Question about Dell Inspiron 3500 Notebook
I'm fixing a DELL Inspiron 3500 for someone and has 128MB RAM in it and I just got another 128MB for it to Max it out to 256MB. The problem is the 2nd RAM slot isn't reading any of the Chips. I even tested the new 128MB RAM chip and works fine. I don't know why the other RAM slot isn't reading. Also another problem with this machine is the Modem isn't reading the dialup phone line. It says NetZero is unable to properly communicate with your modem. Please make sure your modem is properly connected and turned on. It is a internal modem and has its driver installed " COM1 9600 bps modem" is what is reads.
Since the second slot is not reading either RAM module, then to fix it will require replacement of the motherboard. Motherboards for that system are cheap (Less than $50) but unless you are comfortable installing it yourself, that system really is uneconomically repairable (Cost more to fix than it is worth)
