Yea, I would make sure you have the correct type of ram. Check the voltages and timings from the manufacturer and make sure they match in the bios.

It would help if you posted ur comp specs as well as the ram specs.

Download Belarc Advisor[ http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html ] and it will tell you what it is. Most likely your motherboard can't support it for a number of reasons.
