For the first time I saw the inside of my computer :D

Now, I bought 2gb ram but the person who should have came to insert it, couldn't. So.. I was on my on. I opened the case, saw the 3 slots for RAM and the one was filled with a chip(the 512 I had previously i guess). At both ends of the other 2 slots there were some kind of levers. I pushed them, and inserted the chips. I pushed the chips with my fingers and the levers closed themselves. I think I've done it successfully. By to be sure, how can I check if I've done everything correctly? Right clicking my computer, properties, it says I have 2.50gb. But still.. is there another way to check?

Well, it's telling you the correct amount and when you turned it on you didn't get any beep code warnings. I'd say you're good to go
