Hello,

In my Dell Inspiron laptop I currently have 1 module of 1GB Dell factory RAM. I wanted to upgrade and put in another 1GB module. I figured it would be best to just purchase RAM from Dell directly, but then I noticed that I could get RAM cheaper elsewhere. Is there any way to find out exactly what RAM I should get, besides the specs that are listed on Dells website (200 pin SODIMM PC2-4200 533MHz). Also, since I already have a factory Dell module, is it ok to get another brand (Corsair/Kingston)?

You should be fine purchasing another brand, just make sure it is the same type. In this case, that would be PC2-4200.

You can also go here:

and the site will scan your system and tell you exactly what type of RAM you have installed.
