I'm trying to update a mates dell latitiude notebook, (old 300mhz one) with some extra ram, I ordered a 144 pin sodimm the other day and although it fits the slot, its too tall, any ideas what I should order?
In my experiance with Dell computers (and my company have around 2000 of them) when you upgrade anything in them it needs to be replaced with 'Dell' parts or at least 'Dell compatable' parts. This does tend to be the standard for most 'badged' PC's ie Compaq, Packard Bell etc. Standard upgrades either just don't fit or if they do they then don't work. This then often means that the upgrade costs twice the amount it would on a PC you had built yourself with generic parts.
