Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook
I would like to inspect the dimm boards in this notebook. I have removed the 2 screws but the cover does not release. I do not want to force the cover off. is there another release or fastener I don't see?
There are usually plastic clips holding the DIMM cover in place, in addition to the screws. It's okay to gently pry the cover off as long as you have removed the screws.
