    I bled off everything, what I ended up doing was removing the ram and removing the battery and bleeding off everything for 1 minute, then reinstalled everything and booted up, on boot-up hit the F-1 key and up and running. thank you everyone

    Can you get into the bios by tapping the F2 key as it is starting up?
    if you can,then look for a choice such as "Load Bios defaults" or some such(each bios is different) then restart and see what happens.
    Then repost back here if it still wont work.
    report how far the computer will go before quitting.

A couple things.

#1 Before you started inserting and removing RAM, did you have the power disconnected? Did you blead the stored power in the motherboard by holding the power button after unplugging? Not having power removed from the system can damage the RAM and possibly the slot.

#2 When inserting RAM, it is important to have the locking levers spread, align the keyways in the Memory slots, then when inserting the module, press down FIRMLY with both thumbs till the locking levers snap up and in to locked position without touching the levers. (If you pull the levers up, the RAM doesn't seat in the slot)

#3 when you power on, on the back of the tower are 4 LEDs marked ABCD they should flash on then off in difference sequences during post, then end with all for solid green. If some are amber then there is a HW problem ans you need to post the LED pattern (AAGG for example is a memory problem)

Most likely seating the RAM properly will solve the issue.

Checking Amount of RAM

Click on "My Computer" and select "Properties" using right-click in the Explorer window.
This will open "Systems Properties."

Click on the "General" tab.
Here you can view the physical memory installed on your computer.

The amount indicated is the total RAM installed on your computer.
RAM is usually 32 MB, 64 MB or 128 MB in older PC versions.

Newer PCs are usually equipped with 256 MB, 512 MB or even higher RAM.
Check the usage.

To know the currently used RAM (based on programs you are running), open the taskbar or press "Ctrl + Alt + Del" to open a pop-up window. Click on "Task Manager."

Click the "Performance" tab.
You can view the amount of memory currently used by each program running on your PC.

New ram not working


Sounds like you bought the wrong kind of memory. It should be DDR PC2100 and it must be ECC (Not None Ecc).

Take a look at this site.

I have a dell dimension 4600. It has original memory cards installed. 2 256 MB for a total of 512 ram. I recently tried to install 1 GB memory card. When I start up computer it beeps several times,...


hello

several beeps in a system is caused by a memory issue -- If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.

Sometimes when the computer is moved and/or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.

If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.

If you have more than one stick of memory try removing all but one stick of memory and boot the computer. If this does not resolve the issue try removing that stick of memory and try one of the other sticks of memory.

the specs can be found at this link
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4600/en/4600i/sm/specs.htm

the system you have is upgradable to 4G of RAM, and this RAM must be installed in equal pairs
so if you have 4 slots to insert memory in (assuming you will retain the 2 256M) , you must install the other slots by 2 512M, 2 1G or 2 2G DIMMs -- make sure you isntall exact same DIMMs, dont mix memory makers or specs, other than what Dell specifies

memory type must be
PC2700 (333-MHz) or PC3200 (400-MHz) DDR SDRAM
(non-ECC)

i hope this helps --

I upgraded my memory RAM 2g and added 1g so it makes a 3G of ram but how come when my pc boot up up i can only see 2G ram single chanel. wen i go to my my computer----properties----general under computer:...


Could you please go online and in a search engine type "MAX RAM E-Machines (here put your model #)." Pick a link that secribes your maxi,um ram and if it's only 2GB you'll have your answer. If the max is higher there should be instructions on how to set the computer to acess and show the RAM.

Hello i bought some pc2100 ddr ram 512 mb for my dell 2350 but when put the ram in it beeps and wont boot up it came with 256mb ddr sdram can anyone tell me if this is the right ram and if so why wont it...


The best thing to do when it comes to computer ram, and replacing it, is to take the stock (the working ram that came with the PC) ram out and take it with you to a local computer store to ensure that you're getting the right kind of ram.

Your PC can be VERY picky when it comes to computer memory, so don't guess what's right for it.


Hope this helps. :)

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.

Want more ram


Check if your new RAM is properly inserted. Also, see if the speed matches the other, original one. You might be mixing speeds that gives you some trouble. Another way is to swap the RAM, place the new one to the slot of the old one. Also, check if your motherboard will allow more memory to be added in your system. You may have reached the maximum memory capacity.

Want to kow how much ram I can add and where to buy it.


Hi

Dimension 2350 Series has two memory connectors and supports non-ECC PC2100 (266-MHz) DDR SDRAM memory modules. Supported memory capacities are 128, 256, or 512MB. The maximum (total) memory is 1GB.

Regarding where you could buy? I suppose you can check you local PC store. There is always eBay if you fancy.

Adding RAM


before you buy this memory stick (ram) you should have check the specifications of this ram memory, they should be the same specs, the cast latency might be different and with different brand. how about if you remove all this ram memory and use only this KVR133X64C3/256, if this works then do not install the other 2
