Make sure you did not get error correcting memory.
Like server memory.
Dell's do not cope well with ECC RAM

MB keeps beeping 1 long beep no boot.


Hello try to download the manual:

http://support.asus.com/download.aspx?SLanguage=en&p=1&s=4&m=CUSI-M&os=&hashedid=n/a

Select windows xp and open the manual folder
Click on global for download.
Unzip the file and you need adobe reader to read the content.

Here is a list of beep codes:

http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm

This mainboard uses SD ram and it sounds like a ram problem.

If there is room for a ddr ram block you can`t use SD ram and DDR ram simultaneously.

Try to insert the old cpu again and upgrade the bios to support a bigger cpu. Not all cpu is supported.

Good luck

Dell 5150 will not boot


how old is the system? Have you made any changes to the system (taken anything out then put it back in? Does it COUNT the memory? is the count proper? are there any BEEP CODES being sent? if there are beep codes then write them down.. if there is a non stop beep code then something is not plugged in properly Have you added any new hardware? IE any new cards? any new RAM? DELL is an extremely PROPRIETARY system basically means that not all hardware will word in it.. if you added any new hardware, try to remove the new additions, see if it starts properly then.. It appears that the graphics card is functional since you say it makes it to the POST.. crack the system open remove and reistall the RAM memory it is possible one or more has worked loose or maybe put in somewhat out of sync.. I had a NB that I put some new RAM into, and the RAM was misconfigured even though it claimed to be for HP.. I replaced the new ram with the old and it straightened everything out for me.. sometimes the 8/16/32 nit cards won't be completely seated and that causes massive headaches too

Dell Inspiron 1100 won't read 512 Meg ram.


I had the same problem. I tried several brands of memory unsuccessfully, though they all guaranteed that their products would work with my machine. Finally, my brother (who works in IT) recommended that I go through The Upgrade Place (http://www.theupgradeplace.com/). Great price - less than half of what Dell charges - and the memory worked immediately upon installation.

When I told them that I had a Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop, they said that my PC required proprietary memory (which is true). I paid with a credit card and received the part two days later.

Good luck,

New RAM for Satellite 1400 won't work


Hi this problem has arisen on both desktops as well as laptops, the reason for it is quite simple. a lot of the RAM available on the market now is HIGH DENSITY RAM and unless your satellite is specificaly designed to run high density RAM it will not recognize it.
You will find all the major RAM brands are low density and will work fine. A brand like Kingston is an ideal option.

Won't run


Hi,
you have,nt seated the memory module back correctly.
push module in at an angle, usually about 45 degrees.
while pushing it back in, apply pressure, to push down towards the motherboard. ** check for any specs of Dust**
also check that you have,nt knocked the hard-drive ribbon cable in the process of cleaning.
