Memory compatibility with Inspiron 560?

Jump to solution

Hi,

Are G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) (F3-8500CL7D-8GBRL) compatible with Inspiron 560?

Based on the recommendation in  http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/desktop/f/3514/t/19524134.aspx, I bought these, but I get double beep error code, which corresponds to "No RAM". I've seated them correctly, so installation was not a problem.

Perhaps Inspiron 560 cannot house a 4GB rams?

4GB Kit (2x2GB) Memory RAM Upgrade for Dell Inspiron 560 (DDR3-1333MHz 240-pin DIMM)

It has 4 SLOTS AND 8 GIGS MAX RAM. MAX DIMM SIZE IS 2 GIGS NOT 4 OR 8.

MAX RAM IS 8 NOT 16 OR 32 GIGS.

Specific DDR3 1600 dimms work fine.

DDR3 1600 11-11-11-28  timing

You cannot use ECC or REGISTERED or buffered or QUAD rank high density ram.

DDR3 PC3-12800 • CL=11 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR3-1600 • 1.5V • 256Meg x 64 •
