To install the memory open the bank clips and insert the memory, remember do not press to hard the motherboard you can break it and you do not want that. Before attempting to install the memory make you sure the memory is in the correct position look at the bottom of the memory stick and you will see a small division that division has to fit into the memory bank.

Ok now your computer memory is installed, close your computer and turn it on. After your computer is turned on do the following check:

Go to Start Control Panel Systems

Under the general tab you will see your computer information, how much memory does your computer operating system reads? Good and congratulations now your computer will run faster than a jaguar.
