Having problems with your Dell PC Laptops ?

I added more memory to my vista

\015 I added more memory to my microsoft vista 1501 and i don't see the change in my memory?\015

Answers :

Has the BIOS detected the additional memory or it has stayed the same?
\015\012Is the new RAM the same make as the other RAM module and speed?
\015\012
\015\012To determine if the new RAM is OK, remove both RAM modules and insert only the new RAM module and see if the laptop boots up.
\015\012If it doesn't boot up then the RAM module is either faulty or incompatible with your laptop.
\015\012If it boots up then insert the other RAM module in the second memory slot. Check the BIOS to see if the RAM has increased. If not then the RAM modules are incompatible with each other. I suggest you look at the make of the original RAM module and purchase the second one from the same manufacturer.
