One easy way to find out for sure how much RAM your computer can hold is to go to WWW.CRUCIAL.COM and run their SCAN MY COMPUTER feature.

This handy utility will scan your hardware configuration and tell you exactly how much RAM memory you currently have installed and what type it is.

It will also tell you how many RAM slots are fitted on your motherboard and what the maximum memory capacity for each individual slot is, as well as the maximum total RAM that the motherboard can handle.

If your computer does have room to add more RAM, it will provide you with specific recommendations as to exactly what type and size of RAM stick to buy in order to maximize the memory capacity and performance of your computer.


Please comment back here to this page if you have any questions, have difficulty accessing the links, or just require further general assistance and I will respond as soon as I see it.

Thank you very much and good luck.

Joe.

Yes. Dell Dimension 2400's have two RAM slots. So right now you are probably running two 512 sticks or 1GB stick. If you buy two 184-pin DIMM DDR PC2700 1GB sticks and install them they will run fine.

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

SOURCE: Memory chips for Dell Dimension 2400

per the crucial memoryadvisor (It has never failed me yet) Yes the system will support 2 1 GB RAM modules.

That being said, it is advised that you flash the bios to the most current BIOS version to ensure that capability.

SOURCE: new ram memory on dell dimension celeron trying to

You should check with the folks at Dell since whoever wrote their technical manuals for this machine can't do basic math. There are 2 memory slots and each can handle a maximum capacity of 512MB, yet they claim the maximum capacity for the machine is 2GB instead of 1GB. Using 512MB modules would probably work.

Old memory + new


Depends. I think your dell 2400 will accept up to 2GB, in which case it shouldn't be an issue. Some systems like only paired memory, but yours isn't one of them. I recently upgraded a gateway with exactly your config and it works just fine. In fact, better than ever.
You'll quickly find out when you plug them in.
Also see this link to the crucial memory advisor.
And that way if you ever decide to max it out...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
