Ok lay computer down plat. there are two grey buttons on the side.
compress both at same time.
lift and unit should open
you will see one or two green sticks about 3inches in size sitting in a slot call a address bus. on each end on the slot there are one lever to release the ram from its slot. . make sure you have unpluged unit from the wall socket. DO NOT stand on carpet this will release ESD. elictro magnetic discharge. remember which way the ram stick is facing press down on both end levers and remove the stick from its seating.
put new ram in the same way you took the old 1 out . levers will snap back up into place when you have it seated correctly.
close unit and boot unit. if a blur screen appears shut down and reopen unit repeat procedures by switching the rams around. if problem persist your ram is not compatible and you may have to get a two 512s or so on. i hope this was helpful.

Check that batteries are charged and installed properly.--make sure driver disc is installed if applicable- check instructions as some wireless suites need you to push a small connect button to initialise them . Also try shifting the usb conector into another USB port if it is notm getting reconised.

Hd keeps rebooting. I swapped drives, battery, memory and still the same so it must be something with the motherboard. Any suggestion. It's a Dell Optiplex GX280 desktop


It could also be the processor, either its overheating or it has simply packed up first check that the heatsink above it has been correctly installed and is resting directly on top of the processor and that the fan on the heatsink is functioning. If that doesnt work then replace the processor completely.

Optiplex gx280 processor upgrade


eykraus,
I have some experience in upgrading your Dell.
If this gx280 was my computer and want to upgrade I'll only go to 3.0 but you need to upgrade you bios to support the new upgrade. You could also upgrade the memory as well. Put the power supply you have in so you can conserve.

This normally means there is a memory error. Have you recently added memory to the sytem? You can try to remove and reseat all memory modules in the system to see if that clears the problem.

Dell PE 1600SC invalid memory configuration detected


You may need to install memory in matching pairs. If the new memory is a single 1Gb module and you didn't already have a similar one they may not work together. Try removing the original module(s) and see if it makes a difference.
