First put the stick you are having issues with in a different slot; If it still does not work download memtest86 and burn it to a cd and run it with only the RAM stick you are having issues with. Here is a link to the program http://www.memtest86.com/memtest34a.zip

Can i install 2 X 2gb ddr sdram on my Gateway GT5082


From what I gather you can use DDR PC3200, DDR (non-ECC) that equate up to 4gb of ram. So, as long as the RAM you are putting in is PC-3200 and no more than 2gb per stick, you should be good to go.

Installed 2 GB of Ram (both 3200 1 GB chips). PC would not boot coorectly with 2 GB installed (errors galore). However PC runs fine with only one 1GB installed. Running XP ?


Both ram sticks must be identical to work together. A different manufacturer of one can cause all kinds of problems. Did you go to 'setup' to make sure the machine recognized the second stick? The cure is likely to be purchasing another stick identical to the other new stick. Hope this helps!

Hi,
I belive the problem is caused due to non compatible memory being installed . According the Dell documentation the memory specification is as under

333- and 400-MHz DDR SDRAM
1Gb Non-ECC on each slot.

Just check the speed of the memory you are trying to connect.

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.

First of all, if your FSB is set to 200mhz, the system will not support DDR400. "CPU at FSB 200MHz mode, it will NOT support DDR400". The FSB will have to be either 333 or 400mhz in order to utilize DDR400. Only 1GB of DDR400 is supported. As to your rebooting issue, could be because of these incompatibilities and/or you did not properly seat the heatsink/fan on the new CPU, which also means you might not have properly applied thermal compound or might have no applied it at all.

Want to buy more RAM..


Your dell dimension takes DDR ram. These are the specs:

Supported pin types: 184 pin DIMM (regular desktop DDR ram)
Supported memory types: DDR PC2700 or DDR PC3200
Supported speeds: 333mhz or 400mhz
Supported stick sizes: 128mb, 256mb, 512mb or 1gb.
MAXIMUM MEMORY ALLOWED: 2gb (2 x 1gb sticks)


If you buy two of these you will max out for ram and give you the best performance::
