Flip your laptop over and take out the battery. The release is right there near the battery. Remove three screws from the cover on the opposite edge of the back. The RAM slots are under that cover. Simply pull the levers away and the RAM will pop up. The new memory slips into the socket and clips down. Remember to keep yourself grounded to the laptop frame while working inside. Electro-static discharge can destroy your whole computer without you even knowing. Just keep one hand on the computer at all times. New RAM will hold up your first boot, but after that; all is well.
