Adding more memory to that model is fruitless. You are better of buying a new computer. I think the memory limit on that model is 1 gig.

SOURCE: cpu upgrade dell dimension 5100

Hi, according to the Dell website you have a LGA775 socket on your motherboard. Therefore, you can only buy processors that fit into this socket. Here is a list of some offered by Intel that will work: Celeron D 325 2.53 GHz Celeron D 330 2.66 GHz Celeron D 335 2.8 GHz Celeron D 340 2.93 GHz Pentium4 520 2.8 GHz Pentium4 530 3.0 GHz Pentium4 540 3.2GHz Pentium4 550 3.4 GHz Pentium4 560 3.6 GHz Pentium4 570 3.8 GHz The processors that won't work are the ones that are not compatible with this socket. Everytime you look up a cpu it will tell you which socket it is designed for. To buy a cpu you will need to decide: The brand you want. The speed of the cpu that you want. Extras i.e. Hyperthreading, etc. How much you are willing to pay for it. Then you can narrow your search as you stick within your limits. Let me know if you have more questions. Good Luck

SOURCE: Dell Dimension 5100 Fan Replacement

rearward removal, there are a couple of latches you have to push so you can slide it backward (towards the processor end) and lift it up, one of the latch is next to Hard Disk compartment and the other one is on the other side. dont forget to clean the thermal paste on the processor and heatsink and reapply new thermal paste when you put everyhing back.

SOURCE: I need to know how much memory I can add to my PC?

Your machine's max memory is 2GB. It takes several flavors of ram so here is a link that lists the types of memory you can use in your machine.

Note: I don't necessarily endorse or recommend the seller's link I've included, it's simply for illustrative purposes.

SOURCE: How do I return our Dimension 5100 Dell Desktop back to it's original state? Lost the recovery CD.

Have you tried restoring your operating system to a previous restore point?
To do this click on start- all programs - accessories - system tools - system restore. Then choose a date from the calendar which corresponds to a time before you began to experience problems on your PC. Follow the on-screen instructions to restore your PC to its original state.
Note that a system restore will remove any programs which were installed AFTER the selected restore point date.
Hope this helps.
Regards,
Graemevm

Hi, I have a dell dimension 5100. I inserted a 1gb ram but it was the wrong one. I took it out and replaced it with the old ones. Now the computer doesn't boot properly - turns on but doesn't load...


Remove all the memories and insert them again, make sure you insert them in the proper way as the slot is keyed.
Memory issues can be identified by the beep sounds.
If you have more than one memory, remove one and insert only one of them and try to boot.
Hope this will help.
