Did you take anti-static precautions when fitting it? It is very important to do this, because you can damage the ram from the static electricity from your body.

I am not saying this is what has happened, but just in case so you know for next time
Thanks for the reply,

-The Mini is giving me an error code that indicates: "No RAM installed"
-The Dell PC is giving me an error code that indicates: "DRAM Refresh Error"

I don't have a wristband, but I discharged myself on the chassis before I touched it and made sure only to handle the module by the edges. It was, however, shipped in a heat-sealed plastic bag inside a padded envelope. I'm wondering if that has something to do with it.

I emailed the seller, so i'll see what he says about returning vs replacements.
