Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Added ram to dell e1405 for total of 2GB; however, computer seems to only see one GB; what would cause that?


Answers :

Try updating the BIOS. You can do this on the dell website.Make sure you used the correct modules.(1X1GB) PC24200 NONECC UNBUFFERED 200PIN DDR2 SODIMM
Be certain that you have the correct memory which is:
PC2-4200/5300 DDR2 SDRAM SODIMM

It's possible that one module of the memory is faulty or the slot is bad. Remove all the memory and add1 module at a time in the same slot to see if any changes.

Hope this helps.
