First, turn off the PC, remove the power cord from the back of the PC to remove the 115 volts then push the power button for a second or two so the capacitors will discharge. This is important because the residual charge can cause Motherboard damage especially when changing the RAM. You should follow this process ANYTIME you enter the PC case to make changes, etc.

To remove the side panel on a Pavilion 700x series:
Only one side panel allows access to the inside of the Pavilion case, the left side if looking from the front of the PC. The left side panel has knurled thumbscrews, not machine screws. Loosen the thumbscrews, they are designed to stay attached to the side panel, place your hand on the middle of the side panel and with inward force push the panel towards the back. The panel will slide and inch or two and you can pull it free. This proccess is easier if the PC is unplugged (push the power button on the front of the PC after pulling the power cord to dischard the capacitors) and the right side of the PC laying on the floor. This allows easy access to the left panel and allows light to enter the case from above to change/add the RAM you want to install.

    What about taking off the top panel. Can you take off the top panel for easier access to the power supply on this HP model? If so, how?

Im trying to open the case on my hp pavilion zd8000. I took all of the screws off of the back and I can not get it open.


Here is a link to a manual for your machine.

You didn't indicate the whole model number so the link will take you to all of the models. Just choose the correct one and in the next window click on the manual section.

Hope this helps.

Trying to open it up?!?


In addition to the screws visible outside the case, you need to get at screw(s) underneath the keyboard. By removing the hinge cover/speaker faceplate, you can remove the screws holding the keyboard in, and lift the keyboard out to get at the last screw(s).

This model laptop will not allow you to add a video card to it. The video card and all of its components are part of the Laptop motherboard already.

You can, however upgrade your memory from the 1GB up to a total of 2GB, but your current configuration is 2x512mb chips.

So right now you have 2 memory slots available but they are being used by the 2 512mb chips. You will have to remove them and replace them with 2 1gb chips. This can be fairly pricey.

Here is a link to your computer specs
