Question about Computers & Internet
I have just tried to installed an upgrade RAM on my Dell 8100. When I booted up there was a message that said, new RAM installed do you want to continue, and another message about set up. I chose "continue". However, computer was no quicker and when I looked at the system config, only one old memory was showing, not old + new. So I change the memory round in the slots. Wouldn't boot up. So I put the old one back and now that won't boot up. What can I do, can you help

there is also check frequency same of both ram.

Be sure that the memory is seated in the slot good ....the new piece of memory you bought , was it the same type ....just looked up a Dell 8100 for the type of ram it uses and from what i can see it takes RAMBUS not the normal ram ...this must be installed in pairs to work...here is a piece from website Technical specifications:
Memory type: PC800 RDRAM (non-ECC)
Memory slots: 4
Memory sizes: 64-, 128-, 256-, and 512-MB non-ECC
Max. Memory: 2GB for PC800 RDRAM
Notes: Memory must be installed in matching pairs. All slots must be populated with memory modules or CRIMMs ('blank modules'). ECC memory can be used, but this will work as non-ECC if mixed with other non-ECC memory
maby you mixed ecc memory with non-ecc memory.
Hope this helps you
