How To Install Memory

Desktop DIMM Installation

Note: Never apply pressure or handle the memory module on or around the Integrated Circuit (IC)! Always handle the memory with both hands positioned at the upper-most corners of the Printed Circuit Board (PCB).

1) Disconnect the AC power cord and remove the computer cover.

2) Prior to handling the memory module(s), always touch an unpainted and grounded metal object or use a grounded antistatic wrist strap to prevent electrostatic discharge (ESD).

3) If necessary, remove pre-existing memory by pressing down on the lock/ejector tabs. The tabs are located at both ends of the memory socket.

4) Align the memory module key(s) along with the memory socket keys(s) for proper installation.

5) Press the memory into the socket until the tabs snap into place and secure the memory module.

6) Replace the computer cover and plug in the AC power cord.
