Answers :

\015\012Here is a link to your manual.
\015\012Pavilion Manual
\015\012Go to page 114-116 and read about replacing RAM. You will get an idea where the RAM is from the pictures. They are the chips that are about 1 inch wide and 5 inches long.
\015\012Some notes:
\015\0121) Make sure you replace with RAM that is compatible. Go to www.crucial.com and run a scan. It will tell you what you have, what you need, and maximum capacity.
\015\0122) Make sure you remove power from the computer. Remove the power cord. Then press and hold the "ON" button for 5 seconds to drain the capacitors in the computer. Discharge any static electricity in your body by touching the metal part of the computer case.
\015\0123) Make sure the RAM is securely seated in the slots. The tabs should "lock" into the slots on the RAM modules.
\015\012Good luck. If you need more help, just comment back.
The RAM slots are near on the processor you can see it will snap when everytime you put the RAM or memory. you can also refer your motherboards manual for the information that you wanted. there is a direction and specification of RAM in the manual.
