Unhappy Why doesn't my computer like the 1gb memory card

I have a Compaq Evo D500 Convertible Minitower with a Pentium 4 2.4GHz processor. I got a 1gb ELPIDA EBD10RD4ADFA-7B ddr ecc memory chip to put into the computer to speed it us a little bit but when I put the memory chip in the computer just beeps and does nothing. Is there anything I can do to make the computer acept the memory chip?

Nope your PC doesn't support it. I bet chances are is because its ECC try getting nonecc. Its cheaper as well.

ECC will turn itself off if a non ECC is detected, thats how it works with RDRAM not sure about DDR/DDR2 ram.

RDRAM is one of the greates RAM to have.

For DDR ECC, I'm not sure, but it could be that ECC is not supported. I should try some ECC on my PCs...

Anyways, The PCs taking ECC registered RAM would be servers.

Error Corrctiing code is a really intelligent flag in RAM and some PCs with non supported ECC might not want it.
Btin theory, it would just not be available.

Actually, if RAM isn't Dual Channel, and the mobo is, the motherboard will actually run as Dual Channel, no matter what RAM is in.

I did not pay much for the memory and will problely just sell it if I can not use it.

RDRAM is the greatest ram to have?!? Why would you say that? Its so expensive for so little.
