Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop

3 Answers

Memory Issue Hi there, I'm having a RAM problem. I recently bought 2 GB (2 x 1 GB) of RAM. When I install it, I just get a buzzing sound, it sounds kind of like a low-pitch version of a truck backing up sound. The power light lights up, but the monitor shows nothing. The monitor button also changes from green to orange. It might be the new RAM, because when I plug in the old ones it still works. Please get back to me asap. Thanks

Hi there..... check to see if your machine supports the type of ram you bought.....ie, ECC or non ECC and if it is the same speed like PC2100....some speed families will clock up or down to allow slight differences but not always.....and in some cases you may just have defective RAM! Hope this helps.

Have a look at this thread http://www.fixya.com/support/t136790-dell_e510_memory and see if any of that helps you - are you sure that you have exactly the right type of ram? - jut because it fits the slots doesn't mean it is supported by the platform. hope this helps:)

Just bought it. quiet for 2 hrs then an inconsistent scratching, buzzing scraping kind of sound that we CAN't sleep through. compressor is working fine and so is fan. HELP??!!


Might have something loose or broken and is hitting the fan inside. If it is a slushing sound, that is the water being slung back up unto the fan blade and condensor coil to cool the inside of the unit.

I have a motherboard called d102ggc2 with max 2 GB capacity. I recently tried upgrading from 1 GB ram to 2 GB ram by adding another 1 GB stick. The problem is that both the sticks are not working together...


Sounds like the second RAM stick was placed in the wrong slot. I would suggest checking your motherboard manual to determine this. Some motherboard designs have unusual slot arrangements.

How to install saound card for NEC versa E6200 for


Hi,

First off that notebook is not Windows 7 capable. Here are the WIndows 7 requirements:
  • 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
  • 1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
  • 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
  • DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver.
But, if you want to add a PCMCIA Sound Card you can do that. Just google PCMCIA Sound Card and you'll find a ton that are available.
I might suggest a new laptop.

Thanks Mark

Laptop shows only 4gb ram & 300 gb hdd


This is the limitation of a 32 bit (x86) Operating System. A 32 bit OS can detect upto 3GB RAM only.

You may either try installing the x64 Bit of XP Operating System or Vista Service Pack 1 or 2 for 32 bit Vista Operation System to resolve the issue.

After installing the SP 1 or 2 of the Vista OS in the Computer, the OS will detect 4GB RAM.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2 rams nt working simultaneously


Are they exactly the same brand and model? Sometimes they dont like to mix and match. Say you have the Left and right ram slot. Does each single stick work alone in the left and the right slot? Sounds like you may have a dead ram slot.. :(

System Requirements


With your Extensa you should be fine with the video and sound cards, as long as yours meets the 2ghz + 1g RAM, you shouldn't have any problems with the game. If you are, try updating to the latest sound and video drivers. Also, if you're sitting on 1g of RAM now, you might consider bumping it up to 2g. This will help it run smoother and avoid crashing during a gaming session.
