Your Inspiron 6400 can use a maximum of 2 GB. If you turn the notebook upside down, you should see a "door" held shut by two screws. The door has what looks like three rows of ridges or slots on it. Loosen the screws and remove the cover. Determine if one 1-GB or two 512-MB modules are there (just note how many). If there is one, you need to get one more and add it. If there are two, you will have to buy two 1-GB modules, and replace both old ones with them. Now, you need to see if you'll be comfortable doing it yourself. Ground yourself (if you do the work near a kitchen sink, touch the faucet). You will see two metal clips on the sides of a memory module. Using your fingernails, pull them slightly away from the sides of the module. It should spring up slightly. Note the angle it's sitting at. Grab the sides ONLY of the module and pull it away from the socket. Easy, huh? Now, put it back. Slide it into the socket at the same angle. Push down gently on the long edge opposite from the socket. The side clips should click into place (into the notches).

If you're okay doing this, go to www.crucial.com. On the right side of the page, use the top drop-down box to select Dell. Use the second box to select Inspiron Laptop. Use the bottom box to select 6400. Click on Go (or whatever the search button label says). You will see what you need to order, based on the quantities mentioned above.

When you're finished with a module replacement job, replace the module door.

if you only have slots, then you must remove the orginal 1GB and replace it with a 2GB. in other words, 2GB in each slot to get the 4 GB total.

Can I upgrade memory to only one gb of memory or install 2 512 mb on a toshiba satellite m35x series


http://www.shopping.com/xPF-Toshiba-Toshiba-Satellite-Notebook-PC-M35X-S114

Looking at the specs, the max is 2gb for your Toshiba. According to this website, its only a 256mb ddr sdram. So my guess is you only have 1 slot for the ram. I'd go with a 2gb ram if you can afford it, 1gb just don't cut it in todays technology.

I believe its the PC2700 model, so find a 1gb or 2gb PC2700 @ 333mhz and you should be set.

Page 43 of this manual seems to have the best documentation on memory for this machine. I saw a 2GB max in another document and this shows the biggest module as 1GB. I would believe that infers a pair.
