From what I get out of the Dell manual, install the 8GB modules in the WHITE release lever slots.  Install the 4GB in the other two slots.

Many thanks for your FAST reply and help!  I am out of town or I would have tried sooner.  I am excited to try the recommended RAM setup as soon as I return.  

I scoured the manuals I have but didn't locate my specific issue ~ but I am thankful you did!

I greatly appreciate your time and effort.
