Step 1: Locate More Ram and a Computer
When buying extra ram, make sure the ram is compliant with your motherborad for example mobo's designed for ddr2 won't work with a mobo designed for ddr, also make sure it is a compliant frequency most main boards accept more then one frequency. After selecting the proper ram find a flat surface to begin work, make sure it is a flat surface such as a table or counter. Make sure it not carpet. After setting the computer down open it up. Ensure you are discharged by occasionaly touching a metal object. Inside the computer you see the main board, look for the slots next to each other. Get out the additional ram, check the slot and the ram to see if they each match up. Make sure the securing for the ram are open.
Step 2: Insert the Ram
After making sure one last time on everything (including discharging your body) Insert the ram all the way making sure its seated all the way shut the slots securing the ram in place. Then trying to jiggle it around it make sure its sercured in place. Shut the computer and boot up if running xp it will display a screen "the amount of system memory has changed" Continue and have fun computing!
