I added a 256 meg DDR ram chip in open ram bay,,computer wont recognize it,,I swapped chips,,putting new chip in first bay,,computer booted great,,swapped chips around,,still,not recognizing second ram chip,,am i doing something wrong,,went to crucial,,ran their scan,,it doesnt see the extra ram either,,thanks,,any help is appreciated.
It could be the wrong ram that u are using when i put extra ram in I make sure they are all the same brand. some boards take 2 different types of ram (speeds) i would go back to crucial with your good ram in and then do a check and see what ram your board needs

When your computer appears to slow down, one way to help increase its speed is by adding memory. You can easily purchase memory chips from various online sources or if you have a Dell Dimension and want to stick with Dell products, you can purchase additional memory chips from Dell itself. It is not difficult for a non computer person to add memory to a Dell Dimension, although sometimes, it is cheaper to purchase a new computer and then install additional memory.
Shut down your computer, turn the computer off and unplug it. Open your computer case. There will be two thumbscrews on the back of the Dell Dimension computer case that will release the cover. The side of the computer case will then slide backward and lift away from the rest of the box. Locate the slots for RAM. These are short off-white slots that are near the power supply on the motherboard. They will be slightly longer than the RAM you are about to add. There will be at least one RAM chip already in place in one of the slots. Place your new RAM chip into a blank slot gently. It does not matter which slot you use; any will work. When you press the RAM into place, be sure the notch on the chip lines up with the slot. There will be a guide on the slot to ensure that you do not insert the chip backwards. Press down on the RAM chip until it locks into place. There are two guides on the side of the slot that will snap into place on the sides of the chip to ensure the chip does not fall out. It will take a bit of pressure to make the chip snap into place, so press straight down into the motherboard to get the chip in place. Close the computer case, put the thumbscrews back where they belong and start up the computer. Your Dell Dimension will sense the new RAM, which will be available to the operating system when the computer starts up. Hope this helps.
disconnect pc from power, open pc and there are 2 or tree banks for the memmory whipe old memmory out by pressing lip on the end of the old memmory put new memmory module in the bank look up for the small bubbelle on the connecttor in the bottem and press smoutly new chip now the lips are going klicking the memmory in position and the yob are fixed.
the model SR1010NX can take upto 1gb max of ddr 1 ram and must be done a 2x 512 ddr 1 chips
256 MB (1 x 256)
1 GB (2 x 512 MB) requires the replacement of the installed 256MB DIMM

First of all, make sure the ram are identical, becuase having 3 different random access memory chips in the computer can cause problems. Also make sure the ram chip is sitting in there properly. Next you should check under start go to run and type in "dxdiag".See how much memory it reports the computer has. If it reports 700etc mb,, then the one memory chip might be faulty. Also, check with the system manufacturuer, and make sure you're not overclocking the computer. Overclocking is when you put too much memory in a computer and it doesnt recognize one of the chips. 700etc mb might be the maximum your computer can handle.
its that 512 mb total capacity for your computer memory?? if so read this:
To find the total amount of RAM that can be added , subtract the amount of RAM currently in the computer from the maximum amount of memory the computer can hold. For example, a computer has 256 MB of RAM. If the maximum amount of memory the computer can hold is 512 MB, then 256 MB is the amount of RAM that can be added. this info from the HP website , to find out more , go to http://www.hp.com/support , enter the model number , and look for more information about your computer specs, hope this helps , please rate & thanks AJ
