Everest v1.51 will not only tell you what memory that is in your computer it will also give you the part number of that memory module. It will do it for each memory slot on your computer.
Once you have installed and ran Everest v1.51 go to Motherboard and then to SPD.

*NOTE* There are several versions of Everest. While the most current is 2.02 or 2.2, version 1.51 has the most features.

Go to www.crucial.com and have it scan your computer. It will tell you exactly what type of RAM you need.

What proccessor speed does your computer have? Do you know if it is a PC100, PC133, or the actual bus speed of the computer? If it is a PC100 and some PC133 you may be limited to 256Mb of RAM per memory slot. Since most older Dells (P-II and P-III) came with only 3 memory slots you may be restricted to 768mb of RAM max. What model Dell is it?

From what I can tell with my online research you have 400-MHz DDR SDRAM. Your computer can handle 2 gb, 2-1gb modules. Here is the Dell Dimension 3000 Specification for your computer. It may come in handy.
