  1. dell 4600C computer NOT WORKING HELP

    i have a dell 4600c computer thats not working
    i thought i could put the memory in that computer into my dell 4700 but after i tried it it wouldnt fit so then i figure out that my 4600c has ddr ram and my 4700 has ddr2 ram and so i put the ram back in my 4600c and its not working anymore

    it powers on and starts beeping and on the power button and amber light shows up instead of the usual green light

    i was wondering if i can fix this or is my computer shot or can i buy new memory or a new motherboard

    if you could help me i would appreciate it

    Did you damage your RAM? DDR is easily damaged, especially when trying to put into a slot it doesn't belong.

    Record the beep codes (ie short short short long) and try to look on the Dell support site for beep codes.
