I purchased RAM to upgrade my HP Pavilion Slimline 400 Desktop PC. I've installed additional RAM in a Dell PC I used to own with no problem. This will be my first attempt at an hp. After watching videos online, I am getting confused. One video shows the RAM just inside the side panel. Another states that I will need to remove the optical drive first. Does anyone know of a good video on how to get to the RAM to get this accomplished? Thanks, Alan

Welcome back. Remove the side panel, and as the video shows, you may have to slide the DVD/CD drive to access the RAM slots. Slimlines are very compact.
