don't have experience with that particular model, however usually with most modern laptops it's just a small door on the bottom.... usually held on with one screw. They are pretty much idiot proof, in that they are keyed and can only go in in one direction..... however the hardest part is making sure you have compatibile memory.... are you sure yours will use pc2700 ddr? if not go to crucial.com and look it up on their site....

having said all that, if there is not a door on the bottom then it is probably under the keyboard and you may want to take it to someone that has experience.

usually that is all you have to do, though sometimes it will want to go into bios setup... if it does just check that the right amount of ram is listed and then save and exit.... it should list how to do that at the bottom of the screen.
