HP Compaq Business Notebook nx9000 Series - Installing Additional RAM (Memory)

Introduction
The notebook has two slots that hold two RAM modules. At least one slot contains a RAM module installed at the factory. Both slots can be used to expand the notebook's RAM.
Installing a RAM expansion module
Use PC2100 DDR-266 MHz or higher RAM only.
A small Phillips screwdriver will be required for the installation.
  caution:
The internal components of the notebook are extremely sensitive to static electricity and can be permanently damaged by it. Handle the RAM module only by its edges. Before installing the memory module, discharge your body’s static electricity by touching the metal shielding around the connectors on the back of the notebook.
  1. Click Start, Turn Off Computer, and Turn Off.
  2. Important: unplug the AC adapter, if present, and remove the battery.
  3. Turn the unit bottom-side up, loosen the screws holding the RAM cover, and remove the cover.
  4. Insert the RAM board into the connector at about a 30 degree angle until it is fully inserted. Then press down at both sides until both latches snap closed. Match the notebook to models presented in Figures 1 and 2.
