Having problems with your Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop ?

I don't know the memory capacity for my computer

\015 I want to upgrade the RAM on my desktop. My Computer is a Dell Dimension 2400 series. I know the number of RAM slots and the type of RAM my computer takes. The problem is I don't know how to find the maxium memory capacity. I don't know how to find what type of motherboard I have or even what the serial number is. I looked at my system information on dell.com but it just listed parts by a set of numbers which I couldn't decipher. I couldn't even tell which one was the motherboard. My computer was bought in assembled in late summer of 2004. The original RAM was 256MB.\015\012I could ask Dell but I don't trust them. I had someone tell me a complete and total lie in an attempt to sell me some parts. \015\012\015\012How do I find the maxium memory for my system?\015

Answers :

The Dimension 2400 will hold a total of 2GB DDR Ram (2 x 1GB Dimms)
I don't sell RAM, but I do work on a lot of Dell's where I work.

Motherboard / Service Tag: to find out the service tag, when it's not printed anywhere on the box:  Restart or power on the PC.  When the pc is going thru POST, press the F2 key a few times, so the pc will boot into the BIOS.  Depending on the age of the BIOS, the serivce tag should be displayed on the first page.  If you can find the service tag, you can look up the original configuration on the Dell website.
Hope this helps
Dell's website says 1GB MAX, via two slots at a max of 512 MB each.

\015\012Under your system information, you'll find the model number of your motherboard listed next to "System Model"
