1 Answer

Installed new RAM, PC would not boot up.

I have installed a Kinsgton 1GB PC2 - 5300 CL5 240 - Pin DIMM DDR2 667 RAM (KVR667D2N5/1G) to be paired up to another Kingston 1GB RAM (KVR667D2N5/1G - SP) which is exactly the same.
The problem is that the PC would not boot up when I install the ram.
What should I do to let the PC boot and recognize the RAM?

Will the PC boot? It may just be loose. Try it again. The PC may not boot if it does'nt recognize the memory.

I bought a new 1GB ram(DD2) when i insert it it nt work bt whenever i insert it with old 512MB ram then its work bt in bios setting only show the 1GB ram

Maybe 1GB is the maximum amount of memory that your system will hold. And maybe your system likes memory to be in pairs, so when you put the 1GB in by itself it didn't work, but when you put it in with a 512MB it works.

The manual for your motherboard states:

For dual-channel memory configuration (2), you may:

• install identical DIMMs in all four sockets OR

• install an identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A1 and DIMM_B1 (yellow

sockets) and another identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A2 and

DIMM_B2 (black sockets)

* Always use identical DDR2 DIMM pairs for dual-channel model. For

optimum compatibility, we recommend that you obtain memory modules
from the same vendor.

Unit came with 2 256 mem sticks--bought and installed 2 1GB sticks(pc3200,400mhz,84pin,low density,DDR--unit will not boot

The 2 1Gb RAM are either the wrong type or they are incompatible.
Try to use the same brand and speed as the 256 Mb RAM that was installed in your Dell.

    Installing a third RAM stick causes failure to boot Vista. All RAM sticks work, one at a time or in pairs, in any combination of sockets, but adding a third stick causes blue screen of death and adding a...

    As all clarification requests, you should be more specific so we can help you. Now your problem could most probably be that the third RAM you want to put does not comply for dual channel. If you want to use three DIMMs in a dual-channel configuration, install a matched pair of DIMMs equal in speed and size in DIMM 0 (blue) and DIMM 1 (black) of channel A. Install a DIMM equal in speed and total size of the DIMMs installed in channel A in either DIMM 0 or DIMM 1 of channel B. Your best bet is to have all your RAM in identical configurations of bus speed and size.

    Will this ram support my motherboard?

    your motherboard supports • Supports DDR2 533/400 DDR SDRAM DIMMs
    • Accommodates two unbuffered DIMMs
    • Up to 1 GB per DIMM with maximum memory size up to 2 GB
    that ram may or may not work, most likely not as the motherboard was designed for slower memory.

    Have got a Kinsgton 1GB PC2 - 5300 CL5 240 - Pin DIMM DDR2

    You're not giving enough information to make that decision. Is your PC5300 a 667MHz stick? A better way is to go to and let the website analyze your system and let you know what RAM is suited for your system. It is done automacially.

    RAM has to be

    Four 184-pin DDR DIMM sockets

    Supports PC3200 (400 MHz) /PC2700 (333 MHz) / PC2100 (266 MHz) DDR DIMM type

    Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory module is 1 GB

    Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory is 4 GB
    It has to be the same.

    • If you are replacing a memory module, put the
    new memory module in the same memory slot
    from which the old memory was removed.
    • If you are adding a memory module, install the
    new module into the socket nearest the
    preinstalled module, and install additional
    modules in the next available sockets
