Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop
Removed old 256 sticks (2) and replaced with 2 1gig sticks all specs match. Now computer will not power on ( no green light except on drives)
What happened? Put old memory back in and now same thing
Hi there......ok here is a mayb e dumb question but I see people do this so.... you did not attempt to remove or install the memory while it was on did you? If so, the motherboard is most likley now toast..... IF NOT, I see Dells do this once in a while as well. You will need to flash the bios by moving the BIOS jumper to it;s other position and power up the PC..... it may or may not power up. Then replace and try to power up again. IF NO LUCK.... contact me and we can go over some other options! FUN =)

remove 1 memory stick b'coz its possible ur pc couldnt support 2gb of memory. try 1 first. if ok then try 2nd only. if both works then its mean ur system doesnt support it. also reconfirm the bus speed of both rams. should be matched.

Please take one of the memory cards and try and try the same card in all the slots also try the second memory card. Also check if your getting the memory beep at the start up and dell diagnostic lights all the lights should be green
