Overview

Users may have a need to remove and install memory on their Latitude E6420. This may be due to upgrading memory size or to replace defective modules. We would like to demonstrate the process in which memory is replaced by the user and parts are needed to be returned to Dell.

Removing the Access Panel

To gain access to the memory modules, the bottom access panel will need to be removed. This will require a Phillips head screw driver to remove 7 screws (Figure 1).

Removing and Installing the Memory Modules

Warning: To avoid damaging the memory modules, handle them by their edges and avoid touching pins and contacts.
  1. Once the access panel is removed, the memory modules should be seen towards the lower center of the notebook.
  2. The memory modules are held into place by metal securing clips on each end.
  3. Carefully spread apart the securing clips on each end of the memory modules until the memory pops up.
  4. Remove the memory from the system.
Note: If there is a second memory module installed, repeat steps 2 and 3.
