Inserting Ram

  Rodz 20:07 26 Jul 2009

Never having looked inside a PC it seems daunting to me.
I have a five year old IBM Think Centre. It still does near enough what is required of it but have had to alter settings (with help) to allow it to take more virtual memory to run programmes.
The ram is 512 mb and I want to insert the same again.
I am told it is a relatively easy job on this machine as it hinges in order to obtain access (no screws).
Can you guide me through it, I have not bought the ram yet but am told its down to about £20 for 512mb now.

According to to the first click here my PC would certainly do with an upgrade.

I see now that when Crucible scans my PC they will send me the right bit.
