Are you sure the bottom of the RAM matches the notch that's on the memory slot of the motherboard? Make sure you push down with even pressure on both ends of the memory module until you see those white lever click into place of the memory stick.

Yeah, pusing really hard but it's not doing anything.

That motherboard takes 240 pin DDR2 memory. Make sure you're not trying to install 184 pin DDR.

Man, that would suck if it was that problem. I never used DDR2 before but don't they have almost the same layout as DDR1 (with the exception of more pins)?
