Hi,
Opening the case
Use the following steps to open the case: WARNING: The edges of metal panels can cut skin. Be careful not to slide skin along any interior metal edge of the computer. CAUTION: This product contains components that can be damaged by electrostatic discharge (ESD). To reduce the chance of ESD damage, work over a non-carpeted floor, use a static dissipative work surface (like a conductive foam pad), and wear an ESD wrist strap connected to a grounded surface.

  1. Unplug all cables except for the power. Write down each cable location if you do not already know where it connects.
  2. Unplug the power cable and with the power cable removed press the Power button.
  3. Remove the screws on the rear of the desktop (Your PC case may appear different than the images in this document). Figure 1: Example of screws for the side panel want to add RAM  - c00371471.jpg
  4. Slide the side panel off from the rear of the desktop. Figure 2: Removing the side panel
Thanks proton

I have 512 mg of memory. Would there be a big difference if I add a 1 gb stick and keep the 512 mb , as oppose to removing the 512 mb and replace with two 1 gb sticks?


The performance of your laptop will improve if similar memory is placed in each of memory slot.If 1gb memory and 512mb memory are placed in available slot you will only get the performance of a single 1gb memory.but two 1gb memory are used performance will be similar to a 2gb ram or more.

I have a nec GA-81915PMD Motherboard and would like to add more memory. Please can you advise me as to what is required.


You can either add to empty ram slots or replace them with new matching ram. If you add to the current, get ddr 400 or 333 depending on what's in it & the sticks can't be more than 1gb each,according to the maker. So you can put a total of 4gb in it. If you go with new, get ddr 400 in 1gb sticks up to a max of 4. To install,power the pc down, unplug it,remove the side panel,keeping yourself grounded to the case remove the ram you want to replace or add to the empty slots. Make sure the ram snaps firmly into place. Leaving the cover off, power up the pc to make sure it boots ok. It may shown a warning about the memory change,just press whatever key it says to continue. Once you verify that all is good,replace the side cover,that's it.

Usbs not working. am37 motherboard. Updated to the newest bios that I could find (Bios 3.20). Compaq Presario 6400NX. Im running 1gb of ram.


Remove bios battery and erase new bios (usually a pair of pins to short). If USBs now work - don't upgrade bios! If bios settings have no setting for diabling USB, motherboard failrure seems likely. Try a PCI USB card to provide sockets.

You will need to remove the 2-512MB ram that are installed on your computer and buy 2-1GB sticks. There is no other way around this. Download CPU-Z program to find exact memory module needed before you buy the wrong one. Good luck.
