RAM for Dell Dimension 2400

by debsam21 / November 16, 2005 3:10 AM PST

I have some ram cards from an old computer. How would I know if they can go in my Dimension 2400? Does it have certain numbers that I must see? Thank you.

Any 184 pin dimm should work
by Olds / November 16, 2005 3:36 AM PST

IF you have one of the memory slots open ( there are only 2 total) you should be able to use any 184 pin dimm.

If you can, try and use one that is PC2700 (333 Mhz). You can use any 184 pin modules that are slower, but you won't get the best performance out of them.

understand that if the one you add is slower, it will slow all of the others down to the lower speed.

What happens if you add memory that is *faster*, eg. DDR3200, 400MhZ? Will this work?

This website will tell you the best ram.

Go to www.Crucial.com and go to the memory advisor. You dont have to buy this ram, just write down the type of ram and spec then search bizrate.com or something.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
