If you look along the top edge of the escape/function/del keys, there are several small plastic tabs that hold the keypad in place. Use a very small flat head screwdriver to push these back from one corner across to the other, gently lifting the keypad as you go. When you press back the last tab, the keypad should just pop out but take care as it's connected by a cable at the bottom edge of the keys. The RAM slots are located under a thin metal cover under the keypad. You'll need a very small philips head screwdriver to undo this. After installing RAM, replace the metal cover then pop the keypad back in, bottom edge first and just press down the top edge and the plastic tabs should snap back into place. Hope this helps!

I have an old packard bell D1000 multimedia intelpentium, 133mh prcessor,1.2gb hard disk,32mb ram.33600bps modem 8x cd rom, what can be upgraded if any. I only use it for grandchildren but would like to...


rm,

Most likely, more RAM (memory) will help. That computer can hold a maximum of 128MB or RAM.

The EDO memory for that computer is no longer manufactured.
[72-pin EDO SIMM]

Used memory and possibly non-moving inventory are available.
Any such memory would be at a much HIGHER cost than current memory. (64MB is around $50)

I know you didn't ask for a recommendation; however,
1.) I recommend that you NOT upgrade the memory.
Even if the computer is upgraded to the max, it will still have similar performance issues.
Here is a link to a memory supplier;
or google: ""packard bell" d1000 memory"

2.) Consider a $275 Compaq computer from Office Depot - fully modern computer with DVD / CD, 2GB memory, Windows 7, AMD processor.
I know that's a lot of money for the purpose; however, it may be today's best bargain.

I have read many posts about the PB Imedia and problems trying to upgrade memory. Sounds like there are some motherboard issues with this PC . Some have reported success with mixing different memory types and speeds, but no real answers as to why.

You may have to check the voltage that powers the memory. Some memory sticks are rated at 1.8v , others use other voltages that will hang your system if mixed.

Check with the manufacturer for their recommendation.
