Default Memory Upgrade Problem

Ok, first I apologize. I tried to put this thread in the RAM section but it wouldnt let me for some reason. I also tried running a search but I didnt see anything about this specific problem.

I have an HP Pavillion 7940 pc. It only has 128mb of RAM and so I purchased 2 sticks of 256mb RAM from a buddy of mine from one of the many HP computers he has.

Problem is when I install the RAM in the computer it beeps at me during POST which indicates that its not finding it. And when I install one of the 256mb sticks with the original 128 one the computer will start up, but will only find the 128mb one.

I've already gone to the HP website and downloaded the most recent BIOS update and installed it. I also checked a couple of other computer forums and it seems like this is a fairly common problem for my computer model.

The most recent posts I was able to find dated back to 2003. After that I cant find much mention of the problem. And anyone that did fix their problem never posted back to explain what they did.

Any ideas?
