How can I ad an additional stick of RAM (2 GB) on my TC4400 tablet? Where the additional slot is? I didn't find it. Thank you, Benjamin


There should be a cover behind the laptop, unscrew these tiny screws and the back cover should open. Then you want to located where the rams are at. In some case the ram slot is already being used by the original rams and you need to take these out to install the new ram. Before hand, make sure your laptop support the correct type of the ram, in your case it will support ddr2 sdram up to 4gb. So pretty much once you locate the ram slot after opening the back panel... then just install it.

I want to increase ram, what do I get


First, you have to find out the max of ram that you can add to your pc. Then go to the website crucial.com and run a test where it will tell you what memory and how much you can add. If you decide to purchase the memory and after you recieved , open the case and locate the empty slop where the memory is going to be install. It should be the small slots not the white big ones. Then carefully open the case from the memory and then put i on the slot of the pc. Turn the pc on and then see if it recognize it

Can I install one (1-gig) memory stick instead of 2 match pairs (only have one) this is to replace two 256 sticks?will it preform at 1 - gig memory


Yes.

The Maximum Total Amount of Ram Memory is 2GB.
(2048MB)
The Maximum Amount for EACH ram slot is 1GB.
(1024MB)

Ram should be installed in Slot 1, when using just one stick of ram.
This is the ram slot closest to the Processor.

The Processor reads ram memory that is installed in Slot 1, first.

This is Dell Support, and the main support page for the Dimension 3000 desktop computer,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim3000/en/SM/index.htm

In the list left-click on - Technical Overview

Now click on - System Board Components

Number 1 is Slot 1.

Note*
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate computer hardware components inside a computer.

Work on a table.
After you have opened the computer case, and BEFORE you remove that ram module from it's anti-static protective bag, TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case. (Power unplugged from computer)

This will relieve your body of static.
Ignore the above if you are already aware.

If your desktop is a Dell Dimension 2400 then this is the technical specs for the RAM.
Memory
Architecture
DDR SDRAM
Memory connectors
two
Memory capacities
128-, 256-, or 512-MB
Minimum memory
128 MB shared DDR SDRAM
NOTE: Between 32 and 64 MB of system memory may be allocated to support graphics, depending on system memory size and other factors.
Maximum memory
2 GB
Memory type
PC2100 (266-MHz) or PC2700 (333-MHz) DDR SDRAM (non-ECC)

The RAM modules are held in place with clips on the ends of the RAM modules. Push each clip down and away from the RAM modules and the RAM module will lift up.
To install the RAM modules, the RAM modules have a notch and can only be installed one way. Place the RAM module in the memory slot and push down until the locking clips swing up. You may need to push the clips into the sides of the memory modules to lock and secure the memory modules.

The price of the RAM depends upon the size of the RAM you want to install. I suggest a minimum of 1Gb of RAM and the maximum to can install is 2Gb of RAM.

Check the prices of RAM on the Internet and in the computer stores.

Want to install 1G ram internally


ok,

Open your Laptop/Desktop and look for existing RAM slot.

In the laptop it is usually underneath, so flip the laptop over and unscrew a location where it says RAM/Memory.

Desktop, open the case and it should be failry obvious where it is on the Motherboard.

If you have nver replaced RAM i would recommend getting some professional help.. i.e. making sure you buy the correct type of RAM in the first place.

I hope this helps, don't forget to rate my solution.

Thanks.

INSTALL A 2 MB RAM FOR MEDIAN PC MODEL 8030..


Most RAM today, is plug and play, would you know the specs of your motherboard?

Installing RAM, is something you should get someone at least semi experienced with Hardware to do, if you are then open your case, and you will notice 3/4 slots, one or more of these slots will be filled with RAM already, Providing you have enough empty slots for your new RAM, you can leave the existing ram installed or remove it - your call.

There are many helpful images here

It is basically inserting the RAM, the correct way around and clip it in. In the case of Installing another hard-drive or replacing your old HD, you will have several cables, The main ones are the power, and data pathing cable. Illustration here

Be careful not to disrupt any other devices/cables inside the machine and it should be good to go.
