Dell Latitude D610 laptop has two memory slots available for upgrades.
This model can take up to 2GB RAM total, so you can install up to 1GB module in each slot.
You should use PC2-4200 DDR2-533 SODIMM RAM.
Your computer will work in dual channel mode (recommended) if you install two identical memory modules. In my case, I’m going to install two 1GB PC2-4200 modules.
RAM Slot B can be accessed through the door on the bottom.
Slot A is hidden under the keyboard, so we’ll have to remove it. If your laptop was configured with only one memory module, you’ll find it in the Slot A.
Before you do anything, do not forget to remove the battery.
Let’s remove the keyboard. Insert a flathead screwdriver under the bezel and and carefully lift up it up.
Remove the bezel.
You’ll find two screws securing the keyboard. Remove both screws.
Now carefully lift up the keyboard.
You’ll see the default memory module right above the touch pad buttons. It’s possible to replace it without disconnecting the keyboard.
I will disconnect the keyboard so I can make better pictures for you.
Simply grab the blue tag attached to the cable connector and pull it up.
Now you can remove the keyboard completely.
On the picture below you can see the default memory module installed into the slot A.
In order to remove it, spread latches on both side with your fingers.
The module will pop up at a 30 degree angle.
Now you can pull the default module from the slot and replace it with a new one.
I’m installing a 1GB RAM into this slot.
Finally, install another 1GB module into the slot on the bottom.
Turn on the laptop and you are ready to go!
