Turn the stick around, if you see the little notch on the ram, and on the place to put it on the mb, you can see they should line up.

No, its just a matter of you not putting it in right. Did you accidently put it on a carpet or anything? All you do is push it in and the clips will click in , is that how you did it?

He said it wont clip in right, so im geussing that means that the notches are not lining up.

if you did manage to get it in backwards, you may want to check and make sure you didnt break anything in the process

Default Re: Ram...

Make sure that the two notches are lined up on the motherboard and on the memory, take out the clip on the top, and then put a little pressure on the memory, it has to like snap in, and can sometimes be a bit tough, make sure you ground yourself so you dont fry nothin, and once it snaps in, Then put the clips on.

EDIT: the problem sounds like one end of the stick just isnt in the slot enough, just go ahead and put alittle pressure on the side that wont go in and it should pop in, even if the clip wont go on, your MB should still read the mem.

dude, if you said you had it in already and just took it out for a second, then it is ok, like i said, as long as you have already had them in, then try putting more pressure on the bottom to snap it in, if its fried, then its fried, you live and you learn. Fryed means unusable, bus' are obliterated.

No, it wouldnt fry from just switching your computer on, it will fry if its been on carpet though, that goes for any computer component.

Maybe you should take it into a repair shop, just to make sure you are doing it safely, and correctly. It sounds as if you havent really built before, and you may lack knowledge in that sort of area.

We all need to start somewhere..

Well then it will fit, and unless you REALLY messed up your motherboard, which you couldnt have, because you comp would most likely not run. Like i said, A. Put more pressure on it,(it can sometimes take ALOT of pressure) and snap the two clips on at the same time B. Let someone do it who has done it before.

If your really that worried, leave it to a professional to do it for you, better them screw it up than you jk jk, if you did ruin something, you really wouldnt have to worry about it, if you computer boots and runs, then your fine, that would mean you still have one slot available for memory, and you can get single 1 gb sticks that would fit your comp, dont stress it dude!
