\015\012Thanks for using Fixya.
Shut the pc down, remove the cover. You will see the existing ram. Depending on how many sticks you can have install these where the existing ones are. Don't touch the metal on the sticks. Make sure it clicks in when you place it in the slots. Place the cover back on and turn on the cover. It should recognize it right away.
