I have Dell Optiplex GX270 with 2 X 512Mb (400MHz) DDR1 RAMS. In the mobo spec it says that this mobo supports Dual Channel DDR-1. Where should i put stcks to avail this feature? Socket1-3 or Socket1-2

if you have two partitions on your hard disk drive that means that D partition is dead! If you have two separeted hard disk drives C and D check the flat and power cables, check the jumpers on hard disks, switch the possitions of the jumpers on drive D to SLAVE position!

ALL these systems suffered from defective capacitors caused
by bad manufacturing at the component factory. I have put here a pic or two for
you to see what defective caps look like. Call Dell and ask them. I some case a
while back they were doing a free motherboard replacement. The problem causes a
whole raft of errors to occur from blue screens to "thermal event
error" and the only thing that fixes it is to have the motherboard
replaced. Hope this helps you

as you can see from the information below there are different requirements for RAM to work stable in your system . Most importand are the RAM VOLTAGE , SPEED , and Configuration of chips. you will need to consult the manual for qualified RAM requirements. Some RAM will work but not very stable. make sure the voltage supplied by your system is enough for the RAM. If you are running DDR RAM in dual channel mode, the ram needs to be the same size also.DIMM modules for the HP computer must meet the following requirements
The number of pins on the DIMM must match the socket type.
DDR memory requires a 184-pin slot and 1.8 operating voltage.
DDR2 memory is not compatible with DDR1 memory and requires a 240-pin slot and 2.5 operating voltage.
Synchronous dynamic random access memory (SDRAM): Only use DDR type SDRAM memory if the computer came with DDR-SDRAM.
SO-DIMM modules for the HP computer must meet the following requirements
The number of pins on the DIMM must match the socket type.
SO-DIMM memory requires a 200-pin slot.
DDR2 SO-DIMMs are not compatible with DDR1 DIMM and DDR2 DIMM memory modules.
With a computer running at a system bus of 533 MHz or 667 MHz, use a PC2-4200 (DDR2 DIMM 533) type.
The following requirements must be met for the DDR memory to function in dual channel mode:
Same density (256MB, 512MB, etc.)
Same DRAM chip technology (x8 or x16)
All either single-sided or dual-sided
Matched in both Channel A and Channel B memory channels
Of course it would be a great improvement, but unfortunatelly you can't install DDR2 in DDR slots, they are different and even if you could make it fit they have a big difference in architecture.
i'm sorry, it wont work.
OptiPlex GX270 can be small form-factor, small desktop or small mini-tower. The DIMM slots and therefore maximum memroy capacity depends on the form factor. Double check our OptiPlex GX270 and find memory info below.
