Your Inspiron 9100 System Specs

System specs as shipped by the manufacturer.
Scan your system to view your specific system configuration.

Memory:

DDR PC3200

Memory Type: DDR PC3200, DDR (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 2GB
Slots: 2

Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.

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.

      Comments about Crucial 1GB Upgrade for a Dell Inspiron 9100 System:

      I purchased two of these modules for an older Dell Inspiron 9100 laptop PC that had only 500MB or RAM. The memory was reasonably priced, easy to order, arrived quickly, installed in less than 5 minutes, and overall was an easy and reasonable way to speed up the performance of this laptop, especially when multiple applications are open.

        This is my wife's laptop and she was not happy. I upgraded the memory and have heard no complaints, in fact I haven't heard anything. (That is a good thing)

          Used to have 1G and kept using it up causing the disk to swap and realy slow things down. Machine no longer swaps and runs fast.

            Needed this in order to run the most recent security software with my other programs. I'm definitely not a techie, but it only took about two minutes to install, can't believe Geek Squad charges $50 just for installation!
