I have a Dell Dimension 4600. There are 4 (2 banks of 2) RAM slots.
According to Crucial: http://www.crucial.com/store/listpar...mension%204600
- each slot can handle 1GB, therefore a max of 4GB of RAM.
- uses pc3200
- non ecc
I currently have 2 sticks of 256MB PC3200 Non-ECC RAM. I purchased 2 sticks of 1GB PC3200 Non-ECC RAM. I removed the 2 256MB sticks and inserted the 2 1GB sticks in the same slots (same bank). When I power up the PC I get 6 beeps during the POST test. I have reinserted them a few times to make sure they were inserted correctly.
I cannot see why the PC won't recognise the new RAM. The frequencies are definitely the same and the new RAM is definitely non-ECC. Please help!!
