Question about PC Desktops
Go to http://www.kingston.com and look up your model there, and find out what memory is available. Not all computers can take 4 GB of memory.
To access the RAM, you need to power down the machine, and open the case. RAM sits in DIMM slots on the motherboard.
To remove RAM, there are small latches on each side of the slot, open them carefully so they don't break. Lift the memory stick out gently.
If you break the latches (happens to all of us!) just make sure the memory is seated firmly in the slot. The computer will still run.
To insert RAM, notice that there is a small notch along the bottom of the stick, it needs to line up with the corresponding bump in the slot. Push the stick in gently but firmly until it locks in place.
Go slow, have plenty of light available, and you should be able to make this upgrade yourself.
