I tried to upgrade a Dell laptop with 2 2gb stick of ddr2 ram and it will not recognize the new memory which is the same speed and type. The Dell website states that the laptop is upgradeable to 4 gb. I also flashed the bios and chipset but still no luck, any ideas?

Sounds like flaky RAM or they're simply incompatible. Crucial's System Scanner will tell you the maximum capacity and exactly what memory it needs.
