Question about Dell Dimension 3100 PC Desktop
I upgraded my Dimension 3100 memory from two 512 mb memory cards to two 1 gb memory cards. The PC recognized the memory but my McAfee would not run and my browser would get and error and shut down. This may be linked to the McAfee issue but I was wondering if anyone knows why upgrading the memory would cause this problem.
That does not sound like a problem with a memory upgrade. try to unistall McAfee and reinstall. The memory change may have threw McAfee off. Make sure that the ram is also in the right bus. Buses are color coded and the 2 ram stick have to go into the same bus. this can cause problems
