Question about Dell INSPIRON 6000 CENTRINO 1.7GHZ,512mb,40GB,DVDRW,XP (086216118098) PC Notebook
I bought a new 1g ram stick and when i opened up the dell I noticed there were 2 256 RAM sticks. So i looked online to see if I can just replace one or if i needed to buy an additional one and I found a site that said you can just use the new one with one empty slot or you could add the new one to one old stick. So I tried both ways, neither worked. I put everything back to its original state and now it wont boot at all and have tried taking them out again and replacing them, still nothing. any suggestions?
Use ac power
try the 1 gig in each slot make sure it's secure.
If system still won't boot
then restart and try to get into bios setup
then set to default settings restart
if still not successful then replace the old ram make sure it's secure in the slots and restart
Then i would suggest taking new ram back and if you give them your make and model they can suggest ram for you
