How to add RAM to HP Compaq Presario Notebook v5101us? How do I access/open the notebook (back) to replace the RAM?

There should be two or three small covers on the bottom of your laptop. One covers the harddrive, one covers the memory slots and a possible third cover will cover the wireless card.

Wireless and bluetooth won't turn on

To kickstart the wireless and make it work again on the nc6120's.

Turn on the computer and hit F10 to go into the BIOS.
Go up under File and choose Restore Defaults.

Save your changes and reboot your OS.
If your using Windows, you should be able to pick a wireless network now.

If you previously had a WEP or WPA pw key set, you may have to re-enter
it again as it was cleared out during the reset.

Wireless enable problem

Check under Device Manager first. That's under Network Adapters. If you see a thing called Network Controller under Other devices, the driver for your wireless card has not been installed. Simply reinstall it by right-click > Update Driver. But if you see your wireless card there with yellow caution sign, the driver needs to be reinstalled. With red X, that mean its disabled, right-click it and Enable. If no wireless card under device manager, your built-in wireless card is busted, you need to buy a separate notebook adapter. Good Luck!

if this is working, it's look like your harddrive is dead.

but if this isnot working (still same problem), remove the dvd, wireless card (from the back of the unit) and try again.
if still not working, Motherboard is bad.
