Faulty RAM is a common cause of many computers being unable to boot and is therefore easily replaceable. While performing this repair, ensure that your laptop is completely turned off. As with any time you open a computer, it is important to wait a few minutes after shutting down and unplugging the machine to ensure that all capacitors have properly discharged. You should also be careful when doing any work inside the device as any scratches or dents to the motherboard may result in further damages.

It is important to ensure that both RAM sticks are the exact same model. There is a sticker on each stick identifying its basic specs, manufacturer, and exact model. The best way to ensure that two sticks are identical is to buy them in a pack of two.

Gently push down on each of the sticks until they lay flat above the motherboard. The two locking arms should audibly click into place when the stick is properly set.
