    Well this is what u can do.

    Dell Vostro 400 RAM upgrade and 2x 1GB 311-6407 PC2-6400 240-PIN DDR2 800MHz :

    Dell Vostro 400 MAX RAM: 4GB
    This Vostro has memory slots/sockets: 4
    Upgrade Size: 2GB
    Memory Kit: 2x 1GB
    Module PIN count: 240-PIN

  4. Are the slots for the memory easy to recognize. I have installed memory in a computer before but a long time ago. Thanks, Ken
