      To remove the memory (DIMM):

      1. Place the system in the service position
      2. Turn off the system and all attached peripheral devices.
      3. Disconnect all power cords and all external signal cables. For easier access to components, place the system on its side. This is the recommended service position.
      4. Remove the side cover. Press the cover-release button on the right side cover, slide the cover to the rear and lift it off.
      5. Remove the DIMM. Push out on the two latches.
      6. Lift the DIMM out of the socket and place it on a static protected surface. Use the same procedure to remove any remaining DIMMs.
        Note: Cables have been repositioned for viewing purposes only.
