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.

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,

these different ram slots have different bus speed so they really don't work if you are using them both at once.

Please check your laptop's documentation about the speeds of these ram slots.

Adding memory, new total not recognized: IBM Thinkpad R51e-1844


Ram should always be paired. Same type, speed and size in each slot. You may have 1 SIMM/DIMM/DDR that has 2 sides of chips and the other with 1 which will do exactly what you state. RAM reads across the chips simultaneously. So if you have a different one in each slot it can go bonkers and do goofy stuff on you.

SYSTEM DOESN'T RECOGNIZE NEW MEMORY MODULE


Memory modules must be the correct type and speed, and be within the specifications for the laptop. Just because it fits in the slot doesn't mean it will work.

The Dell inspiron B130 has 2 slots. Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot. if you tried to insert a 2GB module, it will not work.

If the module is within these parameters, remove and re-seat the memory, and try swapping the modules from one slot to the other. It may be a bad slot.
