You need to take the cover off the computer on both sides. Normally the optical drive is secured by four screws, two on the left and two on the right. Take those screws out and slide the drive forward enough to get to your memory stick. You may not have to unplug the cables, but if you can't slide it out far enough you will.

I Have an HP pavilion slimline s3100n desktop pc and when i turn it on the blue light is lit but there is not power on the usb cables and i cant see anything on my computer screen but the fans are working...


Without additonal information, it is difficult to offer specific suggestions, but:

Are the video connections to the computer/computer card and the monitor tight?

Is the monitor turned on? Sorry - I had to ask.

Do you have access to another monitor? Does it work on your computer?

Do you have a video card on a computer which has its own, built-in video card? If so try switching where you attach the video cable. Once I had to physically remove the seperate card, attach to the built in output and all worked well.

If you have access to a working computer, you can go to:

for additional information.

Hp pavilion slimline s3100n doesn't display on the monitor. boots fine and fans spin and stuff, it just doesn't recognize its own VGA output. What do i do?


Hi
First,try hooking it up to an external monitor if you have access to one.Unfortunately,we need video to start checking for what may be wrong.
Try the monitor and post back to let me know what happens,and if it shows on the external display we can start looking at potential problems and fixes.

How do I get the DVD out of my s3100n slimline pavilion HP in order to install add'l ram


Most slimeline cases have DVD that remove from the front. That is you will have to remove the front plate of the computer to slide the DVD out. Close to the inside corners on the front usually are compression fit plugs that snap into place, ocassionaly screws but not often. Take your time and slowly push them outwards once you have all of them loose on one side you can gently rock the front back and forth until the other side dislodges.

It is important to not use excessive force or you could break the pins in which case you will need to have some glue handy.

I want to upgrade the RAM, and when I opened the desktop the dvd is positioned over the memory slots. I CANNOT FIGURE OUT HOW TO REMOVE THE DVD TO SWOP OUT THE RAM


see if there the motherboard is secured onto a rack that can slide out of the casing. most newer computers have this feature. if not, you will have to unscrew the dvd drive from the casing to get to memory slots. unplug the drive, find the mounting screws, and remove the drive. remember to plug everything back up (power, interface cable, digital cable if present).

good luck.
