Follow these steps to install a DIMM.

1.Unlock a DIMM socket by pressing the retaining clips outward.

2.Align a DIMM on the socket such that the notches on the DIMM match the breaks on the socket.

3.Firmly insert the DIMM into the socket until the retaining clips snap back in place and the DIMM is properly seated.
