  1. Hi everyone,

    My problem is with a dell 2350 with XP and it has a Bluford motherboard.

    It had (2) 128Mg sticks of pc2100 Ram, I inadvertantly installed (1) 128Mg stick of pc2100 and (1) 256Mg stick of pc2700.
    My son turned it on, check disk came up and showed it had 384Mg's of Ram and asked to continue, he clicked ok. Windows loaded, at the User screen he clicked on his name but couldn't type the password, "number lock" lights were lit on the keyboard showing power. Without being able to type the password he turned the machine off.
    Powering it up again a few minutes later the power light comes on, fans turn on, light on the motherboard lights but it doesn't boot.

    I've swapped back to the (2) 128Mg pc2100 memorysticks, checked all plug connections and it still won't boot.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance,
