    Default 2 GB RAM Upgrade For Inspiron 6000?

    Hello friends,

    I currently have a Inspiron 6000 with 512 RAM, I am looking to upgrade it to 2GB RAM. I work by multi-tasking with programs such as Photoshop with many layers, Firefox with many windows, and video/music player program at the same time and other misc programs.

    As of now, the 512 RAM has been just okay, but after researching RAM upgrade would be the least expensive but most rewarding upgrade to help boost the power of my laptop.

    BUT, for those that have Inspiron 6000 or a model of similar caliber, can the Inspiron 6000 take advantage of 2GB?

    Thank you so much for all your help.

    PS: If I were to buy it, I would buy 2 sticks of 1GB Ram for the DELL Insprion 6000, Correct?

    Depending on what you have now (2x256 or 1x512), it might be easier to buy a 2gb chip and go to 2.5gb.

    This is from my memory so correct me if im wrong, I think the max supported memory in the inspiron 6000 is 2GB?

    According to Corsair the max memory for the 6000 is 2GB. (i used the memory Configurator)

    Thank you both - graememk & millermagic.

    Do you recommend one brand over the other?

    Graememk, since you have the same model and you were successful in upgrading to 2GB, did you notice a spike/drop in the overall temperature after the upgrade?

    The keywords are DDR2 / 533MHz when looking for compatible Inspiron 6000 RAM, correct?

    Thanks so much, for helping a stranger in need.

    I didnt notice a change in temperature, I was running Vista at the time and the laptop was on for at least a week most of the time between restarts,

    I just went and got the cheapest i could at the time which was Corsair Value RAM from Komplett.ie, at the time it was around 40 or 50 euro a stick, now its only 20 euro each

    you need SO-DIMM DDR2 PC4200 Sticks, PC4200 is 533MHz

    you can retract your thanks to millermagic, he gave you incorrect advice. be thankful you didn't spend your $ on a 2GB chip.

    I made a mistake. I'm sorry.

    I was not aware the inspiron 6000 was such an old laptop.

    Well you dont need to be sorry, and theres no need for name calling either...anyrate, the 6000 isnt that old laptop...heck i just bought my mom one a year ago. It is just that the chipset maxes at 2gb.
