Question about Compaq Presario Notebook
Hi, I've just bought an acer 5720Z, which is in desperate needed of additional RAM. I can't remove the rear cover - the smaller cover is over the hard drive, which i can remove, but the larger one - after removing it's four screws - still won't budge. Is there a trick here that anyone knows about for removing this cover? I've replaced RAM in my previous three computers and never had this problem - covers usually come off easily.
Just did this one myself and the cover is a real pain and theres a good risk of breaking it. the secret is to get bit of a curve going across the panel so that the clips around the side pull away from the case
thanx for heads up guys

I've jusr replaced some RAM in an ACER Aspire 5720Z.
The large cover (held down with four screws) has clips that clip in all the way around. On edge of the panel that is close to laptop's edge has 4 notches that slide in.
Please note, that these clips were VERY tight.
Start on the side of the panel where there is a spot to lift it (close to the middle). Gently pry it up with a flat screw driver. Work your way towards the laptop's outer edge on both sides, and then slide the panel off.

Sure..be real careful with removing that..you may need to GENTLY pry that up, under the slot, that is on one side...make sure all screws are removed, or loosened..this may mean that your memory was NOT installed correctly in the first place(causing the door to jam)..
Or, you may have the magnetic memory(just kidding)
