How to chang a video system
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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
Thank you, happy computing!
