    Help with dell pc and ram

    Hi my friends dell dimension 3100c pc needs more memory but when i checked on the memory site it says 1gb max per slot,has anyone fitted a 2gb stick and had any problems?


    thanks

    It is just a waste of money going beyond the max. The PC wont recognise it. My Dell only takes a max of 2gb too.

    reflash the bios to accept 2gb

    he only has 512mb in it atm lol,think its best to order 2x 1gb sticks and take the 512 out,where the cheapes ddr 5300 atm?

    if it says 1gb per slot max, why are you trying to fit 2gb per slot?:thinking:

    Unless he is doing computer intensive work he will not notice a performance improvement with anything above 2Gb anyway.

    (In fact he may not notice the difference if he had more than 1Gb to be honest)
