Viewing the back of your computer, you will see a large thumb screw, on the right side of the computer case.
It's to the right of that round ventilation opening. (Round shape with multiple holes in it)
Unscrew the thumb screw to the Left, to loosen it.
The side panel that the thumb screw is in, pulls back towards the rear of the computer.
If you look, there is a place to put your fingers at the end of the side panel.
(Raised 'Hump' in the sheet metal of the panel)
Hold the top of the computer case with one hand, pull the side panel back with the other hand.
The computer MUST be unplugged from power before proceeding!
Not only is there a possible issue for Your safety, but also the computer's!
You will fry out the Ram Memory stick/s if you remove, or install with the computer plugged into power.
Also,......there is an Anti-Static issue that needs to be addressed, BEFORE you reach inside your computer
Your body carries Static electricity.
Static will fry out the hardware components inside a computer.
(In a Flash!)
Work on a table. Computer unplugged from power, computer case open. TOUCH the metal frame of the computer case BEFORE you reach inside.
TOUCH the metal frame Before, you take those ram sticks out of their protective antistatic bags.
Should you get up for any reason, walk away, then return, Touch the metal frame again.
Refrain from touching the gold plated contact pins, on the bottom of the ram stick.
You can handle the ram stick anywhere, but on those contact pins.
The ram stick is coated with a see-through plastic.
The contact pins are not.
