Users may be confused about how to use extra RAM

First of all, laptops use SODIMMs, which are smaller than desktop memory modules. Their memory sockets have locking tabs; once unlatched, a spring will often push up the old modules for easy removal. When upgrading desktop systems, memory speed and timing can be an issue. Many motherboards are unable to simultaneously run modules in each of their memory sockets at full-speed. One strategy is to buy modules a speed grade higher than the motherboard supports, and then dial them down. We once ran an X58 motherboard with 12GB of DDR3 RAM; it had six 1.600MHz modules running at 1.333MHz. As is known to all, most memory sockets have two locking tabs on either side that flip down to release memory modules for removal. Some motherboards may have a locking tab on only one side. If you're replacing old modules with new memory, unlatch one or both tabs to release and lift out the old module. For example, HP's specification suggests the maximum memory capacity of 4GB may not apply to all laptops in the 500 series. Two different Intel mobile chipsets are used in this line-up: the Mobile Intel GLE960 Express, which supports Intel Celeron and Celeron M processors, and the Mobile Intel GME965 Express, which also supports Intel Core 2 Duo chips. Only the GME965 supports 4GB of RAM; the GLE960 is limited to 2GB of RAM. And users know that laptops of various brands have various RAM upgrading situations.

Slide the module into the slot and press it into the laptop to latch it in place. Check to see whether the system boots up before replacing the compartment cover. And finally, to ensure you're inserting the new RAM modules the right way round, align the key notch with the corresponding ridge in the memory socket. Be very gentle when inserting new DIMMs. Push the new module straight down into the socket until the locking tabs latch the module into place. Double-check all the tabs are locked and the module is firmly in place.
