You are right, this is in fact a memory error and you must reseat your memory. Try one a time and also consider trying them in different slots because it may be a trouble sourcing from one of the slots.

The following link will be of great help to you.

Take care.
I have done that three times no change. they click in the slots nicely. the ram under the key board is the default ram slot. i removed slot 2 first but no change. I have a after market power cord could that be the wrong cord? do i need a dell power cord? my battery has died also. meaning doesn't charge anymore.

also in pc's don't they have a little battery in them and when they lose charge the pc wont start up. do laptops have the same battery?

is there a dell shop in brisbane cbd. i live 10mins walk from the city.

There may be a possibility that you need to have a new power cable then. You will easily obtain an adapter from the following online shopping link.

Nevertheless, I will advise to bring the laptop to a repair shop for confirmation that it is indeed the power cable which needs to be replaced because the power supply or battery also is of concern.

Kind regards.
