Installing the New Module
Installing the new module is relatively easy. Insert the new module in the open memory slot at a 45° angle, paying attention to match the notch located on the memory module with the notch located on the memory slot.
After inserting the memory module, you need to push it until it reaches the end of the slot, as we show in Figure 13.
Then push the module down until you hear the click from the module locks, which means that the module is locked in the slot.
After that your new module will be installed. Close your notebook following in reverse the way you used to open it. In our case, putting the keyboard back in place, pushing it forward, and screwing it back to the notebook.
Turn your notebook on, and run Everest once again to check if the new module is being correctly recognized and if it is working well. As you can see in Figure 16, our new 1 GB module is being recognized correctly, and our computer now has 1,280 MB.
If your new memory module is not being recognized at all, you should remove it and install it again. You probably didn’t push it until it reached the end of the slot (Figure 13).
If your computer is not recognizing the full capacity of your new memory module (for example, a 1 GB module being recognized as 512 MB or less) this means that you installed a module with a capacity greater than your notebook is capable of handling.
