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.

Your local shop should be able to direct you?

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