Hi I have a Dell Inspiron 510m Laptop with 2 x 256mb chips installed.
There are no free slots so i will need to remove one of the chips to
upgrade.


I have found the memory upgrade for this machine on the Crucial memory
website.


their recommemded upgrade is


1 GB DDR PC2700 CL=2.5 UNBUFFERED NON-ECC DDR333
2.5V 128Meg x 64 for 104.56


So i searched for this on Ebuyer.co.uk and found


Crucial 1GB DDR PC2700 333MHz 200pin SODIMM 128mx64 for notebooks
for 88.90 which I believe is the same spec.


However I also found


Crucial 1GB DDR PC3200 400MHz 200pin SODIMM for notebooks for 83.18


My Question is


1) can i use the faster memory than the specification.


There should be no problem there. I haven't done exactly the same as you
but recently added a DDD333 SODIMM, from Crucial to a Thinkpad to go along
with the original DDR266 memory.

2) Can i mix memory ie 1x256mb (PC2700) and 1x1gb (Pc3200)


Yes again - should be OK.
