Default Re: New RAM - cant boot PC

You tried switching that 1 stick with the other stick to see? I guess you would have tried that anyway, but worth a try.

Plus, the computer wouldn't with no RAM since its vital for it to post.

Hmm... try putting just the old RAM in, does it boot then?

if so, then its something to do with the new chips that it doesn't like. Are you sure they are the same speed?

But if it doesn't work still, then somethings unplugged or been made loose so just push those cables in further on anything you can find to make sure

EDIT: Nuke...now that is stupid


...I mean, as if anyone will have a sledgehammer lying around in the house...

Im using the 2 old sticks right now.

And ive tried all 4 at once, just the 2 new, 1 of the new ones, 1 new, 2 old, etc. whenever a new one is in, i get beeps and no screen, or no beeps and no screen.
