Compaq Presario Compatibility


Recommended Posts

I just purchased a Compaq Presario SR1610NX desktop, with an AMD Athlon

3200+ motherboard. then purchased a set of Corsair “Value Select” Ram for an upgrade. I got the Ram from NewEgg.com, it is listed as:


Item #N82E16830125440

D400 512MX VS1GBKIT400 184 PIN DDR Sdram Dual Channel


When I put the Ram it the computer would not boot up. The screen went black and showed a lot of indecipherable lettering. It then went to windows but said there was an error trying to start.


I have added Ram to computers and never had a problem. Is there a compatibility issue here ?
