Memory chips for Dell Dimension 2400

I just called Dell and they sold me 2 - 1 GB chips for my Dell Dimension 2400. The sales person assured me it would work. Everything I'm reading says it will not take 2, but only 1 GB and if it does take 2 chips, it will only take it up to 1.5 GB. Do you know anything about this?

Per the crucial memoryadvisor (It has never failed me yet) Yes the system will support 2 1 GB RAM modules.

That being said, it is advised that you flash the bios to the most current BIOS version to ensure that capability.

How much ram memory can i put into a dell dimension 3000?


On a Dell Dimension 3000, there are 2 memory slots.
The maximum RAM memory capacity is 2 GB or 2048 MB.
For prices and availability of parts and upgrades for this system, call 1-800-357-3355, which is the sales dept of Dell.

New ram memory on dell dimension celeron trying to


You should check with the folks at Dell since whoever wrote their technical manuals for this machine can't do basic math. There are 2 memory slots and each can handle a maximum capacity of 512MB, yet they claim the maximum capacity for the machine is 2GB instead of 1GB. Using 512MB modules would probably work.

yeah thats a normal issue with the dimension 2400 as the older bios only supports a max of 1gb of memory you will need to go to the dell website which ive linked below and get the bios update which will give you support up to 2gb-pc3200 ddr memory
