I am sorry for the issues that you have been experiencing with your new RAM. How much RAM is found when you use our System Scanner. This scanner can be found here. If a module is missing (scanner shows empty slot), it's likely an installation issue.If the modules are half detected by the scanner, it could be a density issue. Please check the scanner and let us know and we can see what other troubleshooting we may be able to try.
I am sorry for the issues that you are experiencing with your memory modules. I pulled up your system and it appears that these memory modules are compatible with your system. At this point I would test each stick individually to see if it just one defective stick. You may even try running each stick individually in the system to see if the error occurs. Please contact us directly, using the information in my signature, if you are still experiencing issues.
Dell have stated (as does Crucial) that the Dell Dimension 9200 XPS 410 (which are bascially the same) only takes 4 x 1GB modules; a maximum of 4GB)
I have read on many forums that 4 x 2GB wsill work. So I purchesd 4 x 3GB mamory modules from Crucial and they worked pefectly.
Ran my PC all weekend (48hours) with 8GB without a glitch and a good performance increase.
my scan shows that my PC has a 1Gb and a 1mb memory modules installed. Also that it has a memory limit of 8192MB. Does this mean I cannot install, for example a 1GB module. Ideally I would install two 2gb modules at least. Any help with my options here would be helpful.
