    I have a Toughbook CF-18 and would like to either upgrade the existing memory or add more to enhance its performance. The operators manual doesn't provide a procedure for accomplishing this. Has anyone tried this? How do I gain access to the memory in order to swap it out? My guess is that it is tucked away under the speaker.

    Okay, so, I'm going to answer my own question for the benefit of all who either didn't know or, like me, were too squeemish to give it a try. So, I swapped out the memory in my other laptop (a 1g for a 512 PC3200) and had no plans for the 512. Finally went with my gut instinct and removed the 4 corner screws securing the speaker panel. NOTE: use a really small cross tip. Anyway, I removed the panel expecting to see a 256 DIMM installed. Low and behold - an empty 200-pin spot asking to be filled. So, I lined up the module, snapped it in, turned it on, and the computer recognized it. Afterward, I checked the operators manual and its supposed to take a PC2100 module. As a side note, the operators manual DOES show where the memory module goes if I had just read through it thoroughly. That's why I'm a newbie.
