    I ran it solo and that did not work either. The max on this us supposed to be 4 gig. Checked the bios and nothing there to help. You can go lower but not higher for some reason. I even updated the bios from dell and still no change????? thanks for you answer....

    I also heard that Dell uses special dimms that you can only get from them is that true.

Your machine's maximum is 1GB. By installing a 1GB chip on top of your 256MB chip, you've overloaded your motherboards capability. Remove the 256 chip and reboot. Your machine will then recognize the 1GB of RAM with no error.

Got an AsRock P4i65G mobo and bought 2 gig RAM for it. However, I have bought ECC memory by mistake instead of Non-ECC. PC wont boot with the new RAM. Is there any way I can get this to work such as with...


Hi, you can download a manual here:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?model=p4i65g

Your mainboard DOES NOT SUPPORT ECC RAM.
This ram type is ONLY intended for servers
or mainboards that are compatible for that ram type.

This is what your mainboard supports:

Dual Channel DDR memory technology
- 2 x DDR DIMM slots
- Supports DDR400/333/266 non-ECC, un-buffered memory
- Max. capacity of system memory: 2GB

Use only the asrock site when upgrading the bios.
And a bios upgrade does not supports the ecc ram anyway.

Hope this will help you.

    # of RAM slots


    There are two models for this type of desktop, the first having only two DIMM slots, but that takes PC2700 Ram, you have stated that yours takes PC3200 which would make it the second model in which case your model has (4) DIMM slots, each slot is capable of holding a 1 GB stick of ram for a total of 4 GB. Your RAM specification is DDR PC-3200
