I wish to install more memory in my inspiron 6000. The manual says I need to remove the battery, and remove the hard drive before installing a new memory chip. Is this necessary and why?

Thank You

Hi. It is probably necessary because the memory slots are underneath the hard drive and battery. Removing those is no doubt the only way to gain access. I have an old HP PIII desktop. To install memory I had to remove the power supply. That is the way it goes when things are packed tightly inside a case. Laptops are no doubt terrible to work on just for that reason alone!
