My laptop worked great. I decided to upgrade the ram to a 2g. I went to my local Staples store and bought one and took it home and put it in my laptop. It wouldn't power on so I took it back to Staples and they gave me another brand which I returned cause it also wouldn't work. Put my own ram back in but my laptop still won't power on. I get nothing at all. Could this ram have fried my laptop? Or is there a fix for this.

The connections at pins and holes could just be dirty or possibly the solder is broken loose inside the recepticle in the Asus.Latter is most likely.If you're into fixing it,and the soldered connections in receptical are bad,luck to ya friend.Would but be a good unit to upgrade to Windows 8 with an Intel processor and 4Gb RAM,even a 500 GB hard drive.Hmm,may a swell just buy a NEW ONE.I'm kidding.I personally like working on computers.I've kept this 2008 Toshiba running since August 08.Done probably 10 or 12 re-formats,3 different hard drives,went 4GB RAM and back to 2 GB and made no difference in speed.I'm about to retire this one this week and go to the Asus that I found on sale at Staples for $279,with all the fine bells and whistles I spoke of earlier.Have a food day.Regards,Rigger.
Simply take the laptop to Staples or any computer store and any associates will show you all the available RAMs recommended for you laptop because they have a cross reference data base - if the upgrade don't work, they'll buy it back or get you one that will. You won't have to spend unnecessary time doing the research yourself.
It is not that you can add any amount pf RAM to ant PC/laptop. Each motherboard has the TAM quantity fixed and you cant exceed it. It may be less than that quantity or equal but not more. So must be the case with you.
Yes, you can upgrade RAM of your Dell laptop. When you are upgrading purchase a RAM which is compatible to you laptop (or you may buy the same RAM but the speed are fast). I think 2g to 4g is enough RAM to run to your laptop.
Try reseating the memory and if that doesn’t work, install the 512’s one at a time to see if one might be defective. If the laptop still won’t turn on, reinstall original memory and see if laptop powers on. Your responses are intended to improve the level of service provided.
