Depending on the brand and model:

  • if it is a laptop, the memories would be inside/under a lid/panel cover normally held in place by a screw or two at the bottom of the unit;
  • if it were a desktop, then it would have locking screws at the back, a latch or a snap on lock.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post the brand and model, back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

There is an exhaust switch on the front of the unit. (open or closed position). When should each be used?

exhaust when you want to change air inside room more than you want cooling and dehumid efficiency. It ports air to outside, to be replaced by air from the outside (often from elsewhere in house, rather than via the AC unit). Does that answer it?

Hi sir =)

  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from or
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    I want to increase ram, what do I get

    First, you have to find out the max of ram that you can add to your pc. Then go to the website and run a test where it will tell you what memory and how much you can add. If you decide to purchase the memory and after you recieved , open the case and locate the empty slop where the memory is going to be install. It should be the small slots not the white big ones. Then carefully open the case from the memory and then put i on the slot of the pc. Turn the pc on and then see if it recognize it

    You will have to pry off the lens CAREFULLY using a small screwdriver. There are two (or more) little plastic protrusions on each long side of the lens which fit into the casement. Look for very small slots along the side of the lens to insert the blade of the screwdriver. You can ease the casement away from the lens enough to get it to pop out. Re-inserting it is the same, but probably easier.
    Gently, give it a try.
    Hope this helps you.

    I need to add space to my compaq presario desk top. i don't know how to on this computer. the model# SR5034X

    If you want to increase cpu speed so you need to increase RAM memory.
    You can fix it on motherbord of desktop cpu.
    But if you have low space on disk storage partition so you can add space to desktop with 2 method.
    (1) you can add harddisk to desktop cpu with sata or IDE .SATA harddisk is best if your motherbord support SATA.
    You can add harddisk as you like for example 80 GB or 160 Gb.
    (2) If you want to add RAM memory for speed reson you can purchase new RAm and fix it in memory module slot on motherbord.
    There is 2 type on
    RAM in currently.
    DDR1 and DDR2

    you can add RAM memory like 512 MB or 1GB or more.

    Need to add RAM


    Located here is the actual specifications of your W3052.

    The DDR means "double data rate", SDRAM is "synchronous dynamic random access memory" and DIMM is for "dual inline memory module". These are the way manufacturers describe the specific speed, type, and packaging of the memory. You need to get the correct combination for your computer in order for it to function properly. The PC2100 is NOT correct, at the very least it will slow your computer down, and possibly will not work at all. You should use PC2700.

    If you wish to add another 512MB taking your computer to 1GB total, then you only need 1 module, a 512MB, like the one that came in the computer. Do not purchase a 1GB module expecting it to work properly with the one already there. It probably won't. If you want to max out your computer's memory taking it to 2GB, then you will need to purchase 2 each 1GB modules, and remove the existing 512MB module.

    When you go to the computer store, you ask for either "one five-hundred-twelve megabyte, PC2700, DDR, SDRAM DIMM memory module" or "two one-gigabyte, PC2700, DDR, SDRAM DIMM memory modules".

    The part numbers from, Kingston, one of the major add-on memory makers are shown here:

    512MB = KVR333X64C25/512
    1GB = KVR333X64C25/1G

    Ram upgrade

    Step 5: Remove a memory or continuity module Continuity modules do not contain memory, but are placeholders to close the memory circuit. Use the following steps to remove a memory or continuity module:
    1. Pull out, and then press down on the holding clips that retain the memory modules. The memory modules should rise up slightly out the socket. Figure 5: Opening memory module tabs c00571682.gif
    2. Pull out the memory or continuity module (for RIMMs) and place it in a static-safe container.
    Step 6: Add a memory module Use the following steps to insert a memory module into an empty socket:
    1. If RIMMs are being used, keep the following items in mind when purchasing and installing modules:
      • The memory configuration of channel A (the first two sockets) and channel B (the second two sockets) must be identical.
      • Continuity RIMMs must fill any open memory sockets.
      • When a continuity RIMM is required, it should be installed into the second socket.
    2. Align the memory module so the small notches on the lower edge line up with the raised marks in the socket. Figure 6: Memory module installation c00571683.gif 1 - DIMM (notches farther apart) 2 - RIMM (notches close together)
