Question about Computers & Internet
Power down your machine if on unplug power cable. Then open case how ever it opens. Locate the dimm (memory) slots. There will be two ears that hold them in. Make sure both are open -outward from the memory modules. The memory only goes in one way look on the bottom of the memory and see the slot (grooves) in the bottom.
Now look at the motherboard memory slots they will have a bump in the middle of the channel. Match up the groove and the bump and place the memory in the slot. If done correct the only thing left to do is press down on the memory to lock the ears back down. Press down on one side thil the ear locks down, then press the other side down til it locks. The memory should be held tight by the ears if not open the ears and try again. It may take some force to lock into place but not to much. If it takes to much look and make sure you have the memeory in the right way. Close the case and plug everything back in.
Start the system and the bios should and the new ram up if it's an old system. Or if it's ne probably just tell you how much is in it and boot. Make sure to get the right kind of ram for your motherboard. Sorry for making this long but I don't know how much you know about computer hardware. Just wanted to cover everything. Hope this helps.
