This guide shows the reader how to replace the RAM in their Acer Aspire R15.
Before starting this guide, it is important to ensure the device is unplugged and powered off in order to avoid doing serious damage to the electronics.
Disconnect all power from the laptop and turn over so the bottom is facing you.
Remove the twelve 07.mm Phillips #0 screws from the back cover.
Work a plastic opening tool underneath and around the perimeter of the bottom cover.
Once unclipped, remove the bottom cover.
Lift up the protective covering away from the RAM using tweezers, or your fingers.
Two clips secure the RAM module in place, one on each side. Using your fingers, spread the clips away from the RAM module.
Lift the RAM module to an angle of about 30 degrees and slide it out.
