1. Shut down of course
2. Remove power lead AND battery
3. Turn laptop over so that base is uppermost
4. unscrew and remove panel covering ram
5. Touch with both hands something metal to discharge any static in your body
6. Look carefully how the ram is installed normally two small clips one each end of the ram stick - gently move them away from the stick of ram - both together
7. The ram should then be already slightly lifted from the slot
8. Take hold of the stick by the edges, not by the components on the stick - lieft it out NOTE carefully the way it is inserted with the notch
9. Place it on a piece of card, or similar, but not on carpet
10, Discharge any static again in your body
11. Repeat with other stick of ram
12. Take the first new stick of ram hold it only by the edges. insert it in the slot from which you removed the second stick as that on a laptop is usually underneath the first to some degree
13 Push gently until the clips engage
14. repeat with the second stick
NOTE when removing the new ram from its packaging do not place on carpet whilst you are preparing to install
This may help

Good luck with it.
Are you up to date with all updates for windows and flash and java, a number of security weaknesses have recently been discovered in IE, Adobe flash and you should also update JAVA
If you are using Chrome it automatically updates flash with a new edition of chrome.
If you are using IE the latest updates from Windows include the security update for IE
The flash update is
to check edition of flash go control panel Flash icon open it and click the advanced tab - it will tell you the version

You will only need it if you encouter a download etc where it tells you that JAVA is needed.
Usually it will the provide a link to install
I would not concern yourself too much with installing it now
When it is installed a failure to keep it up to date is a security weakness.
