How do i install memory modules in a dell dimension 3000


Answers :

Hi,
This is Gabriel here . Please follow these steps to install the memory:

Lay the computer on its side so the system board is on the bottom of the inside of the computer. If necessary, remove a memory module: Press out the securing clip at each end of the memory module connector.

Grasp the module and pull up. If the module is difficult to remove, gently ease the module back and forth to remove it from the connector.

To insert a module, press out the securing clip at each end of the memory module connector.

Align the notch on the bottom of the module with the crossbar in the connector. Insert the module straight down into the connector, ensuring it fits into the vertical guides at each end of the connector.

Press firmly on the ends of the module until it snaps into place. If you insert the module correctly, the securing clips snap into the cutouts at each end of the module.Replace the computer cover.
