Question about Dell Vostro 230 Safe space Tower w monitor Intel CoreTM 2 Duo E7500 wVT
Beeps when upgrade the 1gb ram to 2gb ram. I'm using 2gb ddr3 1333mhz to upgrade, purchased from Dell.
Was your vostro 230 third generation? meaning, did it use DDR2 memory before or always had DDR3? They are not compatible. 2nd generation computers cannot use third gen parts. cpu, ram, most none of that type stuff. the motherboards are different and cannot change. if it was ddr2 memory you have to use ddr2, not ddr3, hope that helps.

Upgrading RAM will not affect your files. Just make sure you upgrade with compatible RAM & that you install it in pairs. So if you want 2 GB then you would want to be 2 x 1 GB RAM chips. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Yes, $100.00 was too much for that system. I saw a refurbished Dell GX270 2.8Ghz 512MB 40GB HD CD/R/RW Windows XP Pro COA w/SP3 and all updated drivers installed for $114.00 + $5.24 shipping (amazon). Also see a Refurbished IBM ThinkCentre A50P(8193A3U) Intel Pentium 4 2.4GHz 512MB DDR 48x CD-ROM 40GB HD for $149.99 + 3 day free shipping (NewEgg). There are a lot of great reasonable sellers on Ebay but it's waters are getting more and more filled with Sharks as well (as well as many other sites, Just used Ebay as an example). I know this info doesn't help much now but hopefully in the future it can. You see a certain price on a system, do a full search on that same system and compare prices and shipping charges on what you find out there.

That is the correct memory module (Non-ECC).
Remove all memory modules.
Insert the one Samsung PC3200 module and start up.
If it doesn't boot, then try a different slot.
If it works ok, then add-in your original mamory modules. If they are PC2700, then they may not work together.

Check speed settings in BIOS, make sure that the sticks are the correct voltage for your motherboard. If the specs are correct, try a program like memtest86. This will tell you where the problem is, but it is up to you to find which stick that location is :) Might take some trial and error before you find the defective one!
