    • Push both latches towards the center of the battery.

    • Revome the battery by pushing it away from the laptop.

    • Set the battery away from the laptop.

    • With the bottom of the laptop facing up, locate the RAM cover.

    • The RAM is covered by the panel with four columns of vents.

    • Locate the screw (Length: 4.8 mm) holding down the panel, which is near the edge of the laptop. Unscrew it with your phillips #0 screwdriver.

    • Use your fingers to slide the cover away from the laptop. (It will only slide a few millimeters)

    • Once the panel is out of its locked position, it can be lifted out without any resistance.

    • To remove the RAM, use sharp end of a spudger to push the two silver tabs (see picture) away from the green RAM chip.

    • When both silver tabs are moved to the side, one edge of the RAM chip will pop up from its original position.

    • Use your fingers to grab the raised edge of the RAM and pull the chip away from its connection to the laptop.

    • To install the new RAM, grip the new chip exactly the same way as you gripped the old chip when you removed it.

    • Insert the gold leads of the RAM into the connection at the same angle the original chip was raised at after the tabs were released.

    • There is a raised tab on the connection that mates with a slit in the RAM to ensure you do not put the chip in upside down.
