Well on any generic computer case there is 2-3 screws that hold on the side panel to get access to the motherboard and the accessories inside. the ram is the long sticks that usually has 2-4 slots and look like little computer chips side by side,and look like a comb(brush hair with) there is a clip on each side that is pulled away from the stick and lets the ram be pulled out. installing is the reverse of uninstall but make sure to take note on which type of ram u have. there is sdram which has 2 breaks in the little row of metal pins on the bottom of the ram stick and there is ddr and ddr2 ram. the ddr is a break in the center of the stick pins and ddr2 is offset to one side of the center of the pins on the bottom. make sure to compare, because if you try to jam the wrong type in there you will either break the mobo or the stick. also take note which way the stick is pulled so you can tell where the small break is on the ram slot ont he mobo.

How do I open this computer case and install new RAM?


Most of the case will be snap together with only a few screws. If you look in the vent panels with a light you will see the tabs and the points that you need to depress with a small screw driver. This will most likely split in half on the cabinet but you have to remove the face first. None of the buttons or there drives need to be removed for this to happen.

How do I upgrade my ram on my Gateway All in one zx4250?


I too purchased a Gateway ZX4250 and a 4 GB RAM upgrade kit. It took me awhile to figure out how to open the case. Here is what I found.

1) Remove the two rubber pads at the bottom of the case (don't worry they pop right back on).
2) Open the small back cover.
3) Remove the one screw.
*****CAREFUL****
4) This part is a little difficult but just be careful not to use too much force. Take two small flat head screwdrivers and slowly separate the plastic silver front panel from the plastic black back panel. Start at the bottom where the two rubber pads were removed. Work your way around the case, you can see how the clips are connecting the two panels as you work your way around the all-in-one. It shouldn't be too hard just be careful on how much force you use.
5) Once the panels are separated you can now access the hard drive, optical drive and some other components.
6) Disconnect the Hard drive sata cable from the motherboard.
7) Disconnect the other cable right next to the sata cable on the motherboard (I'm not sure as to the purpose of this cable.
8) Remove the screws from the metal plate covering the motherboard. Take careful note that a grounding cable is connected to one screw.
9) Install your RAM.
10) Reverse the procedure to put everything back together.

This whole procedure to upgrade my RAM took about 15 minutes. I hope this helps some of you that are trying to upgrade your RAM. If you have any questions PM me.

Graphics upgrade


As long as you have a open vga, vga e, or pci slot in your computer you should be able to install a new video card. the Acer website says your motherboard supports up two gigs of ram, I am not sure how much ram you are running but if it is under 1 gig I would consider upgrading that also. as far as a graphics card goes get one that has at least 512 mb of its own ram so it dosent pull from your system ram as I am sure your current on-board card is doing. Another couple of hints are: if you are running Windows Vista you they call for 1 gig ram for optimal performance, also it is very important that you un-install any graphics drivers before you install new ones, and when you install the new card read the instructions completely before you do anything.
hope this helps
