Upgrading ram on laptop, new ram not recognized.

\015 Upgrading ram on Dell Inspiration 1100 laptop. New ram not recognized. Latest dell bios installed (V32) before 512x2 ram installed. Used Crucial memory scan to verify max upgrade I could install. With new ram chips (Crucial,512mb,333hhz,pc2700,ddr, 2 chips) installed, computer will not boot, just two flashing indicator lights at the top of the keyboard. Any ideas?\015

Answers :

Remove the bios battery for a few seconds...and place it back on ...this will make it see the new ram memory modules...if you are sure they are compatible ..they will work .....in fact ..the ddr1 333 512 M is more that compatible with your system and it will work after you remove the battery ...\\ my recommendation is to reinstall a clean operation system after you boot up ...and format the C partition too...this have to be done after memory changes to get the max out of them ..
Remove one of the two sticks, and start it up.

\015\012Remove the one remaining stick, and insert the "other" new stick, and start it up.
\015\012
\015\012Put one stick of "old" RAM back into the computer, and start it up.
\015\012
\015\012If it does not work with the "old" RAM, you have a _real_ problem,
\015\012and should take the computer to a qualified technician for trouble-shooting.
