1. Turn the computer OFF.

2. Unplug the power cord. Hold the power on for a few seconds to discharge any capacitors in the system.

3. Open the case. Locate the current RAM module(s). There are clips on either side of the module(s). Push out on the clips and lift them up and out.

4. To install the new ones, align the slots correctly, and insert the module straight don until the two tabs snap back onto the ends of the module(s).

5. Replaces the case panel, plug in the power cord and power up.

6. You may get a warning that the configuration has changed. If so, press the F key that it says, go into the BIOS, verify the amount of RAM it says, then do a Save & Exit to save the new figures.

For reference, here is a link to Dell's support page showing more detail for RAM and other replacements.

Shut the pc down, remove the cover. You will see the existing ram. Depending on how many sticks you can have install these where the existing ones are. Don't touch the metal on the sticks. Make sure it clicks in when you place it in the slots. Place the cover back on and turn on the cover. It should recognize it right away.

PNY memory


Hi

Dell Dimension 5150 supports DDR2 400MHz (PC2-3200) and DDR2 533MHz (PC2-4300) unbuffered SDRAM Memory (DIMM). You may install a total of four DIMMs in capacities of 256MB, 512MB, or 1GB. The maximum memory supported is 4GB.

From your query, I think the obvious question is; What is specification of the PNY DIMM and/or does the PNY DIMM meet the requirements for Dimension 5150?

Check for memory configuration and installation procedures for Dimension 5150 - http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim5150/en/sm/parts1.htm#wp1364711

The Chipset used on Dimension 5150 is Intel 945G Express. I am not aware of specific compatibility issues regarding the Intel 945G and PNY Memory modules. However, there may really be known issues that I am not aware of.

To proceed, ensure that the PNY Memory is compatible with Dimension 5150. If not, install compatible (memory type, speed, capacity) DIMMs.

Let me know if further help is needed.

Mike
