The easiest & safest would be get the biggest.

However, if you want to go "just enough", you have to determine what part of your computer"s "memory" (I am presuming the contents of your hard drive) you would want to store.
1. The entire contents - click on My Computer, right click on Local Disk (C), click on Properties, the numbers opposite "Used space" would be a fair indicator of how much was used and therefore how much would be needed. Safer to get next bigger size; or
2. If just your "Documents and Settings", instead of right click (as above in #1), double click on the Local Disk (C), right click on "Documents and Settings", click on Properties.  The numbers opposite "Size" or "Size on disk" would again be a fair indicator oh how much you would need. Again go for the next bigger size; and
3. #2 will also hold true for any and/or all other folders you would want to store/save.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things are or should you need further information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Issues with 2gb 32ddr dell memory compatible in dell gx280

Unfortunately, the CPU on these computers may be capable of handling the 2GB memory, the motherboard isn't on either system.

The specs for the Dell GX280 are available here: . This system takes 400 or 533 MHz DDR2 non-ECC memory and the form-factor determines the maximum memory. In the mini-tower format, you have 4 DIMM slots and can have 4 GB of memory. In the small form factor, it takes 2 GB max.

The Dell E310 specs are available here: . This system can only support 2 GB (2 x 1 GB) memory.

I wish that I had better news for you.

Cindy Wells
(who had a similar Pentium 4 computer with the 1 GB limit. Since that system was running a 32-bit system and only actively addressed 3 GB, I didn't try to put 2 GB sticks in any of the 4 memory slots.)

Try to uninstall the usb drivers in deice manager. Then reboot the comp with the usb drives connected. It should recognize them.Also, try mapping to the drive.

Dell dimension e310 usb & headphones ports not working

it looks like you may have to open up your system (when its off), and look inside towers the front. it seems like this type of system has this problem alot. if im correct, then the sound and U.S.B are in the front? if not, do this in revers order.(as in look at the back of the comp. instead of the front). either there are wires leading from the ports, or there is a card. if it has wires leading from them, to another location(probably the motherboard), check these wires for any damage. Make sure that they are plugged in securely. if there is a card, make sure that it is plugged in securely. I'm afraid that is all i can say, Because i cant see the inside of your comp.
hope this helps, and good luck.

0x000000a : This error will come up if you knowingly or unknowingly have installed a new hardware device or software for it... or if a wrong update was installed ...It could also mean your Memory (RAM) needs to be reset.

Try using safe mode and do a system restore
To get into Safe mode start the computer and on the Blue-Grey Dell Logo tap-click the " F8 " key on your keyboard slowly but steadily 4-5 times and then you will get windows advanced options menu.
Select Safemode With Networking and then push ENter Key Twice and then login to administrator and click yes and the follow the steps
Click :
Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. Click
the Restore My Computer to an earlier time, next.
Select a Previous date on the calendar atleast a few weeks back and then restore it by clicking next... and then check.. if it works...
Also revert back to me... on what happened or if any doubts...

Please do rate me...

Thanks Bye...
