Question about HP Hewlett Packard Pavilion Slimline S3100N PC Desktop
The manual with pictures is available here: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00877796.pdf . Page 9 has the optical disc removal steps. The steps are remove the cover then remove the front cover (press two tabs apart at the bottom of the cover and the two tabs on the top together. push that out). If your computer has a Pocket Media drivem lift the tab on that cage and pull it back and out of the chassis. Disconnect the power and data cables from the back of the drive, noting their orientation. The power cable gets gently rocked back and forth; pull the tab on the data cable. Disconnect an audio cable if needed. Remove the screw from the side of the optical drive and pull the latch away. Push the drive forward and out without tilting it.
Now you should be able to locate the memory sockets.
I hope this helps.

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.
