Try updating the BIOS of the laptop with the working RAM
After this, try again with the Strontium RAM

At which speed is the Dell running the RAM? Upload the memory tab of CPU-Z as well (imgur is fine, this site doesn´t provide uploading files)

about bios i will see lenovo website for my laptop or is there any other way to update bios
 
If each module will only work on its own, there's just a conflict from two different designs--nothing you can really do about that. If the Dell module won't work in your laptop even on its own, that's just incompatibility.

Thank you for replying and both module dell and lenovo one works perfectly in dell laptop so i don't think they are incompatible.
