Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook ?

Dell memory issues

\015 Hi I just purcased 2 x 1GB PC2 6400 DDR memory modules from Dell Direct that won't work in the Dell Inspiron 6000. Dell support says it should, are there known issues with this? If so what could be recommended to fix this as I have 512Mb PC4200 ram in the machine and wanted to upgrade the ram to 2GB. I have flashed the BIOS and still have no luck.\015

Answers :

If the ram chips are not compatible you need to get ones that are.
your unit supports this type

Memory type 1.8-V SODIMM DDR-2
Minimum memory 256 MB
Maximum memory 2 GB

you can still put 2 gigs in it but it has to be the above type
here is a link to a manual
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins6000/en/om/D5181bk5.pdf

and are you surprised that they say it will work. Thats why you have techs here, because the manufacturers hire people that don;t know from adam. same thing with apple. the techs you call are usless. Return your ram chips to dell and have them send you the ones that work.
