    i'm sure it would be just the same as any other base unit..... just unscrew and slide it off sideways

    Actually Dell tend to be much easier than that.

    There usually is a lockable leaver. Pull it and the case's side wall swings open for easy access.

    as lynds says with all of my recent dell desktops

    Well it is a Dell PC, and they are one of the biggest PC makers in the world, so maybe they have a support web site.

    And maybe on that web site they have instructions on how to take the cover off a Dell 3100c.

    So I look for one, and 10 seconds later find this:

    support.dell.com/sup…htm

    Here is a page listing all the docs available for that Dell

    Sorry for the sarcasm, but you can find out EVERYTHING on the internet. I just seached on "Dell 3100c", went to the Dell web site from the list of hits, pressed a few buttons, and there it was. So easy.

    if you are not that confident in getting the case open, are you sure you should be even trying to insert new memory, "do you know what you are doing"
