Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop
I had 2 towers and took a matched set of 1g sticks to upgrade my dell dimension 3000. The computer only recognizes 1g still, does that mean the motherboard only supports 1g? If that is the case is there a way to have all the ram used short of replacing the motherboard?
Memory Upgrade for Dell Dimension 3000, the Dell Dimension 3000 takes the PC2700/3200 DDR SDRAM DIMMs. Supports Dual Channel DDR. Memory Type, and comes installed with 256 MB (removable) of Memory. You can upgrade your Dell Dimension 3000 to up to a maximum of 2.0 GB Memory, the system has 2 sockets to install Memory, already with 256 MB (removable) standard Memory installed. For best system performance use the maximum amount of allowed Memory per slot for your system.
1GB Module 128x64-400MHz DDR400 PC3200, 184p DIMM, 2.5v, Sync, CL=3.0 does this match the memory you have?
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

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.
Please rate this solution.

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 --
