Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-A690 Notebook ?

Sony A690 Memory Location

\015 I guess it is only a problem because I can't find it, but I want to upgrade from 1 gig to 2 gigs of memory on my Sony VAIO VGN-A690. It is upgradeable to 2 gigs, 1 gig X 2 slots. On the back panel there is a cover where the memory is located. When I pulled it off, there is only one memory slot. Where is the other memory slot located?\015

Answers :

I have the same problem as mentioned. My problem though... having found out that the second memory slot is under the keyboard... is how to safely access it. It's not obvious how to remove the keyboard.
