I am really stuck with this problem. I have a Inspiron 6000 that had 2x512Mb of memory in it. I bought 2 matching 1Gb sticks to upgrade it to 2Gb.
I Installed the latest bios and it booted fine but when I try and install the new memory it won't boot, I just get the flashing num lock light then nothing.
I have made sure i am installing the modules all the way into the slots, tryed booting without drives installed and other tips that i have found on forums but nothing has helped. The laptop will boot with 2 matching 512 sticks, either of ther new 1Gb sticks or one of each giving me a mismatched 1.5Gb but will refuse to boot with 2Gb. I have tried installing 1.5 and getting the bios to update then installing the other stick but nothing has helped.
Is my computer a freak that has a ram limit of 1.5 or am i missing something?
