Dell Dim 4300s ram upgrade

By ksgmitchell ·
I upgraded the ram on my Dell Dim 4300s from 133mhz to 1gb (2 512mb). When I turn the PC on all it does is beep and the monitor shows no signal.Software is windows XP

I think it beeps 3 or 4 times then repeats

Thanks 4 for help, This is the PC my special ed students use

The manual claims you can use a 512MB (133MHz) module, two slots available, but a max of 512MB.
Try removing one module (also verify that the other is in the slot properly.
The beep code indicates memory problem.

That PC can only take 512, not 1 gig

So it should work fine with one memory stick.

Memory capacities
64-, 128-, 256-, and 512-MB non-ECC or ECC SDRAM

Maximum memory
512 MB

Memory type
PC133 (non-ECC or ECC)

1 gig with 4300S

I don't know how I ended up doing this or what made me think it would work, but I have 1gig of RAM in my 4300s and it has been running happily this way for a few years.
