Most likely, there are some screws on the back of the case. Unscrew them, and pull the casing towards you (when the front is facing away from you).

My compaq dx2450 wont register ram and its only about 8 months old i bought direct from hp but they wont help i really need to upgrade my ram


try adding one ram stick upgrade at a time, while leaving one original in the system till it boots and recognises the increase. repeat until finished adding all the new ram. if these measures dont work, its possible you have purchased ram that is not matching to the upgradable standards of your board. its important when adding ram to insure you match the ram speed with your replacements upgrade.

How do you open a compaq presario sr1630nx computer to install memory upgrades


Viewing the back of your computer, you will see a large thumb screw, on the right side of the computer case.

It's to the right of that round ventilation opening. (Round shape with multiple holes in it)
Unscrew the thumb screw to the Left, to loosen it.

The side panel that the thumb screw is in, pulls back towards the rear of the computer.
If you look, there is a place to put your fingers at the end of the side panel.
(Raised 'Hump' in the sheet metal of the panel)

Hold the top of the computer case with one hand, pull the side panel back with the other hand.

NOTE*
The computer MUST be unplugged from power before proceeding!

Not only is there a possible issue for Your safety, but also the computer's!
You will fry out the Ram Memory stick/s if you remove, or install with the computer plugged into power.

Also,......there is an Anti-Static issue that needs to be addressed, BEFORE you reach inside your computer

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static will fry out the hardware components inside a computer.
(In a Flash!)

Work on a table. Computer unplugged from power, computer case open. TOUCH the metal frame of the computer case BEFORE you reach inside.

TOUCH the metal frame Before, you take those ram sticks out of their protective antistatic bags.

Should you get up for any reason, walk away, then return, Touch the metal frame again.

Refrain from touching the gold plated contact pins, on the bottom of the ram stick.
You can handle the ram stick anywhere, but on those contact pins.
The ram stick is coated with a see-through plastic.
The contact pins are not.

Should you need advice on how to remove, and install ram memory, please state so in a comment. (Top right of page)

I just upgraded from 2 mps up too 8, and I bought more memory from HP, will this speed up my pc?


Depending on what is the choke point on your performance, the answer is most likely, yes it will be faster.
If you were being limited by your Internet connection, then the 2 to 8 upgrade will help.
If you had minimal RAM in the system, then upgrading there will help.
If you have a low end video card, that my be a limiting factor, same with a slower processor (Celeron Vs Pentium 4 for example)
Other limiting factors can be the amount of hard drive free space and HDD speed and virtual memory settings & performance settings of the operating system

keep in mind that if your computer only has two slots and they are already used by your 256MB , that you will have to replace these with larger capacity ram chips.
