The mobo for a PowerEdge 6450 has 16 slots - four banks of four.
Acceptable memory: PC133 Registered ECC SDRAM DIMMs. Must install memory in fours. (This may be a problem, as it appears you only have two)

A picture of how it should look can be found here:

The first bank of four is probably already populated with memory, just pick the next available 'quad' of slots and install as you would any computer memory.

Fault3e coming up onscreen

Faulty motor in your washing machine.

Samsung uses the 3E error code to indicate a drive motor tach fault. If that sounds complicated, it's not. If you're handy, you can fix your Samsung front load washing machine error code yourself.
Below is a list of several things you can try before ordering and replacing parts to fix the 3E fault code.

How To Fix 3E Samsung Washer Error Code:

1. Unplug The Washing Machine:
Unplug the washer for 2-3 minutes. If the fault is displayed because of an electronic glitch, or communication issue, unplugging the washer for several minutes may possibly reset the electronic panel. Make sure to leave the washer unplugged for at least 2-3 minutes. Leaving unplugged for that long will allow the capacitors located on the printed control board will discharge. letting the capacitors completely discharge is the best way to reset these electronic control boards.
2. Check Wire Connections On Drive Motor:
One fairly common issue that causes the 3E error code is connection problems. Double check the wire harness on the motor. To do so you will need to remove the small back access panel to see the motor and connections. On the back right side you'll see the motor and the motor wie harness. If this was my call I would remove the connection and check the inside of the molex connection. Sometimes the contacts inside the contain burn/melt. If that check good examine the first several inches of the wire as it leaves the molex connector. I've seen the wire break a couple inches away several times. I'm not sure if it's from stress or friction but I've seen it a couple times so double check that.
3. Check Wire Connections On Control Board:
The control board could possibly have a faulty wire connections or loose connection. Not very common at least not in my area but it could happen so It's worth mentioning. Double check each connection on the control board. Make sure each connection is tight and the wires are not pinched are burnt anywhere. Again if this was my service call I would remove each wire one at a time and plug back in making sure each wire connection is seated tightly. That just ensures everything is good and sound and one more thing is ruled out.
4. Check Hall Sensor:
The hall sensor on the back of the washer monitors the speed and direction of the tub. The sensor can be out of range or it could also have a faulty wiring connection. I've also seen the wire harness on the motors hall sensor break. I know of other technicians who have seen the same issue. Double check the hall sensor. If you have a multimeter, you could ohm the sensor out. You can ohm the sensor out from the board or directly at the sensor. If you tested the hall sensor from the board, that would rule out a broken wire at the same time. That's usually how I test these hall sensors. You don't have to slide the unit forward and you can test it from the front.
Finally if all the above test good. The motor is going to most likely need to be replaced to fix the fault code. The motor on these units are actually very reliable. Unfortunately a few of them most have made it out of the factory with issues because the 3E error code on Samsung washers is becoming more and more common. I used to see this code very rarely. In the last two months I bet I've seen it 3-4 times. Electronics Appliances Tablets Laptops Phones TVs Samsung US

I just need to upgrade the memory on a Dell Precision 530MT.. can't seem to find the exact type of memory it needs.. any ideas?


When installing memory modules in the system board sockets and not using the optional memory riser boards, observe the following guidelines:
  • Each memory socket on the system board must be occupied either by a RIMM or a CRIMM.

  • Memory sockets must be upgraded in matched pairs. In other words, two sockets in a pair must contain modules of identical capacity, number of components, and speed. See "System Board Memory Components" to identify pairs of sockets.

  • Mixed pairs of ECC and non-ECC modules all function as non-ECC.

  • Be sure to install a RIMM in socket 1 first (closest to the processor) before installing modules in the other sockets.

  • The system board supports PC600 and PC800 memory modules.

  • what memory part numbers you should buy and cost
the link below will give you what type of memory you need to isntall

The monitor just shuts down for no reason and won't restart Dell W2600 26" LCD/TV Wide Screen Flat Panel HDTV

I realize this post is probably late now but I did come accross one of these Dell little Jewels a couple of weeks ago. After reviewing the problems everyone has had with these I have found the problem that is the fix to this issue. It is not the power supply at all. Leave it alone. The problem can be found on the logic main board. I have seen a post that it is the memory chip located at I232 but that is not the problem either and if it was most people would not be able to replace it anyway because the part is surface bond mounted which means it is not to be removed. the problem is with the LM1117 800mA Low-Dropout Linear Voltage Regulators. There are two of them located close to the main power connector and one more is located on the lower right hand area of the board. These are fine tuned and if they malfuction due to heat then they will send a signal to the power supply to shut down. They have a thermal sensor in them. The part can be replaced with several others but should be replaced with the 2.5v chip. The older the monitor has become before this problem occures may result in damage to memory chip located at I232 which will of course make these monitors trash. After all three are replaced on the locic board with exact same brand and part; you will find two small reset buttons loacted in the middle of the main logic board and those should be reset by pushing them both at the same time after power is reapplied to the unit just to reset any errors that were recorded before unit would not power on or shut off after 10 seconds. The unit is not going into standby mode; it is going into shutoff lock mode. Changing only one of these parts out will only result in the problem occuring later; ussally in 45 to 60 minutes after unit is up and running. It will either shut off or stay on but lock up and do nothing. I hope this helps someone who never gave up. Dell will not fix this problem because of the time involved. Time wise it is too expensive. Lite on made the boards inside and Samsung supplied alot of the components. It is not all Dells fault but they could have been more proactive in helping us figure out the problem.
Good Luck

Dell Inspiron 600m - won't start

Here's a strange solution I've seen work a couple of times, not sure if this is what's happening with your laptop, but it might be worth a try:

Press down F7 and F8 keys (firmly) while pressing the power button.

It appears to be a motherboard issue, not uncommon with older 600M laptops. Other solutions have been to change out the board, processor and RAM, but you may want to buy a new laptop for what it would cost to repair one.

Hope that helps.

Dell Latitude c610 wont turn on

It could be one of two things, Memory or system board. Try and switch the memory chips around. If you have one memory chip, try the other slot. If you have two chips, try just one chip. If you don't have any luck with that, replace the memory chip. If no luck with that, you'll need a new system board. EBAY would be your best bet to get one.
