I'm not real familiar with hardware type stuff, and I'm not sure where to start. Does anyone know how to do this? :tazz:

just turn the machine off, unplug it, ground yourself, open the case...take the memory out and put it right back in...there are two tabs on either end of the ram that you have to push down to get the memory out..and it's not fully seated until those tabs click back in when you push the ram back down

Well, it looks like I can't, according to what Dell said. They covered the module so that the customer can't replace it. :tazz:

If you flip the laptop upside down, you should see the memory compartment cover in one corner of the laptop. There will be a screw that keeps the cover in place. If you remove that screw & lift up the cover, you should gain access to the memory modules.

Remember to remove the laptop's battery first as well as the power cable!

The problem with the Inspiron 1000 is that they have taken the 1st slot and actually "fixed" the memory in place.

Adding the second stick can be done as stated above, flipping it over and unscrewing the latch to expose the memory banks and adding memory to the additional slot. You have to have someone who's Tech-Savy to take out the memory from the first slot.

When you do this,remember it will only show 448 megs because the video use's the additional memory.

I thought i had a bad stick until someone explained it to me.
