There should be no problem because the new RAM speed is faster than your old RAM, but your system cannot make use of the extra speed unless you can change it in the BIOS setting. Your BIOS should be able to support 2.0Gb, but check your specification, go to the DELL WEB site if you don't have the specs.

    Go to the to get a copy of the manual for you model laptop. The best way to get the correct manual is to use the Service Tag number, it is printed on a label on the bottom of your laptop.

Removing the battery prioo to memory upgrade Is it oK to upgrade the memory to 2GB

Go to the Crucial Memory Website and run the memory scan tool online. It will tell you how much memory the system can use, how much is installed and in which slots and best of all, exactly what memory your system requires for an upgrade.
There is lots of different memory to choose from and this takes the work out of it.

Adding computer memory

The only thing you could do is put in a 256MB module in the slot that you have access to. Only one socket is user upgradable. The second socket is only upgradable by a Dell service center. They would have to install a second 256 module to get you to the 512MB max.

I want to upgrade my memory. my current memory is 2x256mb pc2 3200. what is the max limit of memory can i have? is it per slot or total? if i get pc2-5300 is it backward compatible to pc2-3200? anyone with...

You can have a maximum of 2GB in that laptop 1x1GB in each slot, the ram speed is PC3200, PC5300 is too fast so the bios will not recognize it as the maximum is only 400MHz, stick to the PC3200 for each stick.
Ask for SODIMM DD2 SDRAM, PC3200 2x1GB, i also recommend Kingston as the ram manufacturer.
