To insert the memory module into the slot, align the memory module above the slot and make sure that the notch in the memory module is in the correct position. When the module is properly align, gently press down on both sides of the memory module downward into the slot. It should click into place and may push the clamps into place.

Note: If this is a memory upgrade and a memory module needs to be replaced, simply reverse steps 4 and 5 to properly remove a module prior to installing the new module.
