    Default Re: HOW TO: Install RAM on your DELL notebook

    Hey.. great guide - I just had a few questions.

    1) Does the inspiron e1405 have the ram under the keyboard as well or are both at the back?

    2) If one is under the keyboard, can I just put a 1GB stick replacement for the back one only for a total of 1.5 GB? (the one i ordered is 512 MB x2)

    I plan on using corsair valueselect DDR 533 either 1 or 2 sticks depending.

    Thanks!

    1) E1405 has both in the back.

    2) You can do that, but optimal performance comes with two matching "sticks".

    Inspiron E1405 is for home use only, and provide easy access memory slot location on the buttom of the notebook computer. I think this design is much better than many Latitude for business/commerical use which has one slot on the buttom and another under the keyboard.

    I don't know why Dell has such poor design. If you do not allow consumers to change memory themselves, you can put all the memory slots under the keyboard like Thinkpad. In this case, heat dissipation efficiency will be improved.

    The E1505 Inspiron has both sodimms located on the back of the laptop. There is no need on this unit to remove the keyboard. I know because I did this upgrade for myself three days ago. I would also look at the .pdf service manual that DELL provides on its website for your individual computer for step by step instructions. The guide posted here is indeed excellent for the quality photos and great explanations for that particular model

    Yes you can do that, but you will not be running in dual channel mode as I understand it.

    Sounds good. I still cant decide if I want the e1405 or e1505 though. The main concern I have is the e1505 on an airplane, does that fit on a tray table well enough to view? I will be having a few flights per month for work.

    I like the e1505 because of the free graphics card for the occassional game when on the road. Also, its got WXGA+.

    I will definitely be using 2gb of ram though if its that easy to install.

    This guide is VERY detailed - and i think that is good. I have built several desktops from scratch (never even opened laptop tho) and i still appreciate its extreme thoroughness. Excellent work.

    Have you considered a D630? I know it seems like I'm pushing these lately

    The latitude series build quality is leaps and bounds above the inspiron...

    I really like the latest latitudes!
