~reaches over the desk and grabs my E1505 and flips it over~ Bottom of the machine, depending on year there may be a Windows COA on the panel. Also it maybe difficult to see it but there is a little ram symbol on it or next to the screw that will remove it. On the note of how much the unit will take.
~removes panel~ Both dimm slots are accessible from this panel so no removing the keyboard required.
I stand corrected, after some reading / more research the Dell E1505 will handle upto 4gb of memory with a max of 3.25gb of usable memory. So you can put 2x2gb sticks of ram in the machine and it should work, I haven't tried this my self but it seems others have with success. It was noted that upon installing more than 2gb of ram the machine will look like it won't post right off the bat, but from the contrib of users say waiting 1-2 minutes the machine posted as it was noticing the increase in ram, after that initial boot the machine booted as it should every time thereafter (without delay).
So now to save some money and go and by a 2x2gb kit for mine. I've been waiting to upgrade to 4gb from 2gb.

Every laptop I have worked on in the last 5 years the memory slots have been located on the bottom. Now that's not to say the newer ones may be a little different but then again I haven't worked on many new ones.
My IBM ThinkPad t40/R51 Frankenstein has one underneath the keyboard and one via access panel on the bottom of the case. So I've seen them with a 'hidden' slot under the keyboard.

If it has to do with this system then go ahead and ask. We can work with it here.
I have another question but I don't think this forum is the place for it. Dell can't or won't help me. They only want to sell, sell, sell. And I'm not buying.

When you say nothing works what exactly do you mean? Does IE start and then no way to go to a site?
Is there even a IE that appears at all when you click on it to run?
Does computer stop responding?
