memory upgrade

by moron / May 29, 2004 11:08 PM PDT

I want to upgrade from 256 PC2100 DDR SDRAM SODIMMS to 512. The laptop INSPIRON 1100 has 2 slots which have a 128 in each. Do I need 1- 512 or 2- 256 memory boards. I am not computer smart but a friend said one memory card works faster than two cards.Thanks

Do check http://www.crucial.com and see what is offered.

Laptops are TREACHEROUS about getting the right memory. And generic sticks rarely work.

Best of luck,
