RAM Installation...

I know this is going to sound stupid, but I got a 1gig ram stick for Christmas, and I would really like to install it, but I can't get the back hatch off my 12" powerbook G4. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Christopher

Thanks, but....

I can't get the screws out of the memory hatch. My fingers are raw from trying to unscrew them with "the black stick". Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Christopher

OMG... BE VERY CAREFUL!!! The screws are VERY easy to strip. It should be easy if you have the exact sized screw driver. If you use one that is the incorrect size, you'll strip the head of the screw. If you do... Good luck... You'll probably have to have it dremeled out.
