i've just bought some extra ram for my dell optiplex 780 (DT), which is Dual Channel DDR3 Corsair Value Select, 2 x 2 Go, PC3-10600, CAS 9
once inserted, (tried with swapping modules - just one and swapping banks) no way to boot, just an awful sound from the buzzer ^^
question : are this ram modules compatible with this computer ?
btw, i found out that 'it should be' according to the kingston site (on which you select your computer and it tells you what modules are for you ^^)
Welcome to Dell Community.
Your Dell Optiplex 780 does support DDR3 memory but the maximum memory speed it supports is 1067MHz (PC2-8500). The memory modules which you have purchased have memory speed of 1333MHz and unfortunately they are not compatible with your computer.
Please contact the vendor for getting the memory modules replaced with 1067MHz modules.
If you have any further questions feel free to reply.

Thanks for your reply.
So now i know what to do : get some new ram modules ^^
Again thanks for your advice.
Have a good day
As our friend Claude, I bought a 4GB DDR3 1333MHz, and not worked. But as I see on the technical guidebox below, this should be possible.
