Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook
Your Inspiron 6400 can use a maximum of 2 GB. If you turn the notebook upside down, you should see a "door" held shut by two screws. The door has what looks like three rows of ridges or slots on it. Loosen the screws and remove the cover. Determine if one 1-GB or two 512-MB modules are there (just note how many). If there is one, you need to get one more and add it. If there are two, you will have to buy two 1-GB modules, and replace both old ones with them. Now, you need to see if you'll be comfortable doing it yourself. Ground yourself (if you do the work near a kitchen sink, touch the faucet). You will see two metal clips on the sides of a memory module. Using your fingernails, pull them slightly away from the sides of the module. It should spring up slightly. Note the angle it's sitting at. Grab the sides ONLY of the module and pull it away from the socket. Easy, huh? Now, put it back. Slide it into the socket at the same angle. Push down gently on the long edge opposite from the socket. The side clips should click into place (into the notches).
If you're okay doing this, go to www.crucial.com. On the right side of the page, use the top drop-down box to select Dell. Use the second box to select Inspiron Laptop. Use the bottom box to select 6400. Click on Go (or whatever the search button label says). You will see what you need to order, based on the quantities mentioned above.
When you're finished with a module replacement job, replace the module door.
