It's fairley simple, just locate the compartment for the ram is on the underside of the laptop, remove the door, and look in. (Make sure the laptop is turned OFF) you should see how many modules there are and what slots they are in. Make sure you ground yourself before touching anything, the modules are usually held in by a clip on the side. Pull the clip away from the module, it should pop up and you should be able to slide it out of the slot. There will be a sticker on the module listing its type, size, speed, and perhaps timing.
Note if the memory you ordered is faster then what you have in it, or vise versa, if you mix them together all the ram will run at the speed of the slowest ram module.
