That's not the RAM, that's the m.2 SSD slot. The RAM on this laptop is soldered to the mainboard and cannot be replaced/repaired.

Ok, so they changed this guide from a RAM change to an SSD change. Fine. One thing to point out is that the default m.2 drive for this laptop is a SATA based m.2, not a PCIe. Not sure if it can handle a PCIe m.2 drive.
