    I have a Presario S3000T Compaq with Windows XP. I want to open it up to see if it has a place for an AGP video card. I tried to figure it out myself and didn't get very far. I looked online for tutorials but none of the pictures resembled what I have, at least as far as I can tell. How do I open this thing up without ruining it?

    Nah, there was a file with the warranty info and lots of warnings, then a picture guide to setting up the computer. Nothing about taking it apart.

    Most PC cases have the removable panel on the left side (looking at the front of the PC). If there are screws on the back of the left panel, remove those. Compaqs usually have a tab/button to press down to release the panel. Slide back the left panel and lift to remove the panel.

    Wait, isn't that a laptop? Laptops don't have AGP slots, only desktops do.

    I think compaq has both a desktop and laptop model with the S3000 name.
