Remove Dimension 2400 cover to install memory

The cover is normaly one of the side pannel board, u need to look for a screw that would keep it in place(look for a screw that will be afixed on the sidepanel with the back panel, once you have removed the screw just pull the side panel with force using a small hump that u may find on the side/back panel corner.
It's little trickey and need some concentration, u may find the RAM slot on the Motherboard (The RAM slot will be aprox 3 to 4 inch in length, the RAM goes in only in one way...)
hope this helps

Installing a 2nd 256m ram memory card into packard bell imedia3501

Installing more memory to a pc is very universal and is done the same way into all computers out there.

First unplug your pc
Open the side cover or remove the cover debending on your pc case.

Turn the pc sideways on the floor or table
and locate the memory slots near the cpu.

In this pc we have 3 memory modules installed
In this case I would have to remove one of the original memory modules first before installing a new one.

But in your computer you should have a extra slot open.

Simply insert the memory into the slot and turn the white switches on the sides to lock the memory in.

And you are done.

Installing memory

You can do this if both of your Desktops are using the same memory card or the memory card you need to replace from one to another desktop is supported by both the Desktop boards.
If you have not sure you can provide me the Model No for both the Desktops for more precise solution.
