I have a Sony PCG V505 DC1P and I want to
open up and upgrade the memory.
How do I open the back to access the
memory? It has 2 panels, one is very easy to
open, the other seems imposible at the

I've read that my laptop might have faulty
memory chip. The laptop battery light flicks
on and off (replaced old battery) and the unit
shuts downs and won't start?

Your memory ports are located under the keypad.
Remove the battery and do not plug in your power pack.
The 2 screws in the center should release the keypad.
With the keypad out you can remove the memory and replace up to 2g.
I don't know about your battery light - replace your battery, they're cheap enough on ebay.
If that doesn't work, remove the smaller back panel and check the hard drive connections.
I've had the V505ECP for 6 years and it's still a great computer. Good Luck!

on the keyboard side, I don't see two screws to release the
keyboard? Any other ideas that you could suggest?
