These days with new operating systems and programs demanding so much RAM, your computer will sometimes fall out of date faster than you expected. What's a very easy upgrade and affordable, and all laptops have a slot in the bottom where you can install RAM. Actually the panel says RAM right on it, again, I recommend getting a little case of these old screwdrivers, go to Radio Shack, Best Buy, any little place and they'll have these. You'll have them forever and they're so, so handy to have. Unscrew the panel that says RAM. Make sure you check with your manufacturer and you get the right RAM as well. You don't want to go putting the wrong RAM in. I already double checked, got the right RAM, you take it, and now there's a slot in the middle that you can see here, and you have to line it up with the slot in the bottom of the board. Put it in on this angle here, push it in and then push it down and then you'll hear a click. And there you have it, it's that simple. Put your panel back on, screw back in, tighten it down, and when you boot up your computer it'll automatically recognize the RAM. And you'll be flying on your new applications.
