Hi,
This is Gabriel here . Please follow these steps to install the memory:

Lay the computer on its side so the system board is on the bottom of the inside of the computer. If necessary, remove a memory module: Press out the securing clip at each end of the memory module connector.

Grasp the module and pull up. If the module is difficult to remove, gently ease the module back and forth to remove it from the connector.

To insert a module, press out the securing clip at each end of the memory module connector.

Align the notch on the bottom of the module with the crossbar in the connector. Insert the module straight down into the connector, ensuring it fits into the vertical guides at each end of the connector.

Press firmly on the ends of the module until it snaps into place. If you insert the module correctly, the securing clips snap into the cutouts at each end of the module.Replace the computer cover.

Computer freezes after it boots up


There are couple of reasons for this problem: Virus, corrupted Operating system (try to reinstall OS), memory problem (try to install another good memory module), and the worst of all, defective motherboard/processor. Good luck

Can I install one (1-gig) memory stick instead of 2 match pairs (only have one) this is to replace two 256 sticks?will it preform at 1 - gig memory


Yes.

The Maximum Total Amount of Ram Memory is 2GB.
(2048MB)
The Maximum Amount for EACH ram slot is 1GB.
(1024MB)

Ram should be installed in Slot 1, when using just one stick of ram.
This is the ram slot closest to the Processor.

The Processor reads ram memory that is installed in Slot 1, first.

This is Dell Support, and the main support page for the Dimension 3000 desktop computer,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim3000/en/SM/index.htm

In the list left-click on - Technical Overview

Now click on - System Board Components

Number 1 is Slot 1.

Note*
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate computer hardware components inside a computer.

Work on a table.
After you have opened the computer case, and BEFORE you remove that ram module from it's anti-static protective bag, TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case. (Power unplugged from computer)

This will relieve your body of static.
Ignore the above if you are already aware.

Added 2g to a dell dimension 3000, only 1g recognized


Dell has a really good support site. You log on, enter your service tag number (on the top of side of your PC) and they will tell you exactly how much ram you support, the type of ram needed and how many slots it has. If it was a matching pair then it should be working, unseat it and reseat it, it may not be in all the way. If still don't show then put it back in the old computer and see if it reads it. If not then the RAM stick got damaged during the move. But no doubt you should be able to handle more that 1GB of RAM. Good Luck, let me know if you have any questions.
Please rate this solution.

I get "virtual memory low" message and cannot boot.


The real solution to this is going to involve spending some money to buy some new memory. It should cost about $30-50 depending on type and amount. 256Mb is not enough for Windows and other software to run. I would recommend buying at least 512Mb additional to add. Before you purchase open up your machine and look to see how many memory slots you have and how many are currently used. According to some specs on the internet, here is what you have.

Maximum Memory 2GB Memory Slots 2 (1 bank of 2) Install in pairs non-removable base memory 0MB Machine name: Dell Dimension 3000
CPU options: Intel Pentium 4 or Intel Celeron
Chipset: Intel 865GV Chipset
HD Bus: Ultra ATA/100
Front Side Bus options: 800MHz FSB
Memory Speed options: PC3200 DDR400 184pin SDRAM DIMM
Special notes: The Dimension 3000 has two different bus speeds each of which takes different memory. You cannot mix the speeds. Please check the speed on the memory modules currently installed, or use our "Check Your Computer" to find the correct module.
It is simple enough most anyone can do this themselves, and I could walk you thru it, otherwise you would need to take it somewhere, but my recommendation would be to do it yourself and simply ask me or others here for advice. Let me know if you want help to do this.
Good Luck!
