Do you have the user manual ?, looking at the Dell site there are a few vostro, you need the serial No.

The simplest thing is to go to Crucial.com and download their memory analyzer app. It will tell you exactly what kind of memory you have and how it can be upgraded according to Dell.

An alternative is to use CPU-Z app, it tells you everything about your system in more detail that you probably care for

Actually with a Dell the easiest thing to do is visit www.support.dell.com enter in your Dell service tag and you will have access to the orignal configuration as well as upgrade parts and compatibility.

Just dont buy your upgrades from Dell, their prices are as inflated as their ego! LOL!

Laptop memory is shorter in length and if you are trying to buy some look for "SODIMM" which stands for small outline dual in-line memory module. In a desktop you use "DIMM" modules (dual in-line memory module) which are phtsically longer. (Remember to take anti-static precautions before handling the modules as you can easily kill them with a static discharge)
