1. Determine what memory you have, how much your laptop will take, and how much you need. Go to www.crucial.com, and it can automatically scan your computer and tell you what you have and what it will take.
2. On the bottom is an access door for the memory. Remove the screw and pop open the access door.
3. Either replace or add the new memory module into the slot(s). They go in at a 45 degree angle, then press down for the locking tabs to lock the memory into place. To remove the memory, you just pull out on the locking tabs and the memory will raise up slightly allowing you to remove it.
4. Replace the access door and screw.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate this as fixya.

    Can't upgrade memory


    According to the user manual for your laptop, it can only support pc-100 memory. If your going to upgrade your memory just make sure you use pc-100 and also the max amount of memory is 256mb in each slot so you would be maxed out at 512MB.

    You can verify the info from this link from Dell:
