Because the latitude E6400 has just one screw to remove to access the upgradable guts, this process takes no more than 5 minutes to do. It's also very easy.

I assume that in Step 4, you install the new memory modules

Peter Bourke - Ответить

When/how to fit the new memory modules is unclear. I have a blue flashing A light and can't start up. Looking for solutions.

It would be helpful to add a link to troubleshooting info here

Instead of "assuming" why not READ all of Step 4; especially the second paragraph, which states: "Insert the new RAM into the empty slot, ensuring that the notch in the RAM lines up with the slot (see picture)."

In my case, I needed to add a second memory board (2nd memory slot). If possible, would be interesting to have this additional step included in the guide.
