Dell Dimesion 4600-Yellow light after I added memory

\015 Hi-I added memory to an old Dell and now a "yellow" light comes on when I power it up----It will not come on at all...any ideas?? Thanks!!! David\015

Answers :

Take out the newly installed stick and see if it comes on.  if it does, find out if the memory and motherboard are compatible.  if your computer no longer boots even with the new stick taken out, you probably already burned your motherboard and the damage is irreversible.  it can also be a bad stick that you installed.
