Memory Module, Mini PCI Card, and Devices: Dell Inspiron XPS and Inspiron 9100 Service Manual
Ensure that memory modules are installed in both connectors and that they are of
the same capacity. Install a memory module in the connector labeled "DIMM A" before you
install a module in the connector labeled "DIMM B." Insert memory modules at a 45-degree
angle to avoid damaging the connector.
4. Ground yourself and install the new memory module:
a. Align the notch in the module edge connector with the tab in the connector slot.
b. Slide the module firmly into the slot at a 45-degree angle, and rotate the module down
until it clicks into place. If you do not feel the click, remove the module and reinstall it.
If the memory module is not installed properly, the computer does not boot. No error
message indicates this failure.
5. Replace the cover and screw.
If the memory module cover is difficult to close, remove the module and reinstall it.
Forcing the cover to close may damage your computer.
