Installing the Memory
To install memory into your Lenovo t500 computer, firstly switch off your computer and unplug all the cables that are connected to it.

Once you have taken out the battery, you need to find out the four screws that are marked with keyboard icons. Those screws are marks which imply that there lies the memory slot. Locate and remove them from the laptop. Open the screen after turning the laptop right side up.
Installing Into the Memory Slots
After you have taken out the screws, you will see that there are two memory slots available, one is the upper slot and second is the lower slot. You will see the DIMM in the lower slot. Pull the tabs to take out the memory module. It will pop up slightly.
Remove the memory module from the memory slot, which is the lower slot. Insert the new memory inside the memory slot, inserting the notched edge into the socket first. Remember, you have to install the DIMM in the lower slot, not the upper one.
