pavilion 17-g148dx

Product Name: pavilion 17-g148dx

I just bought pavilion 17-g148dx and need to add more RAM to it. I was told by a sales person that pavilion 17-g148dx is upgradable to 32GB RAM. How do I remove the back cover? OR is it the keyboard which I need to remove?? I removed 22 screws and CD drive but the cover still does not come off. I also noticed that the hard drive is attached to the upper panel where the keyboard is

I do not want to damage the product in any way to upgrade RAM.

If I am unable to to add more RAM, I will have to return this laptop to the store for full refund. Please provide steps to remove the keyboard panel or back cover.

Re: pavilion 17-g148dx



I would like to say 2 things:


1. The salesperson did not say the true,

2. This is a non-users upgradable RAM. Please look at page 1 of its Maintenance and Service Guide on the following link:




If you wish, page 41 will show you how but this will void warranty.
