remove the bios battery for a few seconds...and place it back on ...this will make it see the new ram memory modules...if you are sure they are compatible ..they will work .....in fact ..the ddr1 333 512 M is more that compatible with your system and it will work after you remove the battery ...\ my recommendation is to reinstall a clean operation system after you boot up ...and format the C partition too...this have to be done after memory changes to get the max out of them ..
A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power
adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop,
remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop &
see if it works. If the laptop works directly from the power adapter
with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case
we can suspect that the battery is defective.
Since you have power on your laptop. I have this questions you need to answer: 1. have you seen Dell logo after turning on the computer? 2. After turning on the computer heard beeps? If all no do this
1. Turn off laptop remove batt and use ac adapter 2. While laptop is off press Fn key + Power button to run test check if you see display test in progress. If no, wait for 5 minutes to listen to beep codes. Once heard beeps keep pressing hold on N key. If fails turn off laptop
3. While laptop is off, press hold D key + power button. Check if you will see colors display whole screen. If no this will need to replace LCD call Dell. If see colors whole screen replace motherboard call dell.
Your RAM is failing. Please make sure the laptop is OFF, and put it up side down. You will see a panel ( i have an 1100 too ) in the middle of the laptop. Its about 2x4 inches. Unscrew the 1 screw. Remove one stick of RAM gently. Put the cover back on and turn the laptop on. If that works then throw away that ram stick you took out. If it doesn't work, take out the RAM stick that is still in there, and put the other one in by itself. If the problem still exists you've got some real issues, but i think thats the problem.
