Where is the problem?


Recommended Posts

Hi there i hope to get some help.

I recently purchased a Corsair VS256SDS266 2100/266Mhz 200pin 256Mb SO-DIMM RAM for my Dell Inspiron 5100. I get a black screen and 4 beeps on installing the new ram- installing either by itself or in combo with my 128mb ram. I have the num lock and scroll lock leds' blinking. suggestions? help me???

Thanx for replying.

I tried the ram by itself, in both slots, and also in combination with my other rams (2x128MB).

When it is installed in either of the combinations- the laptop beeps and i have the fan of the laptop on and the num and scroll lock blinking. Blank screen. can't enter the bios with the new ram.


In your opinion is it the compatibility or the product.


Thanx again,
