I have installed the 1g memory upgrade on my Inspiron 1200 and I see no difference and I also see the same 256 on the general information...It re-checked and it is pretty snug with both clips holding it down. is there another way to see in the system if it is in fact installed or where is would show total new memory. Thanks

Your board may only recognize less than 1 gig per slot. You should check the specs before ordering. Use cpuid, a free download, to check on your memory.
removed it and re-installed it at the 45 degree angle and gently pushed it all the way in. now the system reads 1280 ram.
