below to install, check, or remove a RAM module on your DiskStation.
To install the RAM module:
1 Press and hold the power button until you hear a beep sound to shut down your DiskStation. Disconnect all
cables from your DiskStation to prevent any possible damage.
2 The RAM modules are located at the bottom of DS1618+.
3 Remove the 2 screws that secure the bottom lid. Lift off the lid and place it to the side. You will see one 4GB
module pre-installed.

4 Insert the new memory module in the slot:
a Align the notch on the gold edge of the module with the notch in the memory slot.
b Tilt the card and insert the module into the slot. Make sure the module is properly inserted.
c Push the memory module with moderate pressure into the memory slot until you hear a click.

5 Replace the bottom lid. Replace and tighten the 2 screws you removed in step 3.

To make sure DiskStation recognizes the new memory capacity:

1 Install DiskStation Manager (DSM). (See the next chapter for more information.)
2 Log in to DSM as admin or a user belonging to the administrators group.
3 Check Total Physical Memory in Control Panel > Info Center.
If your DiskStation does not recognize the memory or does not start up successfully, confirm that the memory is
installed correctly.

To remove the RAM Module:

1 Follow step 1 to 3 of the “To install the RAM module” section to shut down your DiskStation, disconnect the
cables, and then remove the bottom lid.
2 Push the levers on both sides of the memory module outwards. The module will be released from the slot.
3 Hold the memory module by its notches and remove it from the slot.

4 Replace the bottom lid. Replace and tighten the screws removed in step 1.
5 Reconnect the cables removed in step 1. Now, you may turn on your DiskStation.
