Dell XPS 400 PC Desktop
Installing RAM on a desktop computer is of moderate difficulty for most non-technical people. Before beginning any memory upgrade, make sure the proper RAM has been purchased. The Dell XPS 400 requires DDR2 RAM (240-pin DIMM).

Preparing the Computer b> The computer must be unplugged before any work can be completed and the proper precautions must be taken, such as wearing an anti-static wristband. Also, replacing the RAM on a Dell machine could void its warranty. To install the new RAM, the case of the computer needs to be opened. Replacing the RAM b> The motherboard has four RAM slots. Each slot takes one stick of RAM (up to 1 GB per stick). The XPS 400 can utilize up to 4 GB of RAM. If adding RAM, put the new RAM in an empty slot. If replacing the RAM, take out the existing one and then put the new RAM into the machine. Important Notes b> While the Dell XPS 400 has four RAM slots, if only two sticks of RAM are to be used, they must be inserted into slots 1 and 3 or slots 2 and 4 for optimal performance. A single stick of RAM should be inserted into slot 1. Always put the largest ram module closest the CPU central processing unit.
Start your computer Wait for Windows to load. Click on "My Computer" and select "Properties" using right-click in the Explorer window. This will open "Systems Properties." Click on the "General" tab. Here you can view the physical memory installed on your computer. The amount indicated is the total RAM installed on your computer. RAM is usually 32 MB, 64 MB or 128 MB in older PC versions. Newer PCs are usually equipped with 256 MB, 512 MB or even higher RAM.
b>If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules. First you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system. You should always ask for a guarantee on the compatibility before making any purchase and try to buy for working pairs if possible.

My computer have only 190 MB RAm. it's work very slowly. What I can do to upgrade ? And my DVD drive can't read any disk.


In reality you have a stick of 256 MB DDR memory. You are seeing just 190 because the rest is reserved to the video chip.
To upgrade it is dead easy: just buy another DDR memory stick (preferably a 1 GB one) and insert it next to the one you have now.
If your dvd can't read any disks then it has died , replace it, it's a cheap part.

Help my pc is not detecting the correct amount of ram installed


Okay, first things first. IF the memory you installed is 1024 and you are using the on board video and it is 512 MB, you will only have 512 MB usable memory. This is because the on board video uses the installed memory to function. What ever the video memory is, subtract that form the total memory. If this is not the case, try re-seating the memory. If the numbers still do not add up then if there are four memory slots, make sure the memory is installed in the same color slots. Most desktops with 4 memory slots have two slots one color and the other two another color. Make sure both memory sticks are installed in the same color.

My desktop is working very slow


you speed up your existing system by upgrading the memory to 1GB.
If you want a much faster machine then you will need to replace the motherboard, memory, PSU (power suppy) hard drive and processor.
If you change the motherboard etc you will notice the difference in speed

Need to replace memory in HP Pavilion a200y


Before starting this answer is so long that I have provided it in 4 different sections. The sections below are as follows: Required RAM Information, How to Install RAM, Verifying Installation of RAM, Link to newegg.com to purchase RAM.

Required RAM Information
This computer uses a standard memory size of 256 MB, which can be upgraded to 1 GB. The memory type is PC2100 DDR SDRAM DIMM. There are two sockets which are provided for inserting memory in this computer. In a moment I will provide you with a link to a good website called Newegg.com which sells computer memory and other computer products for low prices. But first let me explain how to go about installing the memory. First I would recommend upgrading to 1 GB if it is within your budget, as your computer will run alot faster. When purchasing the memory make sure that you get 2 512 MB sticks (modules) if you want to have 1 GB. Get 2 256 MB sticks (modules) if you want to have 512 MB, or get 2 128 MB sticks if you want to have 256 MB sticks (modules). The reason for this is because there are two sockets on your motherboard inside the computer for inserting RAM, and the two sockets work together, so they both need to have an equal amount of memory (RAM) in both sockets.

How To Install RAM
First power off and uplug the computer, thenopen up the computer, and make sure that you have it on a hard no carpeted surface when opening it up. (Carpet helps produce static electricity in your body and static electricity is BAD for computers). Since the computer is powered off and uplugged it will not hurt you to touch the outside metal casing of the power supply (just never take a power supply apart!). When you touch the power supply you will discharge any static electricity you have built up before touching any circuit boards or other sensitive computer components. The memory sticks should be next to each other and should have a little tab on both sides of the stick. Push the tabs down on both sides of each stick down at the same time (one stick at a time!). This should make the sticks pop up a little bit. You can then remove them. But make sure when handling computer memory or any other components that you never touch any of the computer chips or the little gold colored connectors. Take out both memory sticks and set them aside. Take out the new stick out of the bag (these bags are antistatic bags so they are good to stick any computer components in that you are not using, like those memory sticks you just removed!). Make sure to handle those sticks carefully. When inserting the memory sticks place your index finger on either end with your thumbs on top this way you can know that you are handling the stick properly and you can apply equal pressure to both sides when inserting the sticks. Don't provide to much pressure, just enough so that the sticks go in and the tabs pop into either side. When installing make sure that the notches on the bottom of the stick line up with what you see in the socket (these notches and keys are placed there to insure you install the sticks correctly). After this you can close up the computer case, plug it in and power it on. That is the method for installing the memory.

Verifying Installation of RAM
To make sure that the amount of memory you installed is what the computer reports, right click on my computer > click on properties > click on General Tab (if not already selected) This should show the amount of memory installed. If it is a little less than you installed this is because your video component uses a little bit of this memory and it is not reported.

Link to newegg.com to Purchase RAM
The link to Newegg.com where you can find your required memory is:

I hope that this has helped you and please let me know if you have any more questions.

Ejecting Memory Stick Pro Duo card out of notebook card reader


Hi, the memory Stick Pro Duo card is (micro), half size as you have noticed you need to buy an SD adapter card. You put your Pro Duo card into the SD card & than put it into your card reader.
Once you see the SD adapter card on the web site you'll understand. You can buy this at a local BestBuy. Most web sites sell the adapter as a combo, you'll get a micro card & adapter.
Click the link below.

Look at SanDisk 2GB Ultra II Memory Stick PRO Duo w/Adapter
& you will understand.

Does not read my Memory stick any more


Hello Cbaltzer,

Try to use in another PC, your memory stick, and see if work, if so, perhaps it is a problem with your other PC, or the USB port, see if is 2.0 or 1.0 USB compatible.
good luck
