We have a Dell Poweredge SC1425 which we're trying to upgrade to serve as an emergency backup, and having no luck finding memory that works with it. The 2gb that's in there works fine - it's when we try and replace it with new memory we hit problems.
First time around we used the Crucial Memory selector tool and got some DDR2 CL3 ECC PC2-5300 memory (4 x 2gb). Didn't work - Ram beep on start up - so we looked more closely at the Dell specs and got some PC2-3200 instead. Same problem. The old Ram still works when we put that back in.
We're a bit stumped. The last choice is to buy some Ram direct from Dell, but it's a lot more expensive (and we're not sure the server is really worth the expense - we could get a new basic server for not much more). But have we missed something?
Edit: yes, the ram we bought is dual rank.
