Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook ?

I wish to add more RAM to my laptop but cannot get cover openbehi

\015 I wish to add more RAM to my laptop but cannot get the cover open even after taking out all the screws.The laptop is an ACER Aspire 5315 series model no.ICL50. I'm making the assumption that the memory port(?)is somewhere behind the larger of the 2 base covers.\015

Answers :

The ram is under a base cover and the cover is usually indicated by small rectangles imprinted in the plastic. I will send you the link to the service manual that will show everything you need to know about your laptop.
\015\012 The ram, wireless card, heat-sink and processor are all under the largest of the panels. The smaller panel is where the hard drive lives and then there is the battery.
Yes, it is the largest panel under the laptop, I have a couple of Acer laptops. Sometimes even if all the screws are out, it will feel like you are going to snap something if you pull any harder. As long as you are careful, I use a small flat screwdriver to gently lift the snaps around the cover. Here is a photo of your laptop with that cover removed, notice the ram at the bottom of the picture. http://www.cyfinity.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/aspire5315wrongmove.jpg
