Hi, I'm Gary Malec and today I'm going to teach you how to add memory to a notebook computer. First thing you need to do is well have memory to add and second is find where you add the memory. Now flip over your computer. Here you have a lot of different access panels on the bottom of your lap top. Here's one for the battery, there's an icon. Hard drive with the icon. And here it even says RAM on this one, they don't always say that but one little screw. Make sure you have a little electronic screwdrivers. Don't just use a butter knife or something that will destroy it. Now nice and easy. This is a very simple task. Take the screw out. Pop open the lever. Now here I have an empty slot so all I need to do is take my memory, slide it in nicely till its all in and then push down. There you go. That's all there is to it. Now just put your little cover back on, screw it in and start your computer up. Now if you had a memory stick in here just make sure your replace it with one that's bigger. And you'll see an upgrade.
