Dell Precision Workstation 530 Ram Problem

by Larry - Cleveland / March 15, 2013 9:05 AM PDT

I have a Dell Precision Workstation 530, yes the big old one with dule Xeon's. I am having problem adding more ram. I purchased the two expantion boards, and read the install manual (ok after it did not work). I tested all the ram on the main system board and it works fine. I know slot 1 is on one board and slot 2 is on the second board. I have tested it will all 4 megs and all the way down to 1 meg.

It will not boot up. It beeps then nothing. I did not see any bios settings to change. I was told this is the proper ram for the expantion cards.

Can some one help?
