Turns out the mobo can only take pc2100. I took out the 3200 and kept the other one in. But Im still having the same problem. Could my memory be shot? Or do you think there is some other problem.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Was it working at one time? Did it stop working after you added the memory? If you can successfully boot to the BIOS then it is not the memory, unless you are trying to overclock the memory.
We need more information before we can continue.
