I have a Dell Dimension that has a Pentium 4 2.4 GHZ processor. I tried adding new RAM. The ram i took from my old computer doesnt seem to fit. They look almost the same. I believe they are both DIMMs. Any suggestions? The old computer is from 2000.
Sounds like your old computer at that age is a PC133 kind of ram. Whereas your new computer at 2.4ghz should need PC2100 or PC2700. Which of course is DDR266 and DDR333 respectively. They look similar I suppose but are complete different. The little dip in the slot part of the chip is also in 2 different locations.
