    Hey guys - this thing has a solid back on it. Anyone know where the RAM is located on this model?

    If its in the back behind the panel, how do you get the panel off? There are, literally, 24 screws on the back of it - some are shallow, some deep set. Any idea which ones to unscrew to remove back panel?

    Thanks

    I don't see an Acer Aspire 5248 on their website, you sure thats the correct model number?

    In any case most of the Acer's have one or more smaller panels on the bottom of the laptop that come off separately, and there's likely a picture of RAM(kinda looks like a saw) next to the one that provides access the memory. Just remove the screws for that one panel and lift up where its notched in.

    Also, there's likely the a manual installed on the computer that may show you how to do it.

    According to your description and wording, I'm not sure if that computer is a desktop or a laptop/notebook. Which one is it?

    You also need to confirm the exact model number.
