7.1. BEFORE YOU INSTALL
Before you start, make sure you have the following:
- Your computer manual. To install memory, you must open the computer box (chassis) and locate the memory sockets. You may need to unplug cables and peripherals, and re-install them afterward. The manual will most likely provide instructions specific to your computer.
- A small screwdriver. Most computer chassis assemble with screws. The screwdriver also comes in handy if the notches on memory sockets are too tiny for your fingers.
