Introduction

This guide will walk you through the proper steps needed to replace the RAM in your Dell Inspiron 5680.

Make sure you have your replacement RAM and the screwdriver listed below ready before following the instructions detailed below.

When handling PC components it is important that you are properly grounded as a static discharge could potentially damage them. That is why the anti-static wristband is included in the tool list as an optional item. To use the wristband attach the clip to a metal object such as a computer case and attach the wrist strap to your wrist. If you do not wish to use the anti-static wristband you can also make sure you are grounded by periodically touching a metal object like your computer case.
