Question about Dell Inspiron 1100 Notebook

1 Answer

My Inspiron 1100 won't accept the 1GB memory upgrade and I read somewhere that you have to remove the internal memory first in order to max out the memory. Do you know how to locate/remove this internal memory?

    Thanks for the response. As it turns out this model actually doesn't have the internal memory after all. According to Dell the problem was the SODIMM which is PC2700 should be PC2100.



    Thanks!

Internal memory is located inside your laptop. u need 2 open it from behind. but it is very risky for you to open it yourself you might damage some parts on your laptop.

I have purchase a memory upgrade KByte and not sure how to install. I went to www.kbytememory.com and found nothing to help me.


This looks very much like my old M90... you pop out the battery, locate and unscrew the memory door, and then snap in the new memory. Then restart the laptop... if it beeps at your (this is called a beep code) then the BIOS doesn't recognize one or both of the sticks. Assuming all goes well it should prompt you and say something to the effect of 'amount of system memory has changed, press F1 to continue or F2 for bios'... go into BIOS and confirm its reading the new memory amount (2GB will say 2064). This model apparently only accepts 2 x 1GB sticks so hopefully you didn't order 2GB sticks... unless there's a BIOS update you can install the mobo won't recognize memory sticks greater than 1GB. Good luck.

I want to upgrade my inspiron 1100 processor


To be honest, the Inspiron 1100 is probably not worth the effort and cost to upgrade
The fast is proc is a 2.4 GHz Pentium 4 CPU, max ram 1GB of RAM,
You can find several dell portables below $500

I want to now which ram is used for dell latitude 640, latitude 520, latitude 430, latitude 420 and inspiron 2200 is it ddr2 or ddr1 and max capicity for upgrade


Here are the max memory and speeds:
Lat C640 is Max 512M per stick DDR-266 (PC2100) or DDR333 ( PC2700 ) for a total of 1024 Meg

Lat D520 is either 2 or 4 Meg total. DDR2-667 ( PC2-5300 )
Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.Maximum memory for systems with the Intel 945GM chipset is 4096MB, maximum memory with the Intel 940GML chipset is 2048MB
Lat D430 has only slot with a Max of 1 Meg. You can use DDR2-667 (PC2-5300)  or DDR2-533 (PC2-4200)

Lat D420 is a max of  1.5G    . Use 1GB DDR2-533 (PC2-4200)

Inspiron 2200 is one slot with a max of 1280 Meg. recomended is 1GB DDR-333 (PC2700)

Here is a link to find almost any memory you need:

NOTE:
When mixed speeds in the same PC, the memory will run at the slowest speed installed or the highest speed allowed by your system, whichever is slower.

Good Luck

Upgrading ram on laptop, new ram not recognized.


remove the bios battery for a few seconds...and place it back on ...this will make it see the new ram memory modules...if you are sure they are compatible ..they will work .....in fact ..the ddr1 333 512 M is more that compatible with your system and it will work after you remove the battery ...\ my recommendation is to reinstall a clean operation system after you boot up ...and format the C partition too...this have to be done after memory changes to get the max out of them ..

Adding memory to a a75-s211


How much memory did it have before you removed the 256Mb RAM?
If it had 756Mb RAM then the memory in the laptop has 512 Mb plus 256 Mb RAM modules, the 256Mb in the slot you can see and possibly 512Mb in a slot under the keyboard or soldered on the motherboard.
Therefore by removing the 256Mb and replacing with 1Gb memory module will give you a total of 1.5Gb

Can't upgrade memory past 1gb when max is 2gb


I have the same issue with my laptop. I have not been able to get the laptop to accept 2gb of memory yet, but I did find something that works. If you put your 512mb memory that works in the laptop and then add a 1gb stick in the second slot it works. Or at least it did for me. It's better than nothing. I am still trying to figure out how to get it up to the 2gb max. Will add a solution if I figure it out.

Dell Inspiron 1100 won't read 512 Meg ram.


I had the same problem. I tried several brands of memory unsuccessfully, though they all guaranteed that their products would work with my machine. Finally, my brother (who works in IT) recommended that I go through The Upgrade Place (http://www.theupgradeplace.com/). Great price - less than half of what Dell charges - and the memory worked immediately upon installation.

When I told them that I had a Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop, they said that my PC required proprietary memory (which is true). I paid with a credit card and received the part two days later.

Good luck,

Upgrading ram


Hi reisrui, yes it is odd. (It's not the first time I have seen this.)
According to you're manual on page 6, under Specifications. The manual say's you can run up to a Max speed of PC3200 400MHz, 1GB in slot one. In slot 2 you can run a Max of 1GB of PC2700 333MHz in slot 2. Every motherboard I have come across that can run two different speeds of memory. The system will reduce the Max speed to the lower MHz memory speed. If you currently are using 512MB PC3200 400MHz in slot 1 & add 1GB of PC3200 400MHz into slot 2 for a total of 1.5GB of memory. The motherboard will ruduce the total memory over all speed to PC2700 333MHz. Motherboards alway run at the lower memory speed if two different speeds are presant.
I can’t be 100% sure of the 1GB of PC3200 400MHz into slot 2, will run at all! Or if it will be reduce down to 333MHz. I am sure you can run 2GB of PC2700 333MHz, 1GB of memory per slot in you're board for a total of 2GB.

If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.
