Remove both expansion bay modules using the levers on the front of the computer.
Insert your index fingers inside the expansion bays and search for the two ribbed tabs on the underside of the upper case. The tabs are located near the bottom corners of the keyboard.
Pull the tabs toward yourself and the keyboard will pop up.
Use a spudger, the tips of your fingers, or a flat non-metal tool to pry up the processor's right side.
Remove the processor by sliding it up and to the right.
The processor and RAM can be removed as a unit. It is not necessary to remove the RAM from the processor.
There are two tabs on the left side of the processor that fit into slots on the metal framework. Make sure these tabs are in the slots.
Release the tabs on each side of the RAM chip at the same time. These tabs lock the chip in place and releasing them will cause the chip to "pop" up. There is a similar RAM slot located on the other side of the processor.
We recommend installing higher capacity chips on the bottom so that if you want to upgrade later, you won't have to remove the processor. Accessing RAM in the upper slot merely requires removing the heat shield.
