Basic Info on a DELL Inspiron 3500. Easy to answer

I orderd a DELL Inspiron 3500 off ebay for someone, awaiting for it now, and just want to know what is great about this laptop. I plan on getting a CD/RW/DVD-ROM Drive for it. Right now it has a floppy. A 120GB Hard Drive, right now has a 5GB HDD with Windows XP Home on it. Intel Celeron. And may get 512MB RAM and right now has 64MB. What is the Max RAM limit for a DELL Inspiron 3500? He plans to just play old games on it like from 1999, music, pictures, internet and maybe DVDs other than that looks like a good laptop to me. May get a extended warranty on it. I also have a Belkin Wireless G notebook card that it can maybe use. Thanks....

If you take the screen out and flip it over, on the back you should see a part number for your particular screen " go by that " that way it insures you get the right part, and if you are still not sure, send the information in the form of a question to the seller to get an answer.

Toshiba laptops satellite 4090

Hi, The laptop you purchased is an older model. It will use most any IDE laptop hard drive. The drive you mentioned from your Dell will work in it. You will need to pull the hard drive and put the sliders or hardware off the old one on to the new one. Look here for more info on your laptop. Look under portables.

DELL Inspiron 3500 2nd RAM Slot not reading

since the second slot is not reading either RAM module, then to fix it will require replacement of the motherboard. Motherboards for that system are cheap (Less than $50) but unless you are comfortable installing it yourself, that system really is uneconomically repairable (Cost more to fix than it is worth)
