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.

Dell Inspiron B130- Memory installation in second slot


RAM modules in laptops are secured by spring clips on both sides of the RAM module.
To release the RAM module press the clips away from the RAM module and the RAM module will pop up at an angle. You can then pull the RAM module away from the memory slot.
Insert the RAM module in the slot, push it into th slot and then press the RAM module down until the clips on the side lock onto the RAM module.

I just upgraded memory and my b130 only reads the A slot


Re-seat the memory modules. If that doesn't work try swapping the modules to see if one is defective. If both modules work in slot A then you have a damaged slot B memory slot and the motherboard needs to be replaced.

Once you installed the memory, did you enter into the System BIOS Setup screen? Do this and verify that the system recognizes the newly installed 2GB RAM. This should let the system access the new memory once you boot.

My Inspiron 1525 does not recognize the memory I added. It had 3GB, I removed the 1GB and added a 2GB. When it did not register the additional memory, I put the old one back in and it now does not...


Once you change the ram, you have to boot to the system setup so that the BIOS can recognize the new module.
When inserting the ram module in the slot, it should be at a 30 degree angle to the system and inserted till the golden contacts can not be seen looking straight down at the slot. Then press the module down until the retention clips click. The top edge of the contacts should then be barely visible.
Once the RAM has been properly inserted, then boot to the system setup, exit then boot to windows

Battery not recognized


If the battery is beyond charging, it might not be recognized but, all that I've seen could recognize it . There are 6-8 terminals on most batteries. 2 of them close the circuit indicating a battery is in place. If you have access to another battery that is made for your computer, try it. If you still don't have a battery indicated, you could have a problem in the charging system or the bios.
