  • 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.

  • Pull the chip directly out from its connectors. If there is a second RAM chip installed, pop it out in the same manner.

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.
