Dell Inspiron 570 RAM memory upgrade problem
Insprion 570 mATX desktop
64 bit windows 10
4 DIMM slots (2GB max each)
Trying to go from 4 to 5 GB
I currently have two 2GB 240p PC3-10600 CL9 16c 128x8 DDR3-1333 2Rx8 1.5V UDIMM RFB
|EBJ21UE8BDF0-DJ-F CJI 2GB 240p PC3-10600 CL9 16c 128x8 DDR3-1333 2Rx8 1.5V UDIMM RFB, Elpida|
Current setup, everything fine
DIMM 4 2GB EPBJ21UE8BDF0-DJ-F
DIMM 2 2GB EPBJ21UE8BDF0-DJ-F
I acquired a KVR1333D3N9K3/3G Kingston 1GB DDR3 1Rx8 PC3-10600U
DIMM 1 damaged and unusable clip and two connector teeth missing
I tried the new RAM module in empty DIMM 3 but PC failed to boot
just blue light.
The new RAM module is functioning on own with the original RAM removed and NEW added PC boots correctly and module passing all diagnostics
f The service manual says
Dell™ Inspiron™ 560/570 Service Manual
Recommended Memory Configuration see page 27
one RAM module = DIMM 4
two RAM module = DIMM 4 and 3
three RAM module = DIMM 4 ,3,2
Is the service manual wrong?
Why won't PC recognize the new ram module and BOOT is slot 3 ?
You have to install in pairs. If one socket is bad you will NOT be able to add ram.
Thanks for reply
Thats not what p27 of Dell™ Inspiron™ 560/570 Service Manual says.
also from the dell inspiron 560/570 comprehensive specifications
require a 64-bit operating system
Ok, thanks , i Will Check that upgrade tool in future, but the service manual p27 still says you can install
3 modules? Is that another error?
I am going threw up old posts on this forum there is definitely dells 570 with 3 ram modules in them working.
Are you sure you installed the new RAM is in the right slots? According to the manual (page 27), 3 sticks of RAM installed in the 570 should be in slots 4, 3, and 2 with slot 1 empty. Slot 1 is the slot closest to the CPU.
The white ears are the 1st bank
The black ears are the 2nd bank
You have damaged socket in 1st chip of 2nd bank.
This is never going to work ever.
When you install 2 they MUST Match.
The 3rd MUST GO in the 3rd Socket.
White Ears is 1st bank. #3 is 1st chip in 2nd bank.
The table below is referring to chips as though it goes 1 2 3 4
not 1 then 3 then 2 then 4. WHITE EARS BANK 1
BLACK EARS BANK 2. A = 1 and 3 B=2 and 4
Back again. was away.
Thats not correct diagram for a 570 see page 28 of service manual.
leaving this to one side
Here are results of single RAM module test
not possible visually damaged DIMM slot DIMM1
No boot DMM3
Does this mean DIMM3 slot is defective if a solitaire RAM module in it will not boot machine?
