See Remove the DVD Tray.
- Press down and out on the release levers at both ends of the
DIMM slot (pane 1).
- Lift the DIMM up and out the chassis (pane 2).
- Set the DIMM aside.

- Consider your next steps:
If you removed the DIMM as part of a replacement operation, install a new DIMM. See Install a DIMM.
If you removed the DIMM as part of another component's removal or installation procedure, return to that procedure. See Component Service Task Reference for assistance.
