What happens if you accidentally install DDRII SDRAM with a DDR SDRAM? After taking back out the DDRII SDRAM, the computer will not boot at all. This is a Dell Inspirion 3000. When plugging the power cord back in, it immediately tries to power up. The left front panel light turns orange instead of green and you can hear the fan operating. The CD and DVD lights flicker on as usual. To turn off you have to hold the power button in for several seconds. Is the board or the CPU fried? Please help!!!

Hello,

Check all the connections on the MB.

Make sure the original RAM is properly seated in the socket.

Reseat all cards in the system.

Check the LED lights in the back (if present will be A,B,C,D)

DDR2 will not lock into the DDR slot. Check the RAM slot for pin damage.
