I was curious whether anyone had any success in adding more than 2 gb of ram to a Dell Inspiron 6000 notebook while running Windows XP. I tried adding 2x2 gb sticks thinking that I could get between 3 and 3.5 gb of ram recognized for actual use. However, the computer will not boot even to bios with both 2 gb sticks installed. I know Dell said that the laptop has a 2 gb maximum for ram, but I wondered if anyone had an update or solution that would allow me to boot with more ram than I am currently using.
There is no way to work around a limit engineered into the system board. This is a system that's now at least three years old - if not older -- and at the time it was being designed, even 1G modules were new and rare.
