If reseating the ram does not work, there may be an issue with the ram installed. Did you upgrade the ram yourself? You may have the wrong type of ram installed.
If you have the correct ram installed, then you should run diagnostics on the ram to be sure it is functioning correctly.
Download Dell diagnostics for your system from Dell at the following website:
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?os=WW1&catid=-1&dateid=-1&impid=-1&osl=EN&typeid=-1&formatid=-1&servicetag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_PM_1525&hidos=WLH&hidlang=en&TabIndex=&scanSupported=False&scanConsent=False
Click on the diagnostics tab and then choose "Download".
Reboot the computer and press the F12 key when the Dell screen appears. This will prompt the boot menu, use the arrow keys to select "Dell Diagnostics" and press enter. Press Tab until "Test System" is highlighted and press enter. This will run a set of diagnostics on your hardware to test all of it and determine what is functioning correctly and what is not.
If your RAM does not pass the tests, then you must replace the faulty ram. If your computer is still under warranty you should give Dell a call and have them do a service call on your computer. Telling them the results of the diagnostics test will very much speed up this process.
Best of luck!

I cant boot up my computer(memory address line failure)


This is clearly a problem with the memory. You can try two things:

1) Remove and reseat the memory sticks (with the unit unplugged)
2) Swap the boards around. Windows is not very tolerant of errors in the lower portion of memory. Swapping around the boards will change the relationship of physical memory addresses to virtual addresses. At the very least, the memory swap may help to determine which memory stick is defective.

Please keep us posted.

Did not boot and with 3 beep sound


Remove added memory
If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.
  • Additional information about determining the type of memory to use in a memory upgrade can be found on document CH000910.
Open computer and reseat memory
Sometimes when the computer is moved and/or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.
Swap memory location
If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.
If you have more than one stick of memory try removing all but one stick of memory and boot the computer. If this does not resolve the issue try removing that stick of memory and try one of the other sticks of memory.
Try another computers memory
If you have access to another computer that uses the same type of memory try using its known good memory in your computer.
If another computers memory works you know that you have bad memory. If another computers memory does not work and it is compatible with your computer unfortunately your motherboard and/or the slots on the motherboard are defective causing it to be unable to properly read the memory, which means the motherboard will have to be replaced.
Replace memory
If you've determined or believe that the memory in y our computer is bad we suggest that you replace it.

Memory write/read error on start up


Do not post your service tag on any forum, it is private data and needs to be protected (some turkey tried to get some stuff from Dell on a friend of mine's account using her tag she had posted)

If the system will post and boot, try flashing the BIOS to the current version. Then try each RAM module one at a time. Generally, only one module will fail at a time. SO take one out, boot to BIOS (SO it recognizes the RAM quantity change) then see if the system boots without error. If it does, then the module removed is likely bad. If the error still occurs, try the steps above with the other module. If errors occur with only 1 module, replace that one.

If errors occur with either module, you may have a motherboard issue. Or, very unlikely, 2 bad memory modules

Continuous beeping sound


Do you get video? If so then it could be a stuck key on the keyboard.

Do you get no video? If so then reseat the RAM.
