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 upreage the RAM to 2Gb by inserting a 2nd 1Gb memory module then the 2nd RAM maybe faulty or incompatible.
If you insert a 2gb memory module to replace the 1Gb memory module then it maybe faulty or incompatible.
Try using the same make and RAM speed as the original RAM module.

Just installed 2 2GB cards (Corsair VS2GB800D2) to replace the 1 1GB card in my emachines EL1200 series. Computer will not boot. replaced the old card and it booted right up.


Will it boot with only ONE of the 2GB memory-sticks installed?
Will it boot with ONE of the 2GB memory-sticks AND one of the 1GB memory-sticks?

Look closely at the 1GB memory-sticks.
Does the label show 'DDR266' or 'DDR333' or 'DDR400' or 'PC2100' or 'PC2700' or 'PC3200' ?
Do the 2GB memory-sticks have _identical_ information?
It's definitely _not_ acceptable to have "slower" RAM (smaller numbers) in the new RAM,
but it _might_ be acceptable to have "faster" RAM (larger numbers).

Memory up-grade


you can go max 2GB (1GB each) DDR333 PC2700.
you have to reset the bus rate to match the RAM speed.

if you stay with DDR266 then you don't have to reset the bus rate

Yes i bought a memory card 2MB for my LG CU500v & when I insert the card into my micro sd slot on the back of my phone & turn it back on it says that the card is not ready. what am i doing wrong?


simply turn off the phone before inserting it then turn it back on again.
But let me inform you that your phone memory supports up to just 1GB(hope you are not mistaking 2GB for 2MB: there is no 2MB memory in the system)
just purchase a micro SD card of up to just 1GB (nothing more)
and also make sure it is working before you leave the shop.
good luck.

Compaq presario c714nr upgrade memory too 2gb laptop


http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01301275.pdf

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.
