I have tried several ram modules and none of them work , I match the PC2700
number the CL2 number .
Does Dell use proprietary memory ? BTW I used 256 and 512 modules.

More about : dell dimension 2400

AFAIK, Dell 2400's used generic vanilla memory, but good quality. If the memory
is ECC or some sort of server memory, it likely will not work. I've had no
trouble installing good quality generic DDR memory to upgrade the usual 128MB as
equipped at the factory.

Try Crucial brand, for one. There are other good quality manufacturers of DDR
out there too... Ben Myers

way of memory, their warranty is unbeatable, prices good. On their
sight, look for the memory required for your specific motherboard.
Then write down all the tint details and buy the memory wherever YOU
want!!! I heartily recommend Crucial Memory.

I use generic memory in my 2400. I am almost positive it is CL2.5 though.

I'm sure crucial.com or kingston.com are fine to buy from. I can say
I just got pc2700 ram from zipzoomfly.com for my dim2400 and it worked
fine.

CL-2 is too aggressive for the Dell system. You need CL-2.5 for PC2700, or
CL-3 for PC3200.

OK, Edward. For those of us whose last exposure to the
intricacies of computer RAM chips dates back to the 286/386 era,
and who have been happy, since those days, to put our trust on
RAM matters in computer vendors and crucial.com, could you do us
a favor? WITH is CL-nn? Why the apparent "golf style" rating,
where lower is "better"? Unless, of course, it is too
"aggressive". Which raise the question, how does a computer
memory chip exhibit aggression? And if you could put your
response at the "Computer Memory for Dinosaurs" level, it would
be appreciated.

The whole article is pretty good----I placed you in the middle where it
discusses CAS Latency...

Thanks, Thomas. Saved the link for perusal later. At first
glance, that place might be understandable enough to save a lot
of head shaking over a lot of "new stuff". Never be fully up
again, but at least I may get back where I know enough to know
what I don't know.

Well for me, what I don't know I don't know is always amazing me when parts
of it shift into what I don't know.
