Question about Dell Dimension 2350 PC Desktop
Am trying to upgrade from 256MB to 1Gig (2-512 MB modules) Tried Dell's offerings as per their website. No go. The monitor stays black when the computer boots up. Returned them to Dell. Ordered from CDW, and the same problem. Tried various configs. with the memory modules, and still nothing happens. But when I Install the original 256MB back in by itself, everything works. Original is a 256MB PC2100 DDR 266MHz. The new modules I got are the same, except that they are 512MB each. Modules are seated correctly each time. What am I doing wrong?
Hmm if the pc takes DDR Ram , it should deffently take 512 sticks, have u tried booting the computer with just the one 512 stick ? or try putting the 256 stick in and 1 x 512 stick , test it that way with both sticks , some older computers there is a bios setting for upgrading to higher amount of memory, but in your case with DDR ram i dont think so , i mean it may be worth a shot going into bio's and load optimized defaults , press f10 to save settings, try one stick at a time after that , if still no go , there is a jumper pin on the mother board that u can move over a slot which will restet the bios, if u dont know this jumper pin or where it is, just remove the round battery on the motherboard for 30 seconds , then put it back in , try your new ram then , u will be asked to save settings on boot up , if it still dosent work the ram is either faulty or incompatible, alot of the time with Dell , HP /Compaq desktops there fussy with the type of ram they take, but if u ordered from dell it should have worked !! whats the brand name of the ram u have is it hynix? /HP this brand of ram has alot of issues with compatibility,
