All i can say is WOW. But that is an entirely different subject. There should be either screws on the back of the unit or a latch type system on the left or right side of the case. Sometimes these MFG use some strange latching mechanisms. Let me know if you need anymore assistance. Be more than willing to help. Thank you Jay

I cant find a way to open up the CPU case to fit a Wireless adapt


Lay your computer on its side with the computer cover facing up.
If your computer cover has a cover latch, slide and hold the cover latch.

Grip the indents on the computer cover, and slide the computer cover toward the back of the computer.

Place the computer cover on a level surface.

MFATXPNT ESX 500S GATEWAY model above. Want to open the case and install 2 more memory boards. How do I open this case? Ralph


On my model, there is a broad recessed area on the top of the case.

On the left-hand side of this area (as you face the front), there is a 3-inch-wide, grooved-surfaced latch that must be pressed inward (to your left) to free the left panel. If you are facing the left side of the unit, pressing this latch inward by grabbing the top of the panel as if you were going to pull it off by force naturally presses in the latch, opening the case.

If you're not seeing the latch, note that the top half of the front can be covered by a rotating cover that covers the drive bays. When it is not covering the front, this rotating cover flips up and around, coming to rest on the top of the unit in the broad recessed area.

When this cover is flipped up and stored at the top of the unit, the case latch is hidden and not pressable. Flip the cover back down so that it's covering the drives, and you're good to go.

Lay the case on its side, push in the two long eliptacal buttons and lift the case open like a clamshell. If it feels really heavy in you hands, it may be upside down, you want the motherboard section on the floor, look at the output panel on the back of the computer for a reference.

I have a Philips Easylife LX3000 computer and wish to upgrade the RAM from 2Gb to 4Gb. Please would you send me a diagram or describe which panel I need to remove to reveal the RAM ports. Also would you...


Go to http://www.kingston.com and look up your model there, and find out what memory is available. Not all computers can take 4 GB of memory.

To access the RAM, you need to power down the machine, and open the case. RAM sits in DIMM slots on the motherboard.

To remove RAM, there are small latches on each side of the slot, open them carefully so they don't break. Lift the memory stick out gently.

If you break the latches (happens to all of us!) just make sure the memory is seated firmly in the slot. The computer will still run.

To insert RAM, notice that there is a small notch along the bottom of the stick, it needs to line up with the corresponding bump in the slot. Push the stick in gently but firmly until it locks in place.

Go slow, have plenty of light available, and you should be able to make this upgrade yourself.

If I've solved your issue, please mark this problem as "Fixya", if not please let me know what else I can do for you with a comment.

Good Luck,
Airoff
