Answers :

Well on any generic computer case there is 2-3 screws that hold on the side panel to get access to the motherboard and the accessories inside.\015\012\015\012the ram is the long sticks that usually has 2-4 slots and look like little computer chips side by side,and look like a comb(brush hair with) there is a clip on each side that is pulled away from the stick and lets the ram be pulled out. installing is the reverse of uninstall but make sure to take note on which type of ram u have.\015\012\015\012there is sdram which has 2 breaks in the little row of metal pins on the bottom of the ram stick and there is ddr and ddr2 ram.\015\012\015\012the ddr is a break in the center of the stick pins and ddr2 is offset to one side of the center of the pins on the bottom. make sure to compare, because if you try to jam the wrong type in there you will either break the mobo or the stick.\015\012\015\012also take note which way the stick is pulled so you can tell where the small break is on the ram slot ont he mobo.\015\012\015\012DARK
