Hi
I put new ram in my dell e521 and it went mad.
Beeping not loading up etc.
How many ram slots do you have.
2 or 4 have you put the ram in the right 2 slots if you have 4 slots.
Also take it out and put back in again if all else fails check it clicks in.
This should be a loud hard click into place.

Hi, thanks but i have tried above, double checked the slots etc but not luck
#3
try 2 first in the correct slots a1 + b1

memtest86 may be worth a try
#5
are they all the same type, clock speed, make, latency etc of RAM?
#6
salimsd can you give us more information on the 3 sticks of memory?
#7
Yes they are OCZ 3x1GB 1333mhz DDR3 (bought from Ebay) installed in slot 1-3-5
#8
can you check the serial numbers online to make sure they aren't from a bad batch?

#11
are you sure that the BIOS not recognising the RAM, its strange that Windows can, although what is the prog you are using that show you using 1GB?
#12

bump!!!!!!!!

Have you tried slot 2/4/6?

Also are your running a 64bit OS?

Despite the motherboard not reading it correctly, if it is showing in Windows I am assuming it must be working fine. The only time I have seen Windows report "blah blah usable" which is less than what is actually there is when your hitting the cap limit on 32bit (3.2GB-ish inc. vram). So I am assuming you have crossfire/sli with 2x1gb graphics cards?

Anyone
#17
yes, i am putting in correct slot 1-3-5...and when i try 2-4-6 does not start just beep sound.
#18
Operating System, is it 64 or 32bit?
#19
W7 64bit
