Make sure your computer is switched off with the power cord disconnected.
Use an anti-static lead if you have one and be careful to hold the RAM modules by the edges.
Make sure you insert them the right way round and don't try and force them.
If you check Crucial's site I do believe it has a video showing you how to fit RAM modules.
Please keep us posted about the outcome.
