Question about Dell OptiPlex GX110 PC Desktop
I removed my 2 DIMMs in order to see what they were to check if I could upgrade; now I can't get them back in. I open the tabs and push the memory in, but it never slides down. At first I realized that I had rather stupidly been trying to put it in the wrong way. I now have the notches matching up, but it gets no further. What am I not doing?
Installing hardware in your PC can be tricky if you want to do it your self. Make sure that the memory is almost perfectly align before you push them in, it will take a reasonably amount of force don't over do it if they do not go in try aligning them again it takes patience. The tabs are to help them go all the way down and to keep them on place. Good luck!

Push in the DIMM from the ends not the middle. If it won't move, try pushing the tabs in a little as you are applying pressure to the DIMM. Sometimes it's easier to do one side at a time.

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
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
i hope this helps --
