How to perform a memory upgrade on the HP 2133/2140 Mini-Note PC
James Hopkin has worked in the Australian computer industry since 1987. He founded Upgradeable.com in 1999 as an independent online source for computer memory upgrades. From day one the Upgradeable way has been to help computer users easily upgrade their systems.
Before you begin the installation, it's worth considering backing up any critical files in the event of a problem occurring. DO NOT install the memory while the computer is in standby or hibernation mode. Ensure that the system is completely powered down.
This is simply done to remove any static electricity from your body so that accidental zaps don't damage your memory modules. While your computer is still plugged into the wall, touch a metal part of your computer. If you leave your computer you will need to ground yourself again. Alternatively, you can invest in an anti-static strap and clip yourself to a grounded piece of metal.
Once the computer is completely shutdown, remove all plugs and the power cable from the computer. As you are upgrading a notebook it is also important to remove the battery.
Always keep the memory modules in their anti-static bag until you are ready to begin the installation. Handle the modules only by the edges and don't touch the gold pins. No tools are required to remove or fit memory modules and using tools can cause damage to the modules.
Remove the battery
1. Turn the computer upside down on a flat surface, with the battery bay towards you.
2. Slide the battery release latches (1) to release the battery.
3. Remove the battery (2) from the computer.
Remove the keyboard
1. Remove the three Phillips PM2.0×3.0 screws that secure the keyboard to the computer.
2. Turn the computer display-side up, with the front towards you.
3. Open the computer as far as possible.
4. Lift the rear edge of the keyboard (1) until it rests at an angle, and then slide it back (2) until it rests on the display assembly.
5. Release the zero insertion force (ZIF) connector (1) to which the keyboard cable is attached, and disconnect the keyboard cable (2) from the system board.
6. Remove the keyboard.
Reverse this procedure to install the keyboard.
Installing the memory module
1. Locate the memory slot once the keyboard has been removed.
2. To replace an existing memory module, spread both clips on either side of the memory slot to release it. To remove the memory module from the slot, hold it by the edges and slide it out at a 45 degree angle.
3. To install the new memory module, hold the module at a 45 degree angle and align the notch on the memory module with the notch located on the memory slot.
4. Gently push the upgrade in and then down until the clips on both sides click to lock the upgrade in place.
5. Make sure the upgrade is firmly in the slot and that it's not moving. Otherwise, reinstall the upgrade by repeating steps 2 to 4.
You're done! Once you have closed your computer and reattached all the accessories that were connected, it's time to switch it on. No software or settings will need to be changed as the computer detects the memory upgrade automatically.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
