You typically squeeze the sides of the RAM to
lift it out.
Forget the idea of a wrist strap, as that is for
sighted folk who may not rest their arm on the chassis while doing the
work. The wrist strap is to discharge static from your body, but I
believe that it would not be possible to non-visually do this without touching

Subject: Laptop updating
Good afternoon all,
With the talk regarding windows 7 and 10, I recently
noticed my laptop is windows 7, as well. I will update this to windows 10 and
although being a Dell XPS 15Z model, it is as slow as a herd of turtles
comparing to my desktop which has a SD HD. I’ll be putting in a SD HD,
upgrading the ram from 4 to 8 and therefore, my question...
When I take the SD HD and have it as main and then use the
older 7200 HD as a back-up drive, is this more difficult and I should have a
computer store do the work or is is all this work able to be done? I will have
unprofessional sighted assistance and have worked on and built tower systems
but with the laptop and the smaller size, is this more than I should
Also, I would be attempting to do all the shuffling of
information from the old hard drive to the new SD with the latest
version/update of Jaws 2019.
Thanks for all comments,
