Can a dell dimension 2400 have 2 GB of memory, right now I have 1 GB


Please open up your pc and make sure the RAM card is inserted correctly, if it is inserted correctly, it is probably that the Ram has gone faulty and you will need to replace it, but they are so cheap.
Hope this helps

You have not mentioned the manufacturer and the model of the PC. The general answer for this question will be :-
1. to check the maximum memory capacity of the PC
2. In some PC's you have to use 2 identical memory sticks otherwise it would not work.

If not this 2 then 1gb memory stick is bad.
Please re-post this with the manufacturer and the model of the PC so that we can assist you in a better way.

Upgraded Dell Dimension 3100 memory to 2 Gigs - Windows XP fails


Did you add the two sticks with the 512 or remove the 512 and add the two 1gb sticks? Try booting the machine with ONLY the 1gb sticks in.

Your machine supports 1gb modules but they can't be higher than 533MHz. Check that the memory you purchased was either PC3200 (400MHz) or PC4200 (533MHz) and is 1.8v. If you post the part number off of one of the modules I can look it up for you.

Increase RAM for motherboard K7S41 to 1GB.    1) Do I use 2X516MB cards? If so what type?    2) Do I use 1X1GB card? If so what type?


If you want 1GB , Especially if your motherboard supports Dual Channel Memory capability, then you will want 2 512mb sticks.

However, I seen in some instances that purchasing a 1GB stick is cheaper then purchasing 2 512mb sticks depending on where you shop.

Try looking around on Newegg (personal favorite for shopping computer gear) or other places and see the various prices.

Another thing, to determine the ram you have in your system , I reccomend a few utilities to familiarize yourself with your computer.

One of them is called Belarc Advisor, and the other is SISoft Sandra which will identify your motherboard and tell you the memory type and timings so you can write down this information to take to the store you are shopping at so you do not get the wrong kind of memory by mistake.

8gb memory stick only able to take 2mb of data


What?  Perhaps you mean your SDHC SD memory card can only store 2GB of data because your card reader and its drivers are pre-SDHC?  Usually formatting isn't an issue.  You get a "disk full" error after 2MB, copying from some file manager?  What, really?

Added a memory stick to my Dell 2400 Desktop computer and the monitor, mouse, & keyboard won't work


Hi

The supported Memory types for Dimension 2400 Series is PC2100 (266-MHz) or PC2700 (333-MHz) DDR SDRAM (non-ECC). Supported Memory capacities are 128, 256, or 512MB and a Max if 1GB (1024MB).

The first obvious question is does the new 512MB Memory module meet the above specification? Some Memory modules are able to steep down speed.

If it does, then first ensure the new memory module is properly installed. Take ESD (ElectroStatic Discharge) precautions or you may damage the new memory module and/or the system board.

To proceed compare the system beeps and diagnostics lights color and sequence to the Advanced Troubleshooting guide.

It is possible that the new memory is DOA (Dead On Arrival). Or there is a new fault on the system. If you have access to another compatible system, you may test the new and old memory modules. You may also swap the new and old memory modules to determine if the memory slot is at fault.

Lastly, if you remove the new memory module, does the system complete POST (Power On Self Test)?. If it does you may indeed have a DOA or incompatible part.
