Unscrew the cover over the ram, and carfully insert this the right way around so the slots line up, and push in firmly+gently at a 45 degree angle until the contacts are in, then push down flat. Don't force it, let the clips seat nicely.

just make sure you have the right kind of RAM. I usually do a quick scan at www.crucial.com.
