Hi,

Unfortunately not. There are only two memory banks on the motherboard. However the motherboard supports 2GB of ram, 2x1GB stick in each slot. The menory runs at 400Mhz.



Regards.

According to the Dell service manual for this model it should have 4 slots.

You might want to visit Dell's site and check their support information based on your computer's service tag code. This is a label with a number that uniquely identifies the configuration of your particular computer. While all the models of a given series will be similar, they aren't identical. There are built-to-order models, they make a bunch for retailers based on what the retailers ask them for, and so on. Your particular machine may in fact have only 2 memory slots by design. Perhaps Dell got a good deal on the system boards. There's a "contact us" link at the top of their page, so you can ask someone in the company why yours has just 2 slots. I'd be curious to find out.

Thanks for using Fixya!

Some motherboards have 4 slots, but they are usually high end computers for gamers and graphical applications, your computer is a mid range which means it will only have 2 memory slots for ram upgrades, if you playing games on this pc it is advisable to also upgrade the graphics card.

Blinking amber light with green 4 light


If the power light is blinking amber, the computer is receiving electrical power, but an internal power problem might exist.
Try, unplugging the power cable from the pc, and reinsert it, if this does not help try a differnt power outlet, if this dont help, open the computer, take the power Molex conector out of the mother board and try turning it on, if this dont help, take out the Memory modules and reseat them, if this dont work you may want to ring up dell support.

Hope this helps!

Ack graphics card wont fit in any input slots


the adapter u are using is pci express and the dell dimension 9100 are not compatible.. try returning it for either a pci (usually the white slot) or AGP which in most cases is brown.. the AGP will be your best performance.. if return is not an option.. then it seems that a new pc is in your best interest.

Dell Dimension 9100 - Motherboard & Compatible CPUs


Intel Pentium 4 Socket-T (LGA775) with Hyper-Threading or Dual-Core support, cache 1MB or 2Mb for 9100, or just 2Mb cache for 9150. I know of some of these machines having pentium D installed but I do not believe a Core 2 Duo is an option, whereas Dual-Core is. Good Luck!
