I understand you have a Optiplex GX150 Computer. Have you tried this link?

Check the technical specifications, and click on "Installing Upgrades" and make sure your RAM that would added fits those specifications. It could be your motherboard is just not compatible with the type of RAM you bought.

Cheers,

Dell latitude wont read 256 megs of ram only 128


The c600 can handle up to 512MB of RAM, so it's likely one of your RAM sticks is bad or not seated correctly. Are you using two 128MB sticks? Remove the stick from the second slot and turn on the computer with only one stick installed, and see if the RAM is recognized. Then take that RAM out and try the computer with only the other RAM stick -- if either is not recognized, that stick is bad.

If both are recognized, try reinstalling both RAM sticks and see if the computer will recognize them. If not, make sure they are both seated properly. You may have a problem with the second RAM slot if it is still not recognized. If you have access to other RAM, try that too and see if it is recognized.

Check the specs for your new ram. It sounds like you have double density ram installed. If your motherboard only supports single density it will only see 1/2 of the modual hence 64meg showing for 128 stick.


Please rate this solution if it has helped you.
Thanks, Gary

Pc freezes when new memory installed


You problem is the motherboard.On your PCs mother board the 128MB that came with the motherboard might be the highest memory the chipset on your motherboard can accommodate. The chipset is built in and you cannot change or upgrade it. You can speed up the PC with how many memo sticks you added, if the chipset can handle. So it look like if you want a fast PC you need to get a new motherboard chipset with higher memory clock frequency.
Here's the pic of the chipset on the motherboard(square type)
