Today's post is going to be a little different, It's a How-To of how to upgrade RAM on your Laptop. In specific, this tutorial we will be doing so on the Acer Aspire R11.

Before purchasing memory for your computer, remember to check if it's compatible.

Installing Memory

First thing is to actually check if your laptop can be unscrewed if not then I would recommend you don't unscrew it. If it is really required then speak to a specialist who knows how to do this sort of thing.

Once unscrewed you should be able to take off the back. Do so very gently.

Once done you should get a good look of what's inside your laptop.

Next thing we need to do is identify the RAM. In this laptop, it is covered by the metal cover that can be very easily removed.

And from the inside, all we need to do is put the metal case back on it.
