Need to add memory to my Dell Dimension 2400 for faster internet use

I was told I need more memory for my computer. The service guy said a 512 stick of DDR1, but I do not know the pins or speed of my computer. I got it in the year 2003. It has a Intel(R) Celeron(R) cpu with2.20GHz.

Can a dell dimension 2400 have 2 GB of memory, right now I have 1 GB


Please open up your pc and make sure the RAM card is inserted correctly, if it is inserted correctly, it is probably that the Ram has gone faulty and you will need to replace it, but they are so cheap.
Hope this helps

I currently have just 256mps of memory ram on my dell dimension 2400. i want to upgrade. my manual says the maxium is 1024 mbs. can i install 1gb of ram or should i get 512 mbs? i have windows xp os. thank...


1024 is 1 gig of ram. Some older motherboards require you to put in ram in pairs but I don't think your system is one of those but if you have manual or can download manual you should check to be sure. If you don't need a pair then yes you can remove the 256 meg stick and add a 1 gig stick or you can put in 2 512 meg sticks. Should run a lot better as windows recommends at least 512 megs of ram.

Upgraded Dell Dimension 3100 memory to 2 Gigs - Windows XP fails


Did you add the two sticks with the 512 or remove the 512 and add the two 1gb sticks? Try booting the machine with ONLY the 1gb sticks in.

Your machine supports 1gb modules but they can't be higher than 533MHz. Check that the memory you purchased was either PC3200 (400MHz) or PC4200 (533MHz) and is 1.8v. If you post the part number off of one of the modules I can look it up for you.

Trying to log on to Dimension 2400, but won't come on power is going thru. AB light in back is yellow


Okay, That helps,
What did you do to the computer *prior* to this issue?
You need to look at a few things. Remove all memory sticks except one.
Try to boot. If it does work, then you have a bad memory stick.
Add another stick and so on.
if you have a Video card in a slot, remove card and relocate to another slot (IF RAM does not fix).
Make sure CPU is fully seated as well.
Can you boot to safe mode using F8 ?
lets get the first 2 things done first tho.
Thanks for the fast reply!!!

Dell 2400 ram upgrade problem


RAM can be finicky so first test all memory slots with a known good stick (your 512MB). Make sure you're starting from a complete power down and you get a POST beep (hopefully your system is set up to beep when it powers on) and everything loads up all the way through to your OS.

Once you do that with all your memory slots test with the new stick by itself in all memory slots. If neither of the memory slots work with the new stick but you verify that it works in another system you should then check your BIOS settings and RAM timings to ensure compatibility with your stick. If you can't find the timing on the RAM stick itself, look up the manufacturer's part number for the information.

Good luck!

Added a memory stick to my Dell 2400 Desktop computer and the monitor, mouse, & keyboard won't work


Hi

The supported Memory types for Dimension 2400 Series is PC2100 (266-MHz) or PC2700 (333-MHz) DDR SDRAM (non-ECC). Supported Memory capacities are 128, 256, or 512MB and a Max if 1GB (1024MB).

The first obvious question is does the new 512MB Memory module meet the above specification? Some Memory modules are able to steep down speed.

If it does, then first ensure the new memory module is properly installed. Take ESD (ElectroStatic Discharge) precautions or you may damage the new memory module and/or the system board.

To proceed compare the system beeps and diagnostics lights color and sequence to the Advanced Troubleshooting guide.

It is possible that the new memory is DOA (Dead On Arrival). Or there is a new fault on the system. If you have access to another compatible system, you may test the new and old memory modules. You may also swap the new and old memory modules to determine if the memory slot is at fault.

Lastly, if you remove the new memory module, does the system complete POST (Power On Self Test)?. If it does you may indeed have a DOA or incompatible part.
