I tried adding 2 different sticks of memory to the 8gigs already in the Inspiron 3650 I have and neither are recognized. This mobo has 2 slots. The first was a 2gig SK Hynix, the 2nd is a G Skill 4gig. Both have the same specs as the 8gig SK Hynix that came with this pc listed below. These are both used but verified working sticks. I tried booting each stick by itself but all I get is the power light flashing twice with no boot. What am I missing?
Thank you for writing to Dell Community Forum.
Memory modules type supported on Inspiron 3650 is DDR3L and the above 8 GB memory module is DDR3.
Please check with a DDR3L module and see if the system boots normally.
It Supports 2GB, 4GB and 8GB DIMMs, up to 16GB total.
