1. Open the case and look
2. Go to www.
3. Yes and no, first shut down the PC, then open the case, then put it in. Make sure you install it the correct direction.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the ain't your variables, it's your constant.

Step 4. Run download Memtest, burn it to a CD, boot the computer off the CD and let memtest run for a few hours.
