Question about Dell Dimension 1100 PC Desktop
I have a dimension 1100 desktop that i took the ram out of to try some "freebie" ram and when i seen it wouldnt work ..i reinstalled the original cards in it.. i know they are in right and i tried one at a time(i have two 512 cards) and i even switched the slots they are in; still nothing. i have tried reinstalling them a bunch of times but all this done was stop the beepng that was coming on when i started pc(this started when i tried at first to reseat the original ram). now the mnitir wont come on but a second and goes back to yellow on the power light,
You may have fried the original RAM by using improper installation techniques (no static provisions) or you may simply not be seating the modules properly, it take more force to put them back than you might realize. RAM is very specific to proper fit (voltages, etc.) Freebie RAM is rarely free.
