If you go to Crucial.com their system scanner will tell you exactly what type of memory is correct for your system.

For most Dell laptops, there is a panel on the bottom of the machine that covers the RAM.

Make sure that you have completely shut down the computer and removed all sources of power to the machine (battery and AC power) before opening the case.

checklist
- what comp = done
- what os =
- what age =
- what ram installed =
- what ram intended =

like most things it is dead easy the second time, look up the model on the maker's site but in most cases one turns the comp over and sees the screws as relating to what covers and usually but not always the the ram is a little plastic square cover, the harddrive is the bigger cover, this is sepperate from the scres of the laptops itself, either way start looking at laptops from the aspect of screws in future, it is like looking at car to see where the bonnet is, best would be to do it first time with someone who knows how to clip open the ram slots.
