The bottom of your laptop should look something like this:

You want to unscrew the compartment that has the memory inside of it. Should have 2 small screws.....

Next you want to remove the exsisting memory by lifting up on the module and sliding it out....then insert the new memory , and push it back down, as shown in this picture:

When you reboot your system for the first time , it should stop before it boot's to tell you that the system's memory has changed.

I have a dell dimension 4600. It has original memory cards installed. 2 256 MB for a total of 512 ram. I recently tried to install 1 GB memory card. When I start up computer it beeps several times,...


hello

several beeps in a system is caused by a memory issue -- If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.

Sometimes when the computer is moved and/or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.

If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.

If you have more than one stick of memory try removing all but one stick of memory and boot the computer. If this does not resolve the issue try removing that stick of memory and try one of the other sticks of memory.

the specs can be found at this link
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4600/en/4600i/sm/specs.htm

the system you have is upgradable to 4G of RAM, and this RAM must be installed in equal pairs
so if you have 4 slots to insert memory in (assuming you will retain the 2 256M) , you must install the other slots by 2 512M, 2 1G or 2 2G DIMMs -- make sure you isntall exact same DIMMs, dont mix memory makers or specs, other than what Dell specifies

memory type must be
PC2700 (333-MHz) or PC3200 (400-MHz) DDR SDRAM
(non-ECC)

i hope this helps --

MY THIS QUESTION IS ONLY FOR CONCAKA


AGP stands for accellerated graphics port and is a slot for a AGP video card to be added. These cards can come with amounts of memory embedded in them up to 512meg and will only go into a computer with a AGP slot. these cards do not fall into the 2 gig motherboard limit. That limit refers to the system RAM, not the ram on the video card.
If you go to START- RUN -type "dxdiag" without the """" in the box. the direct x tool will tell you how much of that 2 gig limit is installed on your computer. at that point you will need to do therough math and figure out how much more memory you need to add to reach the 2 gig max.
Hope this helps you.. Regards..

I have dell optiplex gx 150 beeps 6 times and a and b led is amber and c and d led is green


the 6 beep codes will be in a specific timing i.e. two beeps, a space 2 more beeps, and another space and 2 more beeps.

Looks like it may be a memory problem according to the lights.

ad54556.gif Possible memory failure

Reseat all DIMMs and restart the system to retest.

Here is the link to the beep codes and diagnostic lights for your dell optiplex gx 150 HERE

The Beep codes are in Table 2 and the diagnostic lights are in Table 3.

Is the video card built into the motherboard? If not you can try replacing just the video card to see if that works. Otherwise I am afraid you may have to replace the motherboard.
