Install RAM - Pavilion s7600n slimline

I am attempting to install addtl memory in my computer. I bought it with an installed

DVD player. When I opened the unit I could not get to the appropriate board because

it was behind/under the DVD player. I want to remove the existing board and install

2 X 1Ghz boards. Can anyone tell me how to do this?

Re: Install RAM - Pavilion s7600n slimline

Prof. Potyrata,

Thanks much for the info re installing addtl RAM in my Slimline. I have reviewed

both the on-line instructions and the video and am impressed with how simple it

is to remove one board and install two others. However, my request

for help was precipitated by the presence of a DVD player which is blocking me

from reaching what I think is a 512 MB memory board that I want to remove. I

don't know how to remove the DVD, and anything else that may be blocking my

way to the memory board. 

Can you help?

Re: Install RAM - Pavilion s7600n slimline

Thanks mucho for those instructions on installing/removing the DVD.

It was just what I needed to get to the memort boads.I removed the

fan housing, the DVD, and the old 512 MB memory board, then

installed two 1GB boards. The computer is wizzing right along with

four times the memory. Much apapreciated.
