RAM upgrade gone wrong

By vzaangel ·
Hello,I have a dell demension 4550 It had 512mb of ram I went to upgrade it and put in a 1GB stick too that I got from crucial. Well after trying it several times now the monitor isint reading Theres nothing but a blank screen and the light on the monitor is orange like the computer is off. I tried a different graphics card thinking maybe it went out but it did the same thing. I also tried 2 other monitors on it. I also tried running it with just the old ram and just the new stick and same blank screen. Can anyone please help me? Could the ram i put in have hurt the system board? I cant even get a monitor to work on it at all so I cant get into the bios or anything. I also tried resetting the jumper and taking out the battery and nothing Thank you.

Wrong RAM

by jgrommersch In reply to RAM upgrade gone wrong

I am wondering if you have tried to install the old stick of RAM again. It is possible that you have gotten a bad stick or that something there is not compatible. I would start there and let me know if that works. If it does I would look with going to Cosair for RAM. let me know if that works.

According to this site, the maximum memory for your machine is 1GB.

Memory is always best installed in pairs (matching wherever possible).
