I have a Sony Vaio VGC-RC102 tower PC which has 1GB of RAM but should take 2GB. In order to extend its life I plan to upgrade the RAM but am currently being frustrated by my inability to remove the cover from the tower unit.
The user manual describes removing 2 screws from the left hand panel and then pulling this panel off. This doesn't seem to work and as the graphic for this operation doesn't look like my unit it's very difficult to be sure that I am doing the right thing. I've now removed all 5 screws from the cover but nothing seems to want to budge and I'm reluctant to use any force for fear of damaging the unit. In the past when I've removed covers from tower or desktop PCs they've come off quite easily ... Any ideas or advice please?
