Was given a Dell Inspiron 600m Laptop. It came with only 512MB of memory so I'm wanting to install 2 GB. I have managed to install 1 GB in one slot but if I add the other 1GB card into the empty slot, the laptop will attempt to start then shut down. What gives?? I do know that the Laptop is supposed to handle 2GB of memory!


"Dell Inspiron 600m"
CPU speed: 140 GHZ
System Memory: 1024 MB @ 266 MHZ

don't know if that helps or not!

Talked to Dell Tech and the S.O.B. tried to sell me one of "their" memory sticks. :non: Isn't that some crap? He said that the Kingstone(s) 1GB isn't compatible with the laptop...The kicker is that it came with 512mb Kingstone!!
