All my possessions for 2Gb of RAM


A couple of weeks ago, I ordered 2Gb of RAM for Hirilonde (my Dell Inspiron 6000 notebook computer) in 1Gb DIMMs from They finally arrived this past week; I installed them and booted my system. My BIOS detects them. It sees that they are 533MHz. Each of them works individually in either DIMM slot. Once it actually boots, however, the system slows to a crawl and finally just freezes.

Any idea how I can turn the above thrice-bedeviled RAM limit off?
