Remove Memory from PC before recycling PC

\015 I want to physically remove the memory from the PC before recycling the desktop. I have the back cover off, but am not sure where the memory card is in this old PC. Any suggestions (Without installing any software on this old PC that would remove it within the system.)\015

Answers :

If you look at the motherboard you should see a plastic strip with black squares on it sticking up from the motherboard about 4 inches long. Often in older models the memory cards were at a slant. Either way there are 2-4 slots populated with 1 to 4 of these green plastic strips. Just pop them out. They may have little clips on each end that you have to depress to get them out of the slots. Hope this helps.
On the mother board the circuit board connected to one of the sides of the computer tower there are pices of circuit board standing up at a 90 degree angle to the mother board these are the ram.
if you want the harddrive it is normally positioned under the CD drive
