    • Unplug the SATA cable at the base of the DVD drive circled in blue. This cable will have a lot of tension on it, but do not worry. Just be careful not to yank on it too much.

    • You will then unscrew the screw securing the DVD drive to the case (circled in red). Once the screw is removed, remove the DVD drive and set to the side.

    • You will insert the new card. Push the side opposite to the latch in first, being sure that the notch in the connector matches the location on the ram card. If these do not fit, DO NOT FORCE THE CARD IN. Rotate the card and try again. Insert at a ~45 degree angle and push straight down into the socket, being sure that the latch clicks.
