Can I install any ram memorie cards that will fit my Dell gx260

I have a Dell Optiplex gx 260. It only has one ram memorie card in it ( the one it came with ) with one open slot for another one. I have numerouse ram memorie cards that I have taken out of other computers.

My question is : Can I just insert one of those into the open slot and it will give me more ram and not hurt my computer?

Thank you so much. It just runs slow and wanted to ad more ram.

The memory has to be the same type that is in your PC. Not necessarily the same manufacturer.

Your PC came with PC2700 DDR memory Dimms.
If you have DDR memory sticks from your other PC, then it may work.
Just make sure you unplug the PC and touch the metal case before you pick up and install the memory.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Optiplex gx 260 steady amber light - done all things on dell website - still doesnt turn on. got a new PSU and it still has the same problem. theres a whirring sound which is the fan and the power supply...


Steady Amber Power LED generally indicative of a failed MB. Remove all Memory, Expansion Cards, peripheral items, if still same, replace the motherboard. If you get a Green LED with jusr RAM in system, then an expansion card or peripheral might be the issue. 95% sure it is mothebroard

When ordering ram memory for wifes computer


Go with Crucial. I recently used then as the vendor to get memory for a middle school and all of their memory fit with no problems, the shipping was fast and the scanner worked with new and old computers. I would go for the pc2700, although your wife's computer can take both types, faster is better and the higher the number the faster the ram.

If this is happening on all workstations you should look at your network settings and verify that your DNS settings are correct.  Also look in the error logs on the server to see if it is fillingup with system or application errors.
