Just added a 512Mb DDR2 400 stick to a new dell Inspiron 6000 and the
native 256Mb won't work with it?
Surely you don't have to have matched pairs on modern Dell machines??
I have a 256 and 128Mb in my Thinkpad T23 OK...???
Any advice appreciated

pairs, but you've significantly slowed down the memory bandwidth of your
This machine uses DDR2, not DDR, so it can write to two memory sticks at the
same time, but ONLY if they are matched.
