Dell Inspiron 600m


Recommended Posts

My wife has a Dell Inspiron 600m with only 256MB (I know - how rude of me to have never upgraded this for her!). When I went to find out what sticks you carry that I could upgrade with I found only this:



VS512SDS266 Details

Memory Type » DDR-266 (PC-2100) SODIMM


Size » 512MB


Latency » 2.5-3-3-6-2T


Format » 200-pin SODIMM


Now the from the Dell website it indicates that I can get 1GB sticks:


Tech Specs

Package Type Logical Type

200-pin SODIMM DDR 128x64

Speed Description

PC2700 / 333 MHz Standard SODIMM


And note that it is PC2700 and not the PC2100 that you guys are recommending. I want to put at least 1GB, and possibly 2GB, and you guys do have this:


VS1GSDS333 PC-2700 1GB 2.5-3-3-7 200pin SODIMM


Why would this not work?


Thank you,

At this time I cannot pull up the information about that system to be sure but most likely it will depend on the CPU you have installed. I would suggest running CPU-Z on your NB and see what the CPU FSB is running at, if its running at 133 MHz the system should support DDR333 but if its running at 400MHz then you will be limited to DDR266.

You are welcome to try it or try the modules from the other site. However, for some reason with DELL systems when we tested them they will not post with faster modules even if they slower SPD information is there. Sorry but I would suggest using the part we suggest.
