steven42put the new mem in the slot that you already have mem in & put the origional in the empty slot,sometimes just putting them in different slots makes all the difference.Also is it branded memory?packard bell pc's can be a bit tempermental.

you could always try take out your old memory then put in just your new one it it works its ok if not take it bake to where u got it tell them its faulty.ps you do turn your pc of first before you try to install it dont you.

Maybe it's simply faulty. Did yu turn off the mains power before fiiting it? - not just simply by the normal means, but at the wall, or at a switch at the rear of the PSU - if there is one (a switch that is!)
