Good day sir/maam, you need to open the side cover of the dell PC, now look at the picture below:

Turn the PC off, the encircled part is the memory slot, on its side is the release/locking lever, place the lever in the release (push it on the side) now insert the module vertically with then gently push it down until the lever snaps into lock. Do it with the next module, takes a little practice, if the module is snug and fit. thats it. Power on the PC. if you hear continuos
beeping, power the pc off, remove the modules and do the installation again. Do this several times until the PC response.

I have a Dell XPS 600 Desktop. I have a new HDD SATA. I installed the new HDD and I try install Windows XP by pressing F12 to boot from disk. It take me to a screen where it says, Press enter to install...


Don't press F12, that tells the Dell to restore Windows from a hidden partition located on the original hard drive. Since you are using a new drive, you need to boot from the Windows XP CD and follow the instruction to load the operating system.

CD BURNING


This sounds like a dirty CD Drive, you can purchase a CD Drive Cleaner from most electronic stores that sale blank CD's. Maxell and Memorex are good blank CD brands. In addition make sure you are storing the CD's in a dry, dust free area, also make sure after using the CD Cleaner that there isn't any dust or debri. Keeping the drive free and clear of dirty will help with performance, if this does not help the last resort would be to replace the CD drive.
