  1. 1

    Power down the Wyse terminal unit and then unplug all cables from the unit. Remove the two screws located on the back of the terminal near the ports using a Phillips screwdriver.

  2. 2

    Insert a small flat edge screwdriver inside the square hole located on the back panel of the Wyse terminal in the upper right corner if you are facing the back of the terminal. Press inward and downward while pulling up on the cover of the Wyse terminal at the same time to remove the cover from the terminal.

  3. 3

    Locate the exsiting memory module toward the front of the terminal inside the unit. Push the clamps on the outside edges of the memory modules away from the module and then pull the memory module from the memory slot.

  4. 4

    Remove the clear strip from the thermal pad (included with the memory module) and place the pad in the same location where the memory module was located. Ensure that the textured side of the pad is facing up when the pad is positioned in the unit. Press down on the pad to secure it in place.

  5. 5

    Remove the textured strip from the thermal pad. Insert the metal connector edge of the new memory module into the memory slot and press the top edge of the module toward the memory slot until the module clamps move into the memory module and snap in place.

  6. 6

    Place the top cover back onto the Wyse unit and secure it with the two screws previously removed.
