How do you install new RAM boards
My computer runs fine but the RAM usage really stinks and I don't know how to install new ones
Is this a good question?
Brandon, it is not to difficult. "
1 Ground yourself by touching one of the metal connectors on the back of the computer.
2 Turn the computer over, loosen the captive screws on the memory module cover, and then remove the memory module cover.
3 If you are replacing a memory module, remove the existing module:
a Use your fingertips to carefully spread apart the securing clips on each end of the memory module connector until the module pops up.
b Remove the module from the connector.
4 Ground yourself and install the new memory module:
a Align the notch in the module edge connector with the tab in the connector slot.
b Slide the module firmly into the slot at a 45-degree angle, and rotate the module down until it clicks into place. If you do not feel the click, remove the module and reinstall it.
NOTICE: If you need to install memory modules in two connectors, install a memory module in the connector labeled “DIMMA” before you install a module in the connector labeled “DIMMB.” Insert memory modules at a 45-degree angle to avoid damaging the connector.
NOTE: If the memory module is not installed properly, the computer may not boot properly. No error message indicates this failure.
5 Replace the memory module cover.
