Re: Dell Inspiron 1100 Memory speed

You need to look at the memory card(s) you have and only the same pin memory will install. Faster memory isn't as important as the maximum amount you can add, since your cpu can't run any faster, but windows can use the extra ram and avoid disk-swapping which is slow.

Dell inspiron 1501 will not start up after adding memory

If it worked prior to adding the new memory check the following. 1. how much memory does the laptop support and how much have you put in. 2. what is the speed of the memory you purchased vs. the spec for the laptop. 3. Is the memory properly seated. 4. If there are 2 chips make certain they are compatible. 5. try one chip at a time to see if one is bad (you could have gotten a bad piece of memory!) 6. Put your original memory back in and go here
This is three steps to get the proper memory modules. Works 100% of the time! Good luck Let me know how you make out Phil

I have dell inspiron 1100 laptop, when i turn it on fan goes on for about 15 sec,with no screen, power lights and battery lights either, i can hear sound from HDD and DVD rom, but after 25 sec everything...

Could be loose battery pack.
A bad memory chip would do this as well. Sounds like your not getting power.

Try this,

Unplug it, remove battery, wait couple minutes, press and hold the power button for 5 full long seconds, wait couple minutes more, then put battery back in securely, then plug in, turn back on.

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.

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...

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.

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 ( 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,

Dell 1100 Will not power up

I would take out the memory and put it back in, just to make sure that it's properly seated. You might want to try the same with the hard drive.

Dell Inspiron 1100 does not see new memory

Install one memory first to any of the memory slots and boot your laptop... then do the same on the other slot with the same memory.

Now do the same step to the other memory...

That is to see if any of the two memory has a problem or to see which memory slot has a problem... You should find a problem in there... that would be memory or the memory slot.
