Try your memory stick to any other computer check if memory stick still working. if yes then update the BIOS of your computer by downloading the latest BIOS from the dell support site. If memory reader still not working after updating BIOS then have that part replace or if it is integrated with motherboard have your motherboard replaced.

I suggest going into the control panel/device manager and removing all the usb devices.
Restart the computer and let it find the devices again. That might help.
Also--have you tried the stick in another computer just to make sure it works?

Once you installed the memory, did you enter into the System BIOS Setup screen? Do this and verify that the system recognizes the newly installed 2GB RAM. This should let the system access the new memory once you boot.

Computer won't accept a compatible replacement battery for Dell Inspiron 6400


This could be due to a defective battery even though it is new. These batteries are what are called smart batteries. They have circuit boards mounted inside the battery pack that aids the computer in recognizing the battery as well as sending functional information to sensors in the laptop about battery health and performance. Try re-installing the old battery and see if it recognizes the old battery. if it does, the contact the company you purchased the battery from and let them know the problem. If the computer does not recognize the old battery anymore, there may be a problem with the charging circuit on the motherboard or the power adapter on the motherboard.

Usb device not recognize


You mentioned that you uninstalled the unknown device from the Device manager. If you uninstall it then connected your usb flash drive you will see an error again on your device manager. This means that the driver for your usb port is not properly installed.

To install it, visit dell website, look for the model of your machine and locate the driver, download it then install from your machine.

Dell e1505 SD card reader issue


You installed the driver for your card reader for the laptop. If its not recognizing any cards you put in there then that means the reader is bad and since that is integrated onto the motherboard, replacing the motherboard would be the only option in order to fix that problem.

The Sony Memorystick Pro is smaller than the standard SD card slot on your system.
