I have an advent T9404. I need to open the case to add RAM. I have removed the two obvious screws that hold the side panel, but the side panel will not move. I don't want to force it. Is there another fixing point that need to be released?

Remove 2 screws from right rear of case, then slide the side of the case backwards. The panel is a tight fit and may require firm pressure to remove. There is no other screw or fixing point.

How identify panel to remove hard drive

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Flip it over.
Remove the battery.
Look at the screws holding various "cover-panels" on the bottom (and side) of the case.
Take a small screwdriver, and remove the screws for one panel.
Gently remove the panel.
If you've opened the wrong panel, you'll see either the RAM slots, or the wireless adapter.
On some ThinkPads, removing a few screws allows the disk-drive to "slide" out, rather than being "behind" a panel.

How do i get the top off to replace a belt.

You don't need to remove the top.
Open the door, find 2 screws holding the door hinges, remove screws; remove the screws on the opposite side of the door opening from the hinges. With the door open or removed, pull the front panel forward. the top of the front panel will separate from the case and you'll be able to remove it lifting it off the bottom. You'll see several screws with hex heads on each side of the case, which were behind the front panel. Those hold the top and support for the drum. Remove serws. Enjoy! ;)))

Hi i have a laptop advent 8109 i need to open it

Remove panel at the back, remove keyboard from prongs at the top, remove HDD, remove screws holding down the laptop, remove heatsink, remove fan, remove ODD connector, lift out motherboard at an angle. Its really something that needs to be shown, but thats the order in which you need to do it. If you can figure out the "in-betweens", you will be on your way to a cheap repair!

How can I open my PC so I can add RAM?

Welcome to FixYa
I hope Following will Help you
  • Shut off the computer and unplug all of the cables connected to the computer tower. Press the power button to discharge any residual electricity. Touch the case to ground yourself. Unscrew the side panel (attached by two screws on the back-right of the tower), then slide it back and lift it off.
  • Locate the four consecutive large, narrow ports (matching the length of the 256MB RAM modules) and push back the clips on the ends of each empty port. One port will already have a stick of RAM installed. Leave that port alone. Align the RAM modules with the ports so that the notch in the RAM fits into the groove in the ports. Push the modules into each port until the clips snap into the top notch on each side of the modules.
  • Slide the side panel of the case back onto the computer tower and screw it back into place. Reconnect all of the cables.
  • Press the power button to turn the computer back on. Watch the screen for a prompt to confirm that the amount of system memory has changed. If prompted, press "F1." Allow the computer to boot up and confirm that the computer is functioning properly.

I need to replace the ram how do i open the case

The left side panel will need to be removed. Lay the computer down on it's right side side at take off the two screws on the back holding the left side panel. Some cases I've seen may just have a switch or something similar. Once you've done this slide the panel towards the back pull it off. The panel will not slide off, it'll move about an inch backwards at which point you will vertically remove the panel. Don't forget to ground yourself before touching any of the components.

Cant open the case to my HP pavilion 700

First, turn off the PC, remove the power cord from the back of the PC to remove the 115 volts then push the power button for a second or two so the capacitors will discharge. This is important because the residual charge can cause Motherboard damage especially when changing the RAM. You should follow this process ANYTIME you enter the PC case to make changes, etc.

To remove the side panel on a Pavilion 700x series:
Only one side panel allows access to the inside of the Pavilion case, the left side if looking from the front of the PC. The left side panel has knurled thumbscrews, not machine screws. Loosen the thumbscrews, they are designed to stay attached to the side panel, place your hand on the middle of the side panel and with inward force push the panel towards the back. The panel will slide and inch or two and you can pull it free. This proccess is easier if the PC is unplugged (push the power button on the front of the PC after pulling the power cord to dischard the capacitors) and the right side of the PC laying on the floor. This allows easy access to the left panel and allows light to enter the case from above to change/add the RAM you want to install.
