    Well I ran that crucial memory scan and it claims my pc can handle 2 gb, sad thing is now at 1.5 it is doing the exact same thing , after it sits awhile, i had a 256 and a 512 before and never had any of these problems. Any things i should change in the boot menu or any othr help would be greatly appriciated. thank you. John

    The Motherboard may be limited in how much RAM it can address. Check the computer upgrade & service guide, which can be downloaded from Dell Support if you don't have it.

Though I could not find it I am guessing that you mother board BIOS was programmed to read no more that 1.5 GB Ram.

First of all you have to identify the blue screen error code. Blue screen errors normally occurs due to infected windows files. You need to scan PC to remove malwares, junk and virus.
Also update the drivers that control your PC.

To fix this problem instantly use system optimization tool like Reginout.

I have a blue screen and when I try to boot from cd my keyboard is not working on Dell dimension 3000. I can't type my password in. I have had 7 password failures.


Hello
If the keyboard is USB then try with PS/2 keyboard, the USB keyboard normally gives that kind of problem (blue screen and no typing)

Added 2g to a dell dimension 3000, only 1g recognized


Dell has a really good support site. You log on, enter your service tag number (on the top of side of your PC) and they will tell you exactly how much ram you support, the type of ram needed and how many slots it has. If it was a matching pair then it should be working, unseat it and reseat it, it may not be in all the way. If still don't show then put it back in the old computer and see if it reads it. If not then the RAM stick got damaged during the move. But no doubt you should be able to handle more that 1GB of RAM. Good Luck, let me know if you have any questions.

I get blue screen of death on 5 of my 6 logins.


When the computer is booting up try to boot into safe mode and go into the device manager. To get there right click on my computer and select properties. In the device manager look for any devices that have any icons next to them and disable(unless it is video or something important) then restart the computer enable the device and update drivers. If this does not work let me know
