Question about HP Hewlett Packard Pavilion Slimline S3100N PC Desktop
I'm trying to replace my RAM but it looks like the dvd drive is in the way. I've tried to remove it but it's stuck somehow, there's a small latch on the top that can lift and let me wiggle it a bit but the bottom is really on there. Is there a screw or something i'm missing? I don't want to risk breaking anything. Can you help?
Ok, what you've got to do are the following.
1. Remove outer cover. (you've obviously already done this)
2. Remove holder for personal storage device.
Pull up brown/black lever untill the unit lifts up and out
3. You can now see black screw holding in DVD/RW Drive - remove it.
4.Lift latch that you described
5. Push DVD Drive forward until you can access the memory

Here are the HP support instructions to replace the ram in your model. Sometimes the memory is just tight in the slot. Make sure you have pushed on the latches at both ends of the slot, and this will help to lever the card up from the slot as you pull it out.
