Thanks for your post.
I have looked in to this model for you and the maximum memory it can actually support is 2GB which is 2x1GB modules. This means your system has the maximum memory already and you won't be able to add extra memory to the system.
All our products do come with a 45 day money back period and we would be more than happy to arrange a return for you. To arrange this please visit the returns section of our website at the following link: https://uk.crucial.com/gbr/en/returns
Once completed we will send you an email with a free post address to send the memory back to us for a full refund. If you would prefer to set this up over the phone then we do have a free phone UK customer support number on 0800 013 0330 or if you're calling from a mobile you can call on a reduced rate on 01355 586 100.
I'm sorry for any confusion this may have cause and if you do have any other questions at all, please let me know.
Sorry, I can't even find a proper manual for your system! Their site has links to get manual's, but when you go to that section it's blank and there is no download links
Takes you here to download, but following link after this is blank (So is the FAQ link!)
Then here, nothing!
Generic manual here, but that's no help of course
You may need to contact them directly and see if they will email you a PDF or link you to some info. I looked in google for a long time, and youtube too, no info on how to tear down or disassemble this system!
If you get it partially apart, and need further help, you can post some images and I can try to help if you want.
I am very sorry for the issues that you have experienced with your RAM modules. It does sound like a defective memory module that is causing your issues, especially since it worked fine for six months. Please contact us directly using the information in my signature and we would be happy to set up a warranty replacement.
I just installed a new Crucial 512gb SSD that is working great after driver updates on my Dell XPS 435T/9000.
It increased my overall Windows Experience number from 5.9 to 7.4. The drive transfer rating actually went from 5.9 to 7.7, but the other components are keeping it down to 7.4. Hence my next question.
I am wondering if upgrading my current 9gb of RAM will help overall performance of the machine? I do some video and photo editing. Not too many games. I currently have 3 banks of Samsung 1gb PC3 8500U memory and 3 banks of Samsung 2gb PC3-8500U memory. 240 pin, I assume. I believe I can go up to 24 gb of memory on the board. Do I need to replace all the slower memory with newer types, or/and will mixing and matching just make the machine run at the slowest Ram speed? I'm thinking 16gb should be enough, but I'm not the expert. Do I have to buy the memory in some sort of pairs? Since I have 3 banks at 1gb and 3 at 2gb, I'm thinking pairing might not be required.
In any event, I could replace all the memory if it will mean a big difference and just sell the used RAM on Ebay or something. If I could get away with just buying 8 or 12gb in the 1gb slots I'd do that.
You're expert help would be appreciated. I am just so astounded by the SSD I just have to have more!
Update: Almost forgot to post reference info you guys requested in you FAQ's.
