    My new M400 has come with 512Mb of RAM. According to kingston.com it can be expanded to 2Gb. I can see how to replace the HDD, but not the memory.
    Is it under the keyboard?

    Many Thanks.

    Hi

    The memory slots you will find under the keyboard.
    Before you will start the upgrade procedure you should shut down the notebook and remove the AC adapter cable and the battery.

    1.) Slip you finger under a notch at the end of the keyboard brace and lift up to relase latches and remove the keyboard brace.
    2.) Remove the two screws securing the keyboard
    3.) Lift up the back of the keyboard, rotate it toward you and lay in face down on the palm rest. (do not touch the keys)
    4.) Remove two screws and take off the memory module cover.
    5.) Fit the memory modules connectors into the socket at about 45 degree angle and push down until latches on either side snap into place. Align thenotch of the memory modules with that of the memory slot and gently insert the module into the slot.

    Hi

    Nice instruction Eldorado! However the detailed information about the memory replacing procedure you will find in the user manual of the Portege M400.
    Chapter 8 - optional devices.

    Regards
