Inspiron Small Desktop 3000 series upgradability

I wanted to order the above unit but there is no response from DELL regarding upgradability. Perhaps their server is down. Details of the Inspiron product is at this link: http://www.dell.com/my/p/inspiron-3647-small-desktop/pd?oc=w210451mywin8&model_id=inspiron-3647-smal...

I wish to upgrade the memory module by another 4GB; and if this can be upgraded how do i go about it as there are insufficient instructions unlike those days (3 or 4 years back) there is an option for each component, if applicable, to be upgraded. Thanks.

RE: Inspiron Small Desktop 3000 series upgradability

I just upgraded my Inspiron 3647 from 4GB to 16GB myself with RAM purchased from Best Buy.  I am a complete novice and have never done this before.  Initially I was befuddled by the enormous black fan guard that was blocking my access to the two RAM ports.  But, I finally figured out how to pop it out.  (Look at the 4 arrows on the fan. You have to reach behind and pull each latch holding the fan guard in place. Slender fingers will help!).

Thanks for your information.

Perhaps you can answer another one which is whether the motherboard comes with DVI (digital visual interface) port that connects to a monitor by a cable. Thanks

Hmm... not sure.  There is an HDMI and VGA connection on the back, but no DVI.  However, there is an empty slot in the back with a removable cover.  Perhaps DVI could be added?  I'm just not knowledgeable enough to know.

No, the Inspiron 3647 small desktop has a HDMI-out port, together with a VGA port
