The 2 1Gb RAM are either the wrong type or they are incompatible.
Try to use the same brand and speed as the 256 Mb RAM that was installed in your Dell.

I have a Dell Dimension 3000 Desktop P.C. , you can max the P.C. to 2GB of ram with 1GB in each slot.
I have 2 x 1GB DDR 333 CL2.5 184pin Dimm 128x64 CT12864Z335.16TDY from CRUCIAL.COM ... There are LOW and HIGH DENSITY, 1 seems to work better than others in different Motherboards. The Ram you need will be expensive to newer 1's. Check using the CRUCIAL Motherboard test when you open there site, that will help you then check on Ebay for other prices. But remember Crucial's will be brand new guaranted. Prices seem to be around £25 - £40 per 1GB.

I need to buy memory for my computer its an emachines desktop model# T3410 512 MB DDR SDRAM and I dont know what to get


in DDR ram there is some models like ddr and ddr2 and another new model is DDR3. First you check what is your ram related to. for that in some pcs bios option system information the details are there. For that at the time of booting before windows logo press the button whatever is showing to enter setup. and check otherwise remove your ram and take that to a computer shop and take a new ram with same model.

And one more thing is you have to check your clock speed of your ram. Remove your ram from pc and check if any information is there on ram

Problem With ddr2 (Upgrade From ddr 512mb 400 to ddr2 1gb 800)


If it works fine with one stick of ram. Then it is the ram that is incompatible. You can try different settings but you may end up that the stick isn't compatible. Hope this helps let me know if you have any other questions.
Thank you,

RAM upgrade is not working


A 200-pin PC-3200 SODIMM should work in your machine but it will clock down to 333MHz. Your computer has 2 slots with a max of 512MB per slot (1GB total system memory). For maximum compatibility you should stick with a low density (16-chip - double-sided) PC2700 DDR-333 SODIMM with a CL of 2.5. Link below to see an example:

My G4 466 graphite won't see my low density 512mb sdram stick!


As long as the 512MB RAM chip is running at 133Mhz it should work, it may have compatibility issues with the other RAM in the unit. Try removing the other RAM first if it does not work after that you probably have a faulty piece of memory.

New ram


Memory type is the major problem with the 741GX chipset. Very touchy. I used Crucial PC3200 High Density memory to start with (2 x 1 gig Memory), system was lagging even though adjusted settings in bios. whenever a USB device was pluged in, the system would stop responding. Switched to low density memory and no problems since (Ultra PC3200 (2 x 1 gig Memory), and the USB device problem is also solved. I am running WinXP with SP2.

Memory Stick Installation


So it seems you got the DDR / DDR2 side of the equation correct, but unknown to most, there is 'low' and 'high' density memory.

The density of memory refers to the number of chips used to make the total amount of memory that your memory stick contains. e.g. High density memory has few, large capacity chips to make up the 1024MB of memory on the stick, whereas low density memory uses many, small capacity chips to make up the same 1024MB total on the stick.

Typically, if it is a low / high density conflict, it is the 'low density' sticks only that will boot.

Me, I purchase Kingston memory when I'm unsure what the motherboard will be, and it has never failed to work.

I fix computers.
