I have read numerous threads on what are some options and canted get sysyem to boot,numerous blue screen error messages. I ran PC utility from Dell and errorr code 2F2F:0419 showed on memory tests. Hard drive and other major tests checked out of. Also ran Seatools test on hard drive with passing tests results. I can access harddrive using a USB backup drive hooked to another PC. Also tried to use re-Installation CD to run recovery console and cant get Cd to read.

Memory as in RAM. As a double check try running Memtest86.

That motherboard has two expansion slots which will take a maximum of 1GB per slot, it uses PC 2700 or PC 3200. If you have PC 2700 installed and add the faster PC 3200 you need to be aware that the speed of the faster module will clock down to the slower module. Crucial has some of the more dependable modules on the market, I've seen too many post regarding problems with value RAM, I would spend the extra couple of dollars for the better module.

I have used ValuRAM in all my systems, and not one issue on any of them.
