VS1GBKIT533D2 1GB (2x 512MB) and DELL 8400


Recommended Posts


im not a computer guy and those kind of stuff. the only thing i know is that the model of ram that i bought VS1GBKIT533D2 1GB (2x 512MB) does not work. the dell's memory is in slot 1 and 3 and the corsiar memory is in slot 2 and 4. the dell's memory in pc2-3200. and it works fine when the corsair memory are out. (of course my system is DDR2)

i took out the dells memory and start the PC but the only thing i saw was sound and no screen.

can anybody help me out here.

i search the forum and i found similiar people but i didnt understand the response. i cant change the bios setting for RAM in dell PC's.!!!!!!:mad:

No i've checked my system.

it totallly support the ddr2 (240) pin memories up to 533 mghz(pc4200).

there is no problem with my slots either. i've checked all my slots and its working.

any other suggestion.

besides i've got mail and says you can send the parts back.

what do i put in the box? just the ram and its package???

Thank you

While the GENERAL specs are the same, there's more to compatibility than just the speed of the memory. That's why Corsair has the compatibility site that Ram Guy linked to.

They do not list Value Select memory, only System Select memory. Simply put, Dells are picky as hell when it comes to memory. Talk with whomever sold you the memory and see if you can exchange them with System Select memory, or other memory that is guaranteed to work with your computer.

What happens if you put just our working module by it self in the system? If it will post with that module then you can try replacing them, but I would not suggest mixin our modules with the modules that came with your system.

Please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part! Or *New* Tech Support Express” and we will be happy to replace them or it, please note that you are posting from the forum!
