iMac 20" memory upgrade

Charles Nguyen -

My Problem

The iMac needed a RAM upgrade before it could get Mac OSX 10.11 installed.

My Fix

The repair went well. A simple screwdriver to remove the cover and then I inserted RAM into the empty slot.

My Advice

Removing the memory that was in the computer was difficult. This required a needle-nose pliers or something that can grab the chip. You cannot remove it with just fingers.
