Replacing Memory Modules

1. Align the memory module's edge connector with the slot in the center of the memory module connector. The memory module is keyed, or designed to fit into the connector in only one direction. The slot on the system board is notched so that the memory module can be firmly seated only one way.

2. With the module at a 45-degree angle, press the memory module's edge connector firmly into the memory module connector.

3. Pivot the memory module down until it clicks into place.

If you do not hear a click as each end of the memory module snaps into the tabs, remove the memory module and reinstall it.
