  • Using a plastic spudger, gently pry up the uppermost board fixture. This is the Memory (RAM).

Beware: there might be a little plastic 'bridge' piece that goes around the memory connector (mine had one that isn't in this guide) which needs to be removed first before removing the RAM card. It was both difficult to remove and fragile (broke on one side during removal).

  • Once the old Memory board is removed, replace it with the new Memory board.
