Almost correct on the ESD wrist band. however, unless the PC is pluged in then the ground isnot recieving a negitive.
the strap should be attached to a known building ground. and the PC should be unpluged to accomplish this or any task related to removing parts inside the PC.
Make sure you Memory stick is keys in the right direction and if in pairs should be installed in Most PC's as everyother slot.

99.99% of the time you can just open the case and pop the memory into the memory slots. I have never run into any issues doing it this way. But if you want to do it "properly", then you should wear an anti-static wristband and attach it to the metal part of the computer case in order to prevent possible damage during installation. See link below for example. This is just the first one I came across when searching google:

How easy is it to install RAM into a new sony vaio VGN NR110 laptop


Most current laptops have a lid/panel underneath the bottom covers hiding the memory. You need to turnover the laptop and visual inspect the bottom panel/cover. Memories often are readily accessible to the user. They are underneath a lid/panel which is roughly squarish about 2 X 2 inches. It is normally held in place by small screw(s). Upon screw removal, you need to pry open the lid cover to expose the memories. Pressing sideways on the 2 retaining clips of the memory would pop it out slightly which should then be relatively easy to remove.Popping in new memory is the reverse. Diagonally insert the new memories into the slots to initially set them in. Gently but firmly press on the memories downwards to lock them in place. You will notice that the 2 retaining clips will automatically lock in place.

Alternately, for a few more, you can purchase the memory from any computer shop/store and ask them to install hereby assuring yourself that the job was done right. Further the store will not have any excuse/reason when the new memory malfunctions and can be readily replaced.

Of course yo can do it yourself, it is relatively a simple job and if you are willing to take the risk (very minimal), go for a DIY (do-it-yourself).

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
