This is how to replace RAM in a PC. It just takes a few simple steps to do this, it is really not that hard. You can trust me since I have an a+ certification in computer hardware and software. I know what I am doing, I am an expert.

1. First of all, you need to shut off your computer. To do this press the power button on the front of the computer after you have shut it down from Start> Shutdown on your start menu.

2. Unplug the power cord from your computer. This is the big black/white/grey plug that plugs into the power supply on the back of your PC.

3. Unplug the rest of the wires from the back of the computer.

4. Find a sturdy flat surface on which to work on.

5. Unscrew all screws from the back of your computer except the power supply screws. You will make a mess if you unscrew the power supply screws.

6. Open your computer up by taking the side panel off, or sliding the cover off. It might be difficult but it will come off if you have taken all the screws out.

5. Now before touching anything inside, it is a good idea to hook up to an anti-static wrist strap. If you dont have an anti-static wrist strap, just touch the side of the computer where it is metal to deshock yourself. Then when you touch the inner components you wont risk damaging any of them.

7. Find the RAM, it should be a 4 inch card sticking out horizontally on the motherboard.

8. Once you find the RAM, find the clips holding it in on either end of the ram, hold your thumb over both ends of the clips and firmly press down on the clips. They should pop the ram out.

9. Remove the RAM.


10. Now that you've removed the ram, the next step is to reinsert some new ram into your ram slots. To do this keep the clips on both sides open, and slide the ram into the slot if it doesnt want to go in you might have it going in backwards so try both ways until you get a good fit. Make sure the ram is not lopsided when its clamped down or it will not work.

Thank you, happy computing!

HOW dO I aDD memory?


It really depends on what you have now. Go to crucial's site http://uk.crucial.com/gbr/en/ and use the scan computer tool and it will tell you how, if you can and the parts if possible.
Frankly this is the safest and surest way of doing this.

Desk top just turn off, will boot up or power will go on just for a few secounds and turn right off again


You are having an improper hardware installation or having hardware malfunction. It may be because of the following reasons:
  1. You changed the hardware settings of some device that results in malfunction of device.
  2. Your RAM will be having some problems. Try unplugging your RAM from RAM slot and remove dust by rubbing with an eraser(only from pins at the bottom of RAM.Do not rub the IC chips and circuits)
  3. You have installed a new hardware device on previous system use that have correpted the system boot settings. Remove the newly installed hardware and try restarting.
If you have checked the above problems and the computer didn't return to normal state then contact for nearest technical support.

Ram problem?


Most likely your system has UMA video (Unified Memory Architecture) which means that system RAM is used for Video. Many systems dynamically allocate RAM resources to the Video, thus you get the varying amounts of RAM accessible indicated. This is a normal function and system is working as designed.

Frequent message - virtural memory is low, increasing memory


Many times upgrading the ram amount will correct this problem. You may also upgrade you Video card for one that has a lot more memory chips(Total Ram) on it, since you have a desk top type computer. I have included a link in case you have misplaced you manual to see the original specifications. Ram and Video cards are available on line for such places as : Newegg.com               or            Tiger.com              to name two.

How to install ram


Most E-machines have shared video memory. to increase the amount, enter the set-up utility before windows boots and change the amount to the max.48cb029.jpg

the blue or the black on the left with white tabs are where the ram is installed. if you go to crucial.com and enter the e-machines model # etc it will tell you what ram is compatible and what the max ram amount is.
