    stupid insanely small screws on that metal bracket thing! i finally found a screw driver that sorta works, but i will need to shave down the edge of it a little for a better fit

    so its still really easy if you actually have the one tool you need instead of doing it ghetto style and fucking shit up?

    Go get a set of jewelers screwdrivers, trust me, you will find they come in handy quite a bit.

    Werd. It's really not that bad. In fact, it's a piece of cake procedure. As previously stated, just need the right tools :hs:

    Those are usually TOO small. The jewelers set comes with a good assortment I've found. Home Depot, Wal-Mart, Target, all sell the sets.

    it took my less than 5 mins to change out my ram with the right sized screw driver that cost $2.50 at my local hardware store.

    i have a jewelers set, the smallest one just barely works...if i slipped, i would strip out the screw

    i agree that it's easy if you have the right tool
