How to Guide – Installing RAM

I’ve been meaning to get into some “how to guides” this year but found a great opportunity when upgrading the Windows Home Server last weekend. It’s my first one and while I covered everything that I thought was worth mentioning I am still working out the format for these videos.
At any rate,  I cover some important points, including:

  • different types of RAM,
  • discharging static electricity prior to installation,
  • avoiding force during the installation.

I know for a stack of people, their computers are very much black boxes and opening them up can be a scary experience (much like when people look under the hood of their cars and have no idea of which thing does what or how things might break if improperly modified). Adding RAM isn’t a difficult thing to do when you know how to do it and hopefully the video will give you some confidence in doing so.

Of course, I do have to mention that anything you do to your computer is at your own risk (even a RAM upgrade). Just be careful and avoid the use of excessive force and you should be fine.

That said, enjoy the video!

FYI – the video will be available in up to 720p (YouTube can take a little while to process the higher resolutions) if you right click on the video and choose “Watch on YouTube” and change the resolution setting.
