Let us know if that doesn't do the trick.

BTW, you shouldn't touch things like memory without anti-static protection. Small sparks can destroy electronics.

Here is the motherboard manual

Look at pages 17-20 for how to add memory. Make sure that you buy compatible memory sticks. Read the rules carefully.

Good luck! Let us know how it turns out.

lol, i remember i took apart a Dell at my high school... and instead of a simple removable side panel, the other side panel folds out with the motherboard on it :o
