    tried all of your suggestions with exception of resetting the BIOS but I will need help on that

  • sbmin Jan 06, 2009

    I put original memory back in and it works I there is also a P8 cable disconnected but I think it was already like that.

  • gerrick Jan 24, 2009

    I have the same problem. I tried installing two PC2-3200 1GB ram modules into each of the two slots, and when I powered up, the fan ran on high, but nothing else (no OS splash screen, etc.). I then returned the original ram (2 sticks of 50MB each) and that didn't work. After trying every different configuration of memory + slot, I ended up only being able to use 50MB in one slot!

    I am miffed and confused -- please help!

Either the RAM is not compatible or not inserted correctly. Try removing and reseating both modules, if no change try with only one stick then switch and try just the other to see if the problem is just with one. You could also try resetting the BIOS to factory defaults.

    To reset the BIOS on a system that won't boot is to disconnect the power and remove the CMOS battery from the motherboard and short the battery connections with a screwdriver or use jumpers if documentation is available for your particular board.

    Did you try using the original memory?
    Did you check that you didn't accidentally disconnect something in the process of the upgrade?


  • Curtis Richner Jan 06, 2009

    Well at least the system is still functional. An easier way to reset the BIOS would be to press whatever key necessary to enter the BIOS setup (F1, F2, DEL) and select the option to reload defaults

Hello, I was looking to upgrade the ram in my old dell 5150. The specs say you can use a Max of 4 1 gig sticks yet these specs where released prior to windows 7 ultimate which uses far more ram. What are...


Check www.crucial.com. Use the downloadable program to analyze your system or use the interactive menu system to explore your options.

Check online forums using google searches for terms like 'dell 5150 memory upgrade'. Sometimes, the maximum in the manual is not the real maximum. My Dimension 1000 laptop accepted a certain 1 GB card when the manual said the max was 256MB. Still running it after nearly ten years. The laptop was **** with 512MB (256 built-in and 256 add-on card) but the gf uses it every day.

I upgraded my gategay gt-5428 computer memory 1 gb to 2 gb but still runs with i gb, what i did wrong?


Hello Erik,

Are you absolutely certain that the new module is compatible with your system? Go into the BIOS and see if it is recognized there.

Crucial shows that your computer takes DDR2 memory with support for DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 PC2-6400 speeds.

Make sure it is not ECC memory. ECC is not compatible.

If you are sure of the compatibility, I would try to install the old one by itself first and make sure the system boots. Then I would remove the old one and install the new one by itself. Try booting. If it doesn't work, you may have gotten a bad module. (It happens.)

Just FYI, here is the crucial link for your computer:

Ram Memory


I did this 2 days ago on my gf's aspire 5315-2153 (walmart special $348). the underside panel has four tiny screws which must be removed and then the fun begins. The plastic panel is large and doesn't want to be removed. After 20 minutes of cursing, i was able to get it out with two hands and a small screwdriver. The plastic panel has about 7-8 tabs which also hold it in place. The original two memory modules must be removed and the two new ones installed in their place. i bought crucial memory from newegg.com (CT2KIT12864AC667) for $17 delivered (took a week to get) which was much cheaper than buying it direct from crucial.com Save the old memory modules just in case you have a problem with the new ones. After putting them in, I restarted the computer and it booted up fine. No BIOS changes or any of that were necessary. So for $17 and about 30 minutes, this lappy is now running strong with 2gb instead of 1gb. Initial impression is that it boots up faster and shuts down faster but that is about it in terms of improvement!!!
