Actually, following some guidelines, replacing RAM isn't all that hard. If tools just don't fit your hand, perhaps you should stimulate your local economy and help feed a starving techie. Sometimes, a memory replacement is a simple operation. But the static electricity thing applies to all parts, including things like CD-Rom drives with exposed circuit boards or pins, or hard drives. Poorly-seated memory isn't uncommon. Damaged slots aren't uncommon either, and you don't want to ever try to force anything into place. Most DIMM-style slots have locks/ejectors on them and you can usually tell that they're in all the way. But anyone who's built several computers can tell you that anybody can and will make mistakes.
Herk: Would you semi-agree that adding RAM is maybe something best left to a professional or other trusted expert?
