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.
there is button at the rear top and rear buttom of the machine. press the button and swing open one side of the machine.
to get to the memories, you have to be very careful about the wiring, it is tight and not much space for you work in. do not lay the machine on its side,
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
