Thank you! Your photographs and simple directions gave me the courage to try this. It’s kind of exhilarating to see those memory sticks pop up and then to hear them click in.

@curiousandcheap I'm glad I could help! It's really one of the simplest upgrades you can do as long as your laptop doesn't specifically block access to the RAM compartment, but most brands make a door like the one shown to make it easier.
