Re: error message after installing memory ram...
Your memory appears compatible with your model of laptop. It is possible that you have a bad stick of memory. Try installing the sticks 1 at a time and boot up with each stick separately and see what happens. If 1 of the sticks allows you to boot but the other does not then I would contact PNY for a replacement stick. Just to double check here you are installing 2 gigs total not 2 2gig sticks for a total of 4 gigs. Max memory for Dell Inspiron laptops is 2 Gigs.

you can upgrade up to 2GB (DDR2) Your computer has 1 memory slot you remove the memory and install a new one. you can use either 2GB 800MHz DDR2 Non-ECC CL6 SO DIMM or 2GB 667MHz DDR2 Non-ECC CL6 SO DIMM
Your laptop's RAM is upgradeable to up to 4 GB using two DDR2 533/667 MHz SODIMM modules.
So your upgrade options here are: 1. Buy a 1 GB DDR2 533/667 MHz SODIMM module & install it to get a total RAM of 2 GB (Price around US$ 25). 2. Buy a 2 GB DDR2 533/667 MHz SODIMM module & install it to get a total RAM of 3 GB (Price around US$ 45).

I had the same issue on this board where it came with a Samsung 512 MB 533 MHz PC2-4200 DDR2 DIMM. I put in a 1 GB Kingston with the same specs (533 MHz PC2-4200 DDR2) and it would not recongize the Samsung anymore with the system reading as 1 GB of RAM instead of 1.5 GB. Tried every configuration and would only see the Kingston. It would only see the Samsung if I pulled out the Kingston regarless of the slots I use. So, I just bought the exact same make/model of Kingston and it recognized that fine and the system now has 2 GB of memory (max this board allows). And, I had already installed the latest BIOS for this board from Intel before doing all this so wasn't an old BIOS. I'm figuring the board didn't like something about the Samsung memory (speed, module configuration, etc.) that made it not play nice with the Kingston. If interested I bought the DM8400A/1G Kingston modules. And, this board appears not to support dual channel memory. Only has channel A, slots 0 and 1, and I read need two channels to support dual channel (seems obvious). Boards that supports dual channel memory normally have 4 memory slots, two for channel A and two for channel B, then put in matching modules in slot 0 for channel A and B and have dual channel memory access. And if want more ram, then matching modules in slot 1 for channel A and B.
