Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop
Hi there..... check to see if your machine supports the type of ram you bought.....ie, ECC or non ECC and if it is the same speed like PC2100....some speed families will clock up or down to allow slight differences but not always.....and in some cases you may just have defective RAM! Hope this helps.

Have a look at this thread http://www.fixya.com/support/t136790-dell_e510_memory and see if any of that helps you - are you sure that you have exactly the right type of ram? - jut because it fits the slots doesn't mean it is supported by the platform. hope this helps:)

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
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
i hope this helps --
