Question about Dell Inspiron 2650 Notebook

Dell Inspiron 2650 PC

I want to upgrade to 512. So far I added 256 to the first slot. I am unable to find the second slot anywhere. I pulled the keyboard out, but there is nothing but a plate of metal covering the inside of it. I comfortable working on the laptop myself. It was purchased in 2002 so it is out of warranty. Called Dell they just want me to buy the extra memory, but I have to know how to get into the metal plate covering it.

    Getting under the pale under the keyboard question:The metal plate you describe has 5 or 6 screws. Two of those screws are under the ribbon installed top and center (approx) the ribbon has two scews holding it in place. Undo the screws on the ribbon first and gently disconnect that. You will see the two remaining screws for the plate under that. The memory is under that plate. All of the screws are at the upper part of the plate and the bottom of the plate has "tabs" that slide under at the bottom. so you'll need to slide that plate up toward the screen area after removing all of the screws. The memory comes out of that slot just like it did the back one. You'll know it when you see it. After you've done this, if you can tell me how to update the bios so the thing flies with the upgraded top and bottom memory (I went from 286 or 128 each to 256 each and it wants me to update bios)

    Are you sure there is second slot? If it's a Dell, you can got to Dell Support site and enter in your Service Tag number and view the specs of your computer.

    Trade the 256MB memory for a 512MB. Unfortunately that's as high as it will allow.

    This was an easy upgrade. The second memory stick was under the keyboard. All you have to do is take the screws out of the hinges, pop the panel that covers the power button off, unscrew the keyboard under the panel and take out the screws that hold the metal cover on. The memory is under the metal cover. Now this old computer has 512MB in it that I bought on Ebay for $4.

Adding computer memory


The only thing you could do is put in a 256MB module in the slot that you have access to. Only one socket is user upgradable. The second socket is only upgradable by a Dell service center. They would have to install a second 256 module to get you to the 512MB max.

Dell Inspiron 1100 won't read 512 Meg ram.


I had the same problem. I tried several brands of memory unsuccessfully, though they all guaranteed that their products would work with my machine. Finally, my brother (who works in IT) recommended that I go through The Upgrade Place (http://www.theupgradeplace.com/). Great price - less than half of what Dell charges - and the memory worked immediately upon installation.

When I told them that I had a Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop, they said that my PC required proprietary memory (which is true). I paid with a credit card and received the part two days later.

Good luck,

Installing Memory


Hi

Yes, you can replace/upgrate the memory module under the keyboard.

Before you proceed, note that Dell Inspiron 2650 uses DDR200 3.3V SODIMM modules. Also, memory module capacities supported are 128MB and 256MB with a Maximum memory of 512MB. If the current memory installed is 128MB, you need to order 2x 256MB modules to replace/upgrade both memory slots. If the installed capacity is 256MB, you just need another 256MB for the slot underneath the laptop.

Check "Removing the Keyboard" for guide removing the keyboard to access the 2nd memory slot.

Read "Preparing to Work Inside the Computer" before committing to the above procedure.

Let me know how you get on.
