Hi Anonymous,

My name is Pradeep and I work for Dell's Social Media Team.

Try reseating RAM and check how much RAM is showing in BIOS. Try booting the system with RAM individually. Let us know RAM info during boot up.

Please check if RAM is compatible with DIMM slots.
please update BIOS using the link: and let us know the results.
Please run diagnostics by following the steps on this link:

Before you pronounce it dead, try removing the ram chip(s), wipe the contacts clean with a pencil eraser and reseat them onto the motherboard 2-3 times.Still doesn't work, try new ones. Still doesn't work. Bad motherboard.

I have intel D102g mother board. that can accomodate max 2gb RAM (DDR2) throug dual channel. however i have properly inserter two ram's one is 512mb other is 1gb. but system shows only one channel is...

To the best of my knowledge, if both RAM speeds are the same and compatible with your FSB your BIOS will reconize them and not average their capacity or favor a compatible stick over another. Sorry that I couldn't be of more help. Good luck.

No boot up / no post for new CPU (ECS G31R-M7) with Intel E5200

i have a ecs g31t-m with a pentium e5200 dual core. i bought the board from ebay and the bios needed to be flashed before it would reconize the processor. after flashing the bios i still had the same problem. i found that in the user manual there is a list of "qualified" ram. before looking at this list i tried some ram that was not on the list and it wouldn't boot. after changing the ram to one that was on the list it finally booted up. however, after getting it to boot and reloading win xp, i cant get any drivers to load for the onboard equipment. so now i'm stuck. i hope this helps and if someone can give me direction on the drivers i'd be in good shape.

System speed

Your CPU speed depends on your front side bus speed. Overclock is an option but never recommended. The upgrading ram is cheapest and most noticable upgrade you can do. If your do want to upgrade your computer i would recommend upgrading ram. Remember any computer with a 32-bit processor can only reconize 4 gig's of ram.
