Having problems with your Compaq Presario Notebook ?

I'm trying to upgrade memory in a compaq presario m2000 laptop. Was told it would be obvious and easy but looks tough to me. Can you help?


Answers :

1. Save your work and close all open applications.

2. Shut down the notebook.
If you are unsure whether the notebook is off or in
hibernation, turn the notebook on and then shut it down
through the operating system.

3. Disconnect all external devices connected to the notebook.

4. Disconnect the notebook from external power.

5. Remove the battery pack.

6. Turn the notebook upside down.

7. Loosen the 2 memory compartment screws (1), and then lift
up and remove the memory compartment cover (2).

8. Remove a memory module.
To remove a memory module:

a. Pull away the retention clips on each side of the
module 1. (The module tilts upward.)

b. Grasp the edges of the module and gently pull the module
out of the memory slot 2.

c. To protect a memory module after removal, place it in an
electrostatic-safe container.

To insert a memory module:

a. Align the keyed (notched) edge of the module with the
keyed area in the memory slot 1.
If you are inserting a single memory module into a vacant
memory compartment, insert the module into the lower
slot. (The following illustration shows a memory module
being inserted into the second slot of a memory
compartment that already contains a memory module.)

b. With the module at a 45-degree angle from the surface of
the memory compartment, press the module into the
memory slot until it is seated 2.

c. Push the module downward until the retention clips snap
into place 3.

9. To close the memory compartment, align the tabs on the
memory compartment cover with the cover slots on
the notebook, and then slide the cover over the memory
compartment until it is seated 1.

10. Tighten the 2 memory compartment screws 2.

11. Replace the battery pack, reconnect the notebook to external
power, and then restart the notebook.


Hope this helps. If you need anything else, don't hesitate to ask. Also, here is the manual for your machine with more instructions. Pretty handy.

Happy Holidays!
