  • Forum Thread: RAM count problems on Dimension XPS Gen 4

    'Twas a simple process. I have some out-of-warranty Dimension XPS Gen 4 workstations in my lab that we're phasing out.

  • Forum Reply: Re: XPS 9000: How in the world do you open the CD/DVD drawer!?

    I was stumped at first, too. To open it or close it, there is a hard to find "button" on the front face of the box, just to the right of the hinged door. It looks like part of the shiny black face, but it is a button. It's amazing they didn't bother to mention it in the manual.
