Hi. Once you install the RAM, close the case, plug everything back in and then restart. The BIOS will recognize the new RAM. Once you login to your user name, it would be a nice idea to make sure everything works right. Please do this for me...

Click on Start, and then click on Run. In the Run box, type dxdiag and press enter.

A small gray window might appear. Click on the Yes button.

You will now see a large gray window appear, which is showing you your computer information. Look down near the bottom where it says Memory: ... Does it show the right amount?

Keep in touch :whistling:
