Memory:

DDR PC2700

Memory Type: DDR PC2700, DDR (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 1GB

If there is only one socket under the cover you removed, you are looking at the Mini PCI Card slot not the memory upgrade slots. You will see two memory sockets if you are looking in the correct location.

How much memory your Windows OS will recognize depends on which version of Windows you are running. 32-bit versions of Windows will see (and utilize) only 3GB or 3.5GB. To utilize more memory, install a 64-bit version of your OS. More information about OS memory maximums can be found here.

Memory or DRAM is the "working" memory of the computer. It's used to store data for programs (sequences of instructions) on a temporary basis.

The Dell 8200 is used for various Excel spreadsheets and internet access via wireless network. Decided to save money and upgrade rather than purchase a new machine. I replaced the original two 128 cards with two 512's. No problem with the installation. The machine recognized the new memory on first start-up. Obviously, I no longer have the long waits on start-up or when I open a large spreadsheet. A very good investment, considering how I use the laptop.

Doubled my Ram

I was hoping to up my speed, but there was very little difference if any.

            This 512 MB memory card was easy to install. The laptop in which it was installed recognized the increased memory as soon as it was booted up after the installation - nothing more to do. The speed of my laptop doubled or more.
