512 Mb memory upgrade

Hi, I installed another 512 of ram and sometimes the computer will not boot. The power turns on and I get a black screen, Also if it does boot, it does not recognize the additional 512. The new stick is correct. If I put the new stick in the first slot alone the computer will boot. If I put both in, even if it boots, only shows the 512.  Trying to get to the magic gig. Help please!!! Thanks

What type of RAM is your Pc using? SDR, DDR1 or DDR2? 1 GB single module of RAM maight be heavier for your notepad and the Laptop maight even fail to boot. Just use the 2 Modules of Ram (2 chips each 512MB) and check in BIOS if the RAM capacity has acually changed.

How can I upgrade/improve the capabilities of my Inspiron 1200

The best and quickest improvement is to add more RAM. Add another 512 Mb of RAM. If you already have a 512 Mb of RAM module then add another 512 Mb RAM module. If your laptop has 2X256 Mb RAM modules then you need to remove these and insert 2X512 Mb RAM modules.
The reason why you have 504 Mb RAM is that the video card has grabbed 8Mb of RAM off the main memory.

Ram upgradation

The system uses shared video memory, so it will always show less memory than actually installed.
It's a good machine, but needs all memory it can get for Vista.
Good luck
