rphitman Posted December 2, 2005 Share Posted December 2, 2005 I recently purchased a 2 x 1GB set of TwinX Matched Pair memory sticks from you guys but when i received them they do not function. I used the memory configuration tool that you have on the site. I know that the most common ram for my board is PC 2100 but with my current configuration i was running into situations where i was low on RAM (My system specs are listed below). Based on this tool i went to the bottom of the page and scrolled through the other compatible RAM options and found the set i later purchased (Label on RAM stick: CMX1024RE-3200). Problem Encountered: After receiving the RAM i removed the old stuff (2 x 512 pair) listed below and installed the new PC3200 stuff in the same slots figuring this would be the most likely place for it to function (I believe it is slots 1 & 2 I don’t remember off the top of my head). I then powered up the computer to receive nothing at all......and I do mean nothing. No beeps, no boot screen, just blackness and the sound of all my hardware. After X amount of time my monitor would just turn off and still no response. I then tried the ram in the other two slots (3 & 4 I believe) to no avail just the same result. I then removed the new RAM replaced the old and the system booted up as normal. Is this a compatibility problem, Dead RAM or is there some other thing i can check for you that i might have forgot.
