Question about Dell Dimension 2350 PC Desktop
Added 1g of ram 2100 266hz now it wont boot even with the 256 memory
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.
