Right-click MY COMPUTER, then click Properties - Hardware - Device Manager.

What's currently listed there with a ? or ! next to it?

What's the 7-character service tag number on the sticker of that Dell?

In post #7 you say you took out the RAM and then it says you are missing 1GB of RAM. I feel silly asking, but did you put the RAM back in? If so and it continues to show a missing GB then I suggest you unplug the pc, pop the RAM out again and put it back in. You need to make sure the notch lines up perfectly. You need to press VERY firmly. You should hear 2 snapping sounds of both ends locking in.
As for the driver, what knucklehead posted In #9 is correct. Just put in your service tag number and the website will direct you to the correct drivers.

Good luck!

You said you put it in upside down. I'm not sure how that would be possible. I believe you may have damged the slot that it is in. How many RAM slots does it have? Most Dells now have 4 but older models have 2. If you have 4 try putting the RAM in another slot. As I said before line up the slot and press firmly but carefully listening for 2 clicks.
What model Dell do you have (example: optiplex 755 or 380, dimension 240, etc...)?
