I just purchased a used Dell D410 and it has an odd ram configuration: a 512mb chip and a 256mb chip. One of these is easy to get to from the back of the laptop, they other is located under the keyboard and is harder to get to. I've purchased a 1024 chip; is it ok to pull say the 512 and add the 1024 = making a total of 1280 ?

I'd say that the module under the keyboard is easy to get to - just pop open the hinge cover, and loosen two screws. Bada bing, you're there. You don't even have to disconnect the keyboard, just flip it over and set it upside down on top of the palmrest. Clicky for instructions.

I'm 99% sure that the larger stick of memory (the 1 GB) needs to go into DIMM A (under the keyboard), and you can put the 512 MB into DIMM B (under the access hatch on the bottom of the laptop).
