new memory problem

  brettly01 16:01 18 Dec 2005

i have a asrock m/board with a sempron 3000 64bit cpu, it has 512mb 400ddr memory card on it but when i go to upgrade to 2 512mb 4ddr cards the pc won't boot, can't even get into the bios.

any ideas.

Try one stick of memory at a time.

This wil prove if they are both working.

Use the same socket for the each test.

thanks for the reply fingees,
i tried that and also used the same socket as the one that is working but the new one still never worked, even took the new card to pcworld and exchanged it for another one but still no good.

That would suggest to me that the new memory is not compatable with your computer, even though you thought it was.

I've alwayys used memory from crucible, as on their website you enter your motherboard make, and it shows comatable memory. Also their's has a lifetime guarantee.

I would suggest you obtain a refund, or take your original memory with you and ask them to guarantee a match.

Sorry I haven'been a great help
