Step 3 RAM Installation  ¶ 

  • Release the tabs on each side of the module by simultaneously pushing each tab away from the RAM module.

  • These tabs lock the module in place and releasing them will cause the module to "pop" up.

  • After the RAM module has popped up, pull it straight out of its socket.

  • Repeat this process if a second RAM module is installed.

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.
