Installing a memory module under the keyboard – Dell LATITUDE D400 User Manual
Ground yourself and install the new memory module:
Align the notch in the module edge connector with the tab in the connector slot.
Slide the module firmly into the slot at a 45-degree angle, and rotate the module down until it clicks into place. If you do not feel the click, remove
the module and reinstall it.
Replace the cover.
Insert the battery into the battery bay, or connect the AC adapter to your computer and an electrical outlet.
Turn on the computer.

In the Microsoft® Windows® XP operating system, click the Start button, click Help and Support, and then click Computer Information.
In Windows 2000, right-click the My Computer icon on your desktop, and then click the General tab.
