New memory; not working!


Recommended Posts

So I just received the RAM I ordered for my wife's computer. I put it in and got "system failed memory test" voice and then nothing else happens.


She's got my old alienware area-51 with an ASUS A7N8X deluxe mobo. Currently, it has 2x Corsair XMS 512mb sticks (pc3200 DDR). The RAM I ordered is the value select 1gb pc3200 ddr (VS1GB400C3). I installed the new RAM into the 3rd slot on the mobo and got the error. I also removed the other 2 sticks and tried it in the first slot and got the same error.


I never changed any of the BIOS settings so it's all set to the original settings.


Is it a bad stick or do I need to change something in BIOS or...? :confused:
