Question about Dell Dimension 4700 PC Desktop
My computer un-expectantly failed on me while I was coding up my game engine. I am currently running: Windows XP SP2 (2)256mb RAM sticks (STOCK) Everything else is entirely stock.. I went out and bought two (2) new 1gb RAM sticks from staples. They are DDR2 Sticks and are PC2- I tried installing them to see if that would fix my problem and still no luck at all and I'm getting very frustrated. Can someone please help me? Thanks in advance, David
You need the EXACT speed rated RAM.
Your support page states it needs.....
400-MHz DDR2 SDRAM
NOTE: Your computer supports only registered memory
256-MB, 512-MB, 1-GB, 2-GB, and 4-GB ECC
256-MB, 512-MB, 1-GB, 2-GB, and 4-GB ECC modules to a max of 16GB

SOURCE: I am trying to install
I belive the problem is caused due to non compatible memory being installed . According the Dell documentation the memory specification is as under
333- and 400-MHz DDR SDRAM
1Gb Non-ECC on each slot.
Just check the speed of the memory you are trying to connect.
Thanks for using Fixya
