New corsair ram won't work!


Recommended Posts

I built my computer over a year ago and it has been running fine on the ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe Mobo with CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel RAM. I wanted to upgrade a little bit so I bought some CORSAIR 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel RAM to replace what I had. When I swapped out the old RAM for the new and booted up my PC, nothing happened. It turned on and all, the fans were going; but no response on the monitor. I put the old RAM back in and it worked fine. Is there some sort of compatibility issue I am unaware of? Or do I need to reset something else in order to get it to work?
