I bought this the other day because I was told it is compatible to my laptop,

But today when I opened it up, my 512 mb memory in there read; "512 Mb 2Rx16 Pc2-5300S - 555"

Why is it not working?

I tried the new memory on it's own and a box keeps flashing (the one with a lock with a arrow pointing down)

+ 1, just use something like Crucial's RAM finder, its pretty accurate actually.

Okay, well I will do that but another question. Which side should be facing up?

I know there is a little break or slit at the bottom but if the logo is on top it will not work. I know I am making no sense. But is it possible it FITS but will not work? or can I turn it backwards and will it work?

The RAM only fits one way.

What Dell laptop do you have? Is it the Inspiron 1525?
