    LAPTOP EXPERTS
    I read the instructions for installing RAM on the Dell C810 Laptop, but am having trouble understanding them. I don't understand what they mean by disengaging the metal tabs. I've removed the screw, but the RAM cover still won't come off. The manual for this model is available by googling "Dell C810" "manual". I've had to service desktops in the past, so I know how to install RAM and how important it is to remove power. Do I have to remove the battery, too? The manual says that I do, but this also entails removing the keyboard and display.

    In your experience, how different is it from installing RAM on desktop? Do any of you guys remove the battery before installing RAM or do you go strictly by the manual when installing RAM?

    Most laptops just have you remove a cover on the back and some have you install it under the keyboard. Maybe the cover has some additional metal tabs or clips that have to be retracted in order to remove the cover. I really don't think you need to remove the reserve battery. I never even take out the main power supply battery to change memory.
