I have a Dell Precision M70 which had 512 mb DDR2 memory and I put 2-1GB modules into it. Now it will not boot, only turns on some lights and then goes off. What is the problem? Do I need to update BIOS? It had 533 mhz. memory but I put in 667 mhz which is what Crucial's site said should be used when I used their diagnostic tool on this computer. I also planed on switching hard drives from 40 GB to 160 GBs. Will this also cause me troubles and will I also have to notify Microsoft of the switch to legally use the Dell XP installation disk with the COA on the machine? One other important question is that this system came to me with native spanish on it, I could not change it to english without re-installing. It also had a Spanish keyboard on it and will have to change to english. Will that cause further problems with Microsoft or the computer once english is installed?
Thanks for pointers!
