Small form factor easy access tray jammed

  dagbladet 13:08 08 Aug 2008

I've just added a stick of RAM to a Compaq Evo SFF D500. Amazingly easy to flip up the easy access tray to fit the stick. However, the tray (which houses the CD Rom) has locked in the 'up' position and I can't get it to go down. I'm sure there is a release catch somewhere, but I can't find it. Maybe I just need to push it a bit harder. but i don't want to break it. Any ideas?

Don't use brute force, download the manual and diagrams from here:

Thanks. Already downloaded that but though it goes through the steps to lift the tray and replace the RAM, it then jumps straight to "replace the computer cover".

I can see how the little plastic tab is locking into a reccess to lock the tray up, I just can't for the life of me work out how to release it.
