Dell Inspiron 1300 Memory Installation Guide

Removing the Memory Module

CAUTION: Before working inside your Dell™ computer, read the safety instructions in the Product Information Guide.

CAUTION: To prevent static damage to components inside your computer, discharge static electricity from your body before you touch any of your computer's electronic components. You can do so by touching an unpainted metal surface.

1. Ground yourself by touching one of the metal connectors on the back of the computer.

NOTE: If you leave the area, ground yourself again when you return to the computer.

2. Turn the computer over, loosen the captive screws on the memory module/Mini PCI cover, and then remove the cover.

NOTICE: To prevent damage to the memory module connector, do not use tools to spread the memory-module securing clips.

3. If you are replacing a memory module, remove the existing module:
  • a. Use your fingertips to carefully spread apart the securing clips on each end of the memory module connector until the module pops up.
  • b. Remove the module from the connector

    Replacing the Memory Module

    1. Ground yourself and install the new memory module:
  • a. Align the notch in the module edge connector with the tab in the connector slot.
  • b. Slide the module firmly into the slot at a 45-degree angle, and rotate the module down until it clicks into place. If you do not feel the click, remove the module and reinstall it.

    2. Replace the memory module/Mini PCI cover and tighten the screws.

    NOTICE: If the cover is difficult to close, remove the module and reinstall it. Forcing the cover to close may damage your computer.

    3. Insert the battery into the battery bay, or connect the AC adapter to your computer and an electrical outlet.

    4. Turn on the computer.

    As the computer boots, it detects the additional memory and automatically updates the system configuration information.
