[QUOTE=DJ B;2004499]Hello all i recently bought a 1gb memory module for my dell dimension 1100 computer, so i took out my old memory and put the new memory in and it dident work… so i put the old one back in instead so i could figure it out later. But when i put my old one back in it stopped working. My computer i mean at all.
When i plug the power cable up, the fan automaticly turns on and the computer just makes a weird beeping noise and dosent turn on. Can this be simply fixed, I feared this would happen and it did. I hope i dint brake anything. please help me.
Just incase your wondering i wrote this thread on a friends laptop.
I am desperate.[/QUOTE]
Did you put the memory back in the same way you took them out?? Did you make sure they they were seated down the correct way?? How many beeps does it make ?? Those beeps are error indicators…As long as the memory stick old and new don’t have any chips or damage to them you should be ok but make sure your static free so you won’t zap the chips. You can remove any static touching the computer case with it off and plugged into the power outlet to remove any static. What kinda memory stick did you buy did you check with your owners manual and whom did you buy it from?
