Question about Dell Inspiron 1000 Notebook
Similar situation, only I ordered my RAM from CRUCIAL. There is actually 256MB of ram sodered to the motherboard that is the primary ram and doubles as the shared video ram. There is only one slot available for upgrade.
But RAM is generally reconized by the BIOS. Typically when you snap a new ram chip into place, the computer will squawk at you the first time you boot it up because something has changed. If you installed the RAM chip properly, it will instantly reboot, update it's setting, and you can tap F2 at the first screen to enter BIOS and confirm that the ram is @ 512MB.
It took a couple tries for me to get the RAM seated correctly \

You need to go into the bio and update the memory there and the Yellow ! will go away. Boot the PC, select the F8 key during post, go into the setting for Memory and accept the change and you should be good to go. Let me know //D

You compuer comes with this already installed.
You can only install another 512MB total 1G.
To get into where the chip is should be underneath that laptop secured by two screws. If you find there is no chip inthere already then all you need to do is place the other chip into the slot. The first is already in there and to get that you have to go through the removing the keyboard.
