    • Remove the RAM module from the DIMM slot.

    • The RAM modules must be installed in pairs, with one module per bank (top and bottom).

    • When reinstalling the RAM, make sure to note the notch on the DIMM slot. This notch needs to line up with the corresponding gap on the RAM module.

    When installing new memory, note the orientation of the notch in the row of pins - about two fifths from the front of the computer - in relation to the matching ridge in the slots.

Major thing to note, you must install RAM in pairs. You can't just install one card on the top and not one on the bottom. Pairs start from the center and move outwards.
