Memory Slots for V2085

Postby srbhiscock » Mon Apr 16, 2007 7:25 pm

I have read a few threads about the location of memory slots on Pro V series. I have found 1 slot under the back panel of my v2085 which has been duely upgraded to 1024Mb, but I would like to upgrade the other slot from the 256Mb that is currently there.......however.......I can't find it! Is it under the keyboard oris it not accessible? :?:

For future reference, the other memory module is under the keyboard.....it has the 256Mb stick in it! I followed the guide to get there (keyboard was not secured with a screw, just clips) and found the slot under the cover as described. 2Gb RAM here I come! :P

How exactly to remove the keyboard

Hi srbhiscock,

You write "I followed the guide to get there". What guide do you mean. And can you please tell where to find this guide?

Thanks!!

Well I can't download the manual from Fujitsu and I can't see how to get under the keyboard without breaking it. Why is installing RAM always such a hassle??

Ah! Found a similar post elsewhere on this forum about a different V2xxx which helped! This works for V2085:

The first slot is easy to find, it's underneath the big access panel on the bottom.

It was the location of and access to the second one that was causing me problems, and I couldn't find any info on the definitive answer. It's under the keyboard.

Access is easy and doesn't require any unscrewing of the case or any securing screws on the board. At the top of the keyboard at either side you can see a small gap in the case, where there's a cover for the speakers and the hinges, this can be prized off with a thin bladed screwdriver. With the screen folded out flat, the keyboard slides out backwards.

What you then see is a small metal cover held in with two screws, one at the left (silver in mine) and one at the top (black). Remove these and the panel and the memory slot is underneath. I have to say that I couldn't get the small black screw loosened at all but the metal cover is very thin and flexible and I simply bent it out of it's holding slots and bent it back in again.
