To take out the RAM, locate the RAM Stick (SODIMM) towards the right of the computer. Spread the clips on either side of the stick and the RAM stick should pop up. You can then pull out, and replace. To reinstall, insert the new RAM stick at a slight angle (about 45 degrees). Push in and down to seat the RAM Correctly. Then just install the back panel.
