Dell Inspirion not recognizing both memory slots

I installed 2 GB of memory in a Dell Inspirion but it only reads from the side the original memory was seated in. How do I get it to recognize the other memory slot??

    I have 2x1GB RAM in my Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop. Few days back I started seeing Blue Screens sometime while working on laptop and sometime during startup. I checked the RAM and found that one SLOT is not accepting RAM or not working.
    This has left me with using only 1GB of RAM. 
    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

RAM PROBLEM ON INSPIRON N4010


Go into your BIOS and set it back to factory default. After you do that look at the page that lists your memory and see if both 2GB memory sticks are recognized. If one of them still isn't being recognized. You'll have to physically go inside of the computer and look at your memory slots to see how much memory is in each slot. Its possible you might not see both 2 GB memory sticks. If you do see both then one of them might be bad and you would need to talk to that tech shop to get it replaced.

Hi. My new H61iCafe board should be able to recognize 16 GB (4 memory slots). I have bought 2 8-GB-Kits (each consisting of 2x4GB): Kingston KVR1333D3N9K2/8G After inserting 2 modules, 8 GB are...


Number of Memory Slots: 4-240pin


Note:


1. Before you install memory module on this motherboard, please read below message to avoid any improper installation: - Due to chipset limitation, if you plan to install three or four memory modules on this motherboard, please install only single-sided memory modules.To install two memory modules on this motherboard, please install them on DDR3_A1 and DDR3_B1 DIMM sockets.
2. For the detailed installation information, please refer to the user manual or quick installation guide. - Due to the operating system limitation, the actual memory size may be less than 4GB for the reservation for system usage under Windows 32-bit OS. For Windows 64-bit OS with 64-bit CPU, there is no such limitation.

I have a dell dimension 4600. It has original memory cards installed. 2 256 MB for a total of 512 ram. I recently tried to install 1 GB memory card. When I start up computer it beeps several times,...


hello

several beeps in a system is caused by a memory issue -- If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.

Sometimes when the computer is moved and/or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.

If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.

If you have more than one stick of memory try removing all but one stick of memory and boot the computer. If this does not resolve the issue try removing that stick of memory and try one of the other sticks of memory.

the specs can be found at this link
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4600/en/4600i/sm/specs.htm

the system you have is upgradable to 4G of RAM, and this RAM must be installed in equal pairs
so if you have 4 slots to insert memory in (assuming you will retain the 2 256M) , you must install the other slots by 2 512M, 2 1G or 2 2G DIMMs -- make sure you isntall exact same DIMMs, dont mix memory makers or specs, other than what Dell specifies

memory type must be
PC2700 (333-MHz) or PC3200 (400-MHz) DDR SDRAM
(non-ECC)

i hope this helps --

New memory not recognized by Compaq Pavilion a1200y


most probably the problem that you have is not on the RAM stick itself but on the memory slot. Both memories can be detected by slot 1 indicates that both are working.. both working memories cant be detected in slot 2 which indicates a bad memory slot

Please provide everything on the sticker of the memory. When you bought the RAM, was it a pair or did you buy individual sticks? Your system can only support a maximum of 2 GB of PC5300 DDR2 RAM, split over two 1 GB sticks of RAM per slot. If you have tried exceeding this, it will not work, and even if it were to, it would eventually cause irreparable damage to your system.

Good Luck,

Added 2g to a dell dimension 3000, only 1g recognized


Dell has a really good support site. You log on, enter your service tag number (on the top of side of your PC) and they will tell you exactly how much ram you support, the type of ram needed and how many slots it has. If it was a matching pair then it should be working, unseat it and reseat it, it may not be in all the way. If still don't show then put it back in the old computer and see if it reads it. If not then the RAM stick got damaged during the move. But no doubt you should be able to handle more that 1GB of RAM. Good Luck, let me know if you have any questions.
