  1. (If needed) Prepare the server module for service and remove the faulty DIMM.

    See Preparing for Service and Remove a DIMM.

  2. Unpack the replacement DIMM and set it on an antistatic mat.

  4. Line up the replacement DIMM with the connector.

    Align the DIMM notch with the key in the connector, as in panel 3. This action ensures that the DIMM is oriented correctly. Panel 2 shows an incorrect alignment.

  5. Push the DIMM into the connector until the ejector tabs lock the DIMM in place.

    If the DIMM does not easily seat into the connector, verify that the orientation of the DIMM is correct. Never apply excessive force.

  6. Return the server module to operation.

    See Returning the Server Module to Operation.

  7. Verify the DIMM.

    See Verify a DIMM.
