Hi i have just bought 2 1xgb sticks for my e machine pc, 2700 CL2.5. But when i have installed the ram the system will not even boot up. but when i install my 256mb + 128mb it loads ok and boots. So i was wondering if my ram is not compatible to this pc. But according to the manual i can install 2 1gb sticks. The screen goes black, white writing and at the bottom says start in safemode. Any help on this matter b4 i send back the ram for a replacement.

2x 1gb sticks of what type of ram, does the board accept non parity ram or EEC. There are different flavours of Ram within the specifics of the various base segments.

Try click here and see what kind of ram they suggest for your machine and then compare it with the specs of the sticks you have gotten. It is most likely you have not matched like for like.
