Question about Computers & Internet
It came with 512MB RAM. I replaced the original one with 2 GB Transcend DDR2 JM66QLU-2G. Can one more RAM of the same type ( 2GB) be added to it?
Windows 32 bit supports up to 4GB, but will only give 3GB as usable. 64 bit is a whole different story, but keep in mind that most software is not written for large amounts of RAM.

YES THE FREQUENCY OF BOTH RAMS DO NOT MATCH ... THATS BOOTING WITH EACH BUT ONLY ONE BY ONE ... YOU NEED RAMS OF SAME FREQUENCY AND SYSTEM WILL SUPPORT BOTH OF THEM TOGETHER ...

Your memory appears compatible with your model of laptop. It is possible that you have a bad stick of memory. Try installing the sticks 1 at a time and boot up with each stick separately and see what happens. If 1 of the sticks allows you to boot but the other does not then I would contact PNY for a replacement stick. Just to double check here you are installing 2 gigs total not 2 2gig sticks for a total of 4 gigs. Max memory for Dell Inspiron laptops is 2 Gigs.

look system performance like gettin slow depends on the condition of hard disk actually after 3 years of use and sometimes new hard drive also gets damaged and slow down bcoz of jerks and
bumps during transportation it degrades there performance so always
carry ur notebook in a good carry case ,hard disk gets weak and its strength goes down it becomes slow in loading OS giving data to programs hence slow down the performance of the whole system
sytem doesnt depend much on ram it depends on condition of hard drive as well, if u would have asked me my answer is replace hard disk instead of RAM from 1gb to 2 gb offcourse more is better but in this case hard disk will help u
if u want to check the status and age of ur hard drive go to www.binarysense.com and download hddlife for notebooks from there a trial version will also show u the health of ur hard drive
so my friend if u need a new boost in sys performance u need to replace hard disk with a new 250 GB atleast 5400 RPM but for best u can go for 160/250 GB 7200 RPM and HITACHI is the best brand among all manufacturers as i have tested and experts also prefer that, ur notebook might carry 120 or 160 Gb 4200 RPM as far as i know
pls rate me FIXYA if i have fixed ur problem

the problem is the frequency ...you have to set into bios on the memory to read it on the lower one..so it will read both ....also if it is booting with both on but not showing into the windows properties..you have to reinstall the operating system to do that ...In-fact this is a standard procedure when you upgrade the Ram memory ..even if it reads it all ok ..you still have to reinstall...
You was kinda messy in explanations and I didnt quite understand what kinda memory you put in and it do not boot at all..but remember that this laptop will not read anything bigger than !G on one slot ..and ..if it reads them separately ...but when you put them together it is not even starting on reading devices..than you have to insert them and short the bios to reset all to the factory defaults with the memory in ...in that moment the bios settings will force to the lowest frequency ..in this case the one from the 512 unit ..
