Faulty memory?

Recommended Posts

I have a Dell Inspiron 1100 with a Celeron 2.o ghz/ 400 FSB. It has 1 256MB DDR module. CPU-Z rates it at 132.9 MHZ. I tried to add a Corsair pc2700 512MB DDR module. When I started the computer, the screen displays nothing and my numlock and scrolllock lights blink constantly and the computer turns off in about 30 seconds. This happens with any configuration, only the new module, the new module in the 2nd or the 1st slot. Is this a bad memory module or is there some incompatability? Thanks.

The reason I tried the PC2700 was because Dell's website said it would work. I first checked Dell's website with the service code for my laptop for memory upgrades. It only offered a 512MB PC2700 module. It had note saying that even though it wasn't PC 2100, if it was listed on the website, it would work with my machine. I bought the memory from Corsair because it was less than half the cost of Dell's. Even with just the Corsair module in the machine, it will not POST.
