Identify what type of RAM you will need and purchase the exact one.

3. Place the ends of the RAM into the ends of the slot. Make sure the hole is over the notch. Push down on the ends of the memory until the latches on the slot attach themselves to the sides of the memory. You will hear a click when this happens.
