never upgraded

I've had a computer for ten years and the only upgrade made was buying a new computer.The only thing I know about the inside of my computer is where the sound card is located and the only reason I know that is because I was forced to make an adjustment due to our friends at Dell sending me a computer in less than perfect condition. It was a huge shock when I called them and found out I had to make the repair myself when I was under the misconception that in home repair meant they send someone to do it.Sorry Charlie! Also I've noticed that the hardware upgrades are almost as expensive as buying a new computer.Can someone tell me where the memory modules are located in case I decide to bump it up to 512 instead of buying another computer.Just in case anyone takes this seriously I've got a Dimension 8200 1.7 256
