First of all, you have to make sure that the RAM you're going to buy will be compatible with your computer.
I have always used Crucial's Memory Scanner, you don't necessarily have to buy from them but you get the idea of what kind/type of RAM you need to get.
For installing the RAM, it is really easy.
- Make sure you ground yourself first before touching the inside of the computer. You can do this by touching the metal part of the case.
- You do not need your windows XP CD because installing new RAM would not affect your OS.
- When you're installing, make sure you put it the right way. The RAM stick can only go one way, there's a gap in the middle of the stick which should match the RAM slot on your motherboard. Match it first before pushing the stick in the slot.
- When installing, best way would be to press one end with your thumb and there should be a "click" sound that tells you its locked in. Do the same for the other end.
Not sure if that's enough but that's all I can think of right now.
