Error Tones after installing DDR2

Recommended Posts

Hello RAMguys,

 

Help!

 

I just purchased 2-2GB(2X1GB) Kits of Corsair [VS1GB8667D2] DDR2 RAM.

I installed it into my Dell Precision Workstation 470 (see below) and it would not recognize the RAM. I plan to update the chipset drive and BIOS, but I may be able to save time with your help. Any suggestions? Are these the right kits for my Dell?

 

Also, I used the configurator and the Precision WorkStation 450/450n and 650/650n show up but the 470 does not. According to several sources the CORSAIR ValueSelect 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Desktop Memory is backwards compatible. So far no luck getting it to work.

 

Thank You for your help, FstRx7
