RE: Inspiron 3250 Small Desktop Memory Module
The specs say this system can support 16 GB (2x8 GB) of RAM.
It's best to install RAM in matched pairs, so you probably should try to buy the exact same module from Dell, rather than getting it elsewhere, with possibly different specs, even if less expensive elsewhere.
Go to the Support site and put in your Service Tag. (Don't post it here.) When it comes back with your system info, click the System Configuration link.
Now scroll down to the listing for factory installed RAM. Expand that entry and it should give you Dell's part number.
Then contact Dell Spare Parts at 1-800-357-3355 assuming you're in the USA. Have your Service Tag handy to confirm that part number is correct and available....
