Could be a bad seat or you may have had a stick go bad entirely.

If there are two, try removing one, then swapping them and make sure they both work fine individually. Then try both again.

Need a 512mb or 1gb (184-pin) RAM stick
Hey SF, I'm in need of a RAM stick that will work for a Dell Dimension 2400. Anyone know where I could get a cheap stick? Or anyone have one they could part with? Prefer 1gb but beggers can't be choosers. Currently the DD2400 only has 256mb of RAM. :S Thanks, Steve
