or by touching an unpainted metal surface on the computer.
NOTICE: Read "Preparing to Work Inside the Computer" before performing the following procedure.

1. Remove the keyboard.

2. Remove the two M2.5 x 5-mm screws that secure the display-feed flex cable to the system board.

NOTICE: When reconnecting the display-feed flex cable connector to the system board, push down on the top left and right ends of the connector. Pressing on the center of the connector may damage resistors and compromise EMI protection in the computer.

3. Pull up on the pull tab that is attached to the display-feed flex cable connector to remove the connector from the system board.

4. Remove the three M2.5 x 12-mm screws that secure the EMI shield to the bottom case, and pull the EMI shield out of the bottom case.
