Can High Dens. RAM work w/ a Gigabyte Motherboard

I got suckered into buying some High Density RAM on E-Bay and was wondering if it's so important why isn't it better advertised? I mean I even checked on Crucial and it told me the RAM type and how much but even the Memory specialists didn't make an extra mention ANYWHERE that it only takes Low Density. But that's kind of important because now I have High Density and don't know how to make it work. Does anyone have any ideas on how or if I can make it work with a Gigabyte GA-8I915PM with an Intel 915P? I mean it has to work somehow or people would be better informed of the importance in the difference between the two densities wouldn't they? Any ideas? Thanks,
Dave

They usually show or register as half of what they spec out or advertised to be (i.e. bought a 1GB module and it only shows as 512MB), or they don't work at all. This is common on all size modules. DDR and standard SDRAM included.

If it's high density, it wont work. Send it back if you can. If you bought it from crucial for a few pennies more they would take it back no bother.

I'm afraid you got the info you needed on your other thread. If the RAM you bought is not compatible with your motherboard then it will not work and nothing you can do can make it work.

Send it back and buy the proper memory from Crucial.
