Question about Dell Dimension 5150 (DIM515MIN) PC Desktop
I bought a 2X1Gb PNY memory PC2-5300 DR2 to upgrade my Dell Dimension E510 that currently has 2X512Mb. I had all 4 in there and it didn't work. I had just the 2 1GB in there and it didn't work. I put back my 2 512s and it works fine. Is this memory not compatible. I brought the specs from the Dell service tag to Best Buy and took their recommendations. ????
One or more of the chips is probably defective. Since you have four, populate slots 1 and 2 (leave slots 3 or 4 empty) with two chips and see if they work. If not, try the other two chips. By replacing one chip at a time, you should find which is defective.

Please check the type of RAM you are using.
You must return it to BestBuy and try using a Dell store.
Call Dell Accessories sale and they will be able to give to better options and it wud work too.
