GA-Z68AP-D3 having trouble installing memory

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm currently working on a build right now and just finished attaching my CPU and heatsink. Moving on to memory, I can't seem to push it down into place. It won't go down or click the sides in. I've tried contacting their tech support and trying other channels. Help or advice? I would love a walkthrough step by step. I can't believe I'm having trouble installing memory mad.gif

My memory is the Samsung 8GB (2x4) 240 pin desktop memory. MV-3V4G3D

So I figured out the problem. I'm just really weak/scared.

That's a problem I've run into when dealing with anything new and expensive for the first time.

If you ever have to undo a bunch of snaps on a laptop cover, or removing the dash one a car.... Some pop right off others will break the plastic before releasing if you don't apply the pressure just right.

Caution is always worth while when dealing with an unknown, I've seen plenty of people hurt just because they made a poor assumption and had no real experience with something. I mean with a computer you're not going to get hurt but you could break something. Sometimes you have to push the RAM in so hard the whole motherboard bends.

I once worked on a case that had such poor structural support that when you laid it down, if you held it by the top with one hand while leaning it over the whole chassis would twist and you could see the motherboard warp.(I hope it was because it depended on the side panel for structural support) I was extra careful when I put it back into an upright position.....
