Just had a look at the specs. The Dell 5100 supports 400/533Mhz. You don't seem to have any Michael.

I do have a 4gb ram stick, DDR3 '1 x 4gb DDR3 1066mhz (Samsung) £10 inc UK post.'

Could you run the scanner below to see if your system will take 4gb.

If so, I can post to USA free of charge.

Click on my profile for my email addy, with your postal address and more info if needed
