Hello, I have a DV4i-2100 notebook. I had the battery out the other day checking for dust and in the battery compartment or bay I saw a SD card icon with SIM printed in it and a slot at the front of the battery compartment.
Is this for a SD card and if so can it be used for an extra storage drive?
I downloaded the parts manual but could not find any reference to it.

This is not an SD card slot, it’s rather a SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) or SIM card like the one on your cell phone, and is used on notebooks PCs that have a WWAN card to connect to the 3G networks of cell phone companies. If your computer did not shipped with WWAN card, this slot will not be of much use.

I took a look on line at HP.com for your model and in the "Notebook PC User guide" http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01944573.pdf
It does list
located inside the battery bay.
SIM slot (select models only) Contains a subscriber identity module (SIM). The SIM slot is located inside the battery bay"
Being a SIM slot would imply it is for WWAN connection card like in a cell phone
