Hello All :hello: 

Do you have to match up the [SODIMM, SO-DIMM, Small Outline DIMM, or SDRAM] NON-ECC UNBUFFERED part?

I don't understand what is going on, I matched up everything else correctly :sarcastic: 
200 pins, DDR2, memory size appropriate to specifications, ~MHz

I just got more RAM for an upgrade, but it does not fit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!? :pt1cable: 

Please help :D

Yes, the dimm/sodimm part must match also. Sodimm is a different form factor than desktop ram, and as you can tell, won't fit in a desktop system.

Hi Abeld, an addict
Its nice to meet you.

I am trying to find the correct RAM.
You know how there is a slot in the card itself on the pin side?

The RAM that I need:
The slot is 1 1/8" from the closest end

RAM that won't fit has a slot that is 5/8" from the end

Do you know what the difference is between these two types of RAM?
What they are called, and how you can tell the difference?

tell me your motherboard make and model and I'll point you to the correct ram to get.

Also, what country are you in?

abekl,
Thank you very much.

Yes, that's what I thought too. But I got new RAM for it and it won't fit.
1GB PC2-5300 memory ram laptop sodimm DDR2 667MHz upgrade 200 pin notebook
This RAM is the wrong RAM and won't fit: 5/8"

You know how there is a slot in the card itself on the pin side? I measured the distance to the slot.

Current RAM:
The slot is 1 1/8" from the closest end
This is the RAM that I am currently using.

Wrong RAM: The slot is 5/8" from the end
This is the new ram that I got

I don't understand what is going on...

Okay, I figured it out.
I opened up the computer, took out the RAM and wrote down ALL of the numbers. I even wrote down the numbers on the board itself underneath the RAM sticks.
When you go to the Bios, it does not say the motherboard number.
In system information, it says that my computer is a "D600".

But I just used a software program to test the hardware.
The software puts my computer at a C600 instead.
And this makes more sense, since the computer manual for the C600 coincides with the numbers and writing on the RAM sticks, and explains why the D600 DDR2 RAM upgrade does not fit!!!!!!!

I looked on the RAM stick so I know that it is SDRAM and 144 pin, but that is all that I really know.

QUESTION 1
What type of RAM do I use for the Dell Latitude c600? Is it DDR 3? And I want 100 MHz?

QUESTION 2
If I was going to look for new RAM to get, what are the KEY things that I want to look for to make sure that it is matched up correctly?

Example: [So-Dimm, DD2, #MHz] = key vital things to match for getting "correct" RAM
