    I bought two sticks of PC2100 512mb Samsung RAM and when I install them the laptop won't boot. It begins to power up and gets stuck. Doesn't get to a boot screen or anything, just stops right after it powers up.

    thoughts?

    from dells site:
    You must get 400MHz SoDIMMs (PC-3200), and since it's Dual-Channel, you must install them in matching pairs.
