For best Computer performance use the maximum amount of allowed Memory per slot for your Computer. Choose the following Memory Upgrade for Dell Dimension 1100 Computer.
you may have dislodged something as you carried out the upgrade - Check all the cables are seated correctly - also check the memory is correctly seated
does the machine bleep at all this will give an indication of what the problem may be ------ the number and pattern of the bleeps
the next step would be to remove all unnecessary devices, like the CD , DVD , spare drives - getthe machine to a minimum state of just PSU, MOBO, CPU, Memory, harddrive, graphics and see if that boots
also as you have upgraded the video card can you put the old one back in....
Recommend checking the motherboard specifications to see how much memory and what type it can handle. If you don't have this, you can easily locate it on the internet. The replacement memory sticks will need to be of the same type. That means your motherboard may not be able to handle the PC3200 type chips you have. It may require the PC2600 type instead.
It's hard to say without your service tag to know what motherboard they installed, what type of ram you're using, etc. You can access a lot of automated info by entering the service tag at Dell's site, available by clicking here But you're going to be limited, at best, expecially by today's standards. You might be better off getting a new system and installing your hard drive as a slave, if you're attached to some of what's installed there. You'd still have to have access to installation files for all your applications, though.
E210882 is a number found on more than one Dell System Board. Dimension 8400 and 4600 come to mind. Possibly there are more. Secondly, E210882 is not a Dell Part number (DP/N or DS/N). While Dimension 8400 is a 775 socket, Dimension 4600 is a 478 socket. So they don't fall to the same family.
In any case the network controllers used on Dell System Boards are Intel and Broadcom.
To proceed, at least provide/confirm the system model. If this is not available, give the Dell Part Number.
It seems like you have done everything right but im not 100% sure that your memory is correct. read through the description here carefully and you will see that this memory comes in two different packages. One of them is the 400 (the ones you bought) and another in the 333 flavor. I am hoping they did not make a mistake and gave you the wrong ones. Look directly at the memory and make sure. I am also including the system manual for your computer. Hope this helps.

The product is shipped in retail packaging and includes installation instructions.
download and run the dell diagnostics memory test on one memory card at a time . or run with one then switch . does only one fail . and what is the board GX or dimension. GX is really particular about memory.
