Specs: Windows XP
I have a Dell Dimension, and tried to install 1GB Kingston memory. I put just one card back in with the 1GB to replace the two, 256 MB cards. Also tried with one 256 and one 1gb, etc. Nothing worked. There was a weird smell and now the computer has a black screen and beeps when turned on. I put in the old memory and does same thing. Took out video card and put back in, same thing. Now what can I do? All have 184 pins, both PC 3200. The other 256MB cards are Nayna.
