I’ll let you know how it goes. Any

squeeze the sides of the RAM to lift it out.
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 the chassis.

pull away from where it slides in, there is usually a

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 attempt?
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,
