Good day sir/maam, you need to open the side cover of the dell PC, now look at the picture below:

Turn the PC off, the encircled part is the memory slot, on its side is the release/locking lever, place the lever in the release (push it on the side) now insert the module vertically with then gently push it down until the lever snaps into lock. Do it with the next module, takes a little practice, if the module is snug and fit. thats it. Power on the PC. if you hear continuos
beeping, power the pc off, remove the modules and do the installation again. Do this several times until the PC response.

04 f250 6.8 v10 rough running after replacing cylinder heads brand new and 02 sensors. lean and rich codes and hesitation while engaged in drive and reverse.

Need to get those codes read at a repair shop with an engine diagnostic scanner. Replacing what you may have thought were bad O2 sensors were most likely not bad. Analyzing the codes will dictate further diagnostic checks using flow charts to check other sensors and wiring that the engine computer monitors. Make sure you plugged every connector in properly and didn't damage those connectors or sensors after performing such a major repair job. Additionally, make sure you have all the spark plug wires hooked up to the corrected cylinders. No spark plugs were damaged or cracked and possibly perform a engine compression test of all cylinders as well to verify the motor is still within factory compression specs.

Blue screen error 0x0000007B

This error indicates you have a device driver issue especially those related to hard drive and other storage controllers, viruses, data corruption, and sometimes even hardware failures. The first thing you need to do is run the built in diagnostics.
1) Turn the computer off.

2) Turn the computer back on.

3) Immediately at the Dell logo screen, starting tapping the <F12> key once a second until the One Time Boot menu appears (if the computer boots to Windows turn the computer off and try again)

4) At the One Time Boot menu, press the <Down> arrow key to highlight Diagnostics, PSA+ or Enter ePSA, then press <Enter> to begin the PSA.

5) At the One Time Boot menu, press the <Down> arrow key to highlight Diagnostics, PSA+ or Enter ePSA, then press <Enter> to begin the PSA.

6) Write down any Error Codes and Validation codes listed.

1992 Buick Century misses at all speeds, will occasionally die while at idle, but starts immediately and runs well except for the misfires. New air filter and plugs installed. Thinking plug wires and fuel...

At this point, replacing the plug wires is a great idea, especially if they are worn or over due for replacement, Always start with the basics...then proceed with diagnostics with possible engine management causes.

Panasonic NN-S254 additional installation instructions

I just removed mine. There should be two long screws coming down from above into the unit. Remove them completely and then lift the microwave up towards the cabinet and slide forward. Sometimes some jiggling will help.
Leave the hanger assembly on the wall. It has the two prongs that go into the "insert" slots
