How to Install a 2GB RAM Upgrade in a Samsung N140

Installation is straight forward and the process is designed so that owners can carry this out themselves.

If you have any doubts or concerns then please phone the official Samsung support line of speak to your supplier. If you are happy to proceed then you need to:

  • Carefully unscrew the access hatch on the underside of your netbook, ensure you have the correct screwdriver so as not to damage the screw itself
  • Remove the hatch.  Some owners have had to use moderate force to get the hatch open, but as always watch out for excessive pressure
  • Pull the clips outwards and the old RAM chip will pop up.  Store this away carefully.
  • Insert the new 2gb RAM chip and clip it securely into place.
  • Replace the hatch and you should now have a 2gb N140!
