    Default ASRock ION 3D 152D how to install RAM

    Hi,

    I have brought and installed RAM in many different types of PCs over the years so I'm not a "newbie" at this. But, trying to install RAM into the ASRock ION 3D 152D mini-PC has me totally stumped at the moment. The RAM slots on the motherboard doesn't have the normal plastic clips that you see in most motherboards or even the clips that you see in laptops (where you install the chip at an angle and then push the RAM chip flat). Instead it has these metal clips where both sides at the bottom of the clip have these small metal "pegs" (for a better word) which have to be placed into the holes at the bottom of the RAM (I'm guessing at an angle). Then somehow, if you were successful at doing this, you have to push the RAM chip vertical and then push it in the slot.

    I haven't been able to do any of this .

    Any advice?

    Hi Emily at ASRock TSD,

    Would it possible for you to upload the instructions on how to install the RAM modules to this post? Or is there something that stops you from doing so? It would be beneficial for everyone who buys this model in the future and has the same issue.

    Thanks.

    I can't work this out... I feel like I'm going to break something if I keep trying to get this in.

    Did anyone have any success??

    Hi,

    This was a pain in the ass... This small computer makes it hard to get the fingers around.

    This is what i did.

    1. You have little space, but you have to put the SO-Dimm ram from the side the slot facing the cabinet. (the hardshell).
    You need to have the ram touching (or almost talking about maybe 1cm) the shiny/metallic wall of the cabinet and press it into the slot, while holding it in appox 30 degrees. You will then feel it goes in.
    The first time I did it from the other side, facing the other ram chip and that doesen't work!

    2. Then you have to raise it up straight while pressing both metal clips to the sides (as normal plastic clips). This should be done by two person; one raising the ram and one holding both clips to the sides while this is done.
    I did it alone by jerking it step by step, while pressing/raising the ram with one hand, and the other hand pressing the fu##ing sharp clips one after the other. It didn't feel nice and I thought the ram or the ram slot itself would break.
    But it clicked in:)

    All is working and I have 4gb ram now.

    Br,
    Bernt
