Where is the slot of RAM in Toshiba M500

rb20e, 2010/07/18 23:40

under the keyboard. lift the black tab on the top of the keyboard - the corners have two tabs, start there and work your way around(this should just flip out).

undo two screws for the keyboard, then flip the keyboard out

undo two more screws for the ram slots and walla !!

How to solve the problem regarding the sound. The all software under windows says that the sound device is not installed

I've installed Ubuntu with great success on my Toshiba M500, Everything worked out of the box except bluetooth, which I'm still working on. It runs real quick too. Windows on Virtual box boots faster than on native hardware.
