Ok i have a asrock alive nf6p-vista motherboard, it has 1 stick of 2gb ddr2 800mhz memory, when i stick the second stick of memory in the pc turns on, but nuthing on the screen. When i remove the stick all is fine again, if i put the 2gb stick in the second slot and remove the one from the first slot the pc turns on and displays nuthing on the scree, and sugestions, its relitivly new, bought in march 2008.
Just peeked at manual and above spec is correct, 2 slots only on the board. You dont say if you have tried the new stick in slot1 on its own. Suggest you try that and if no joy then would return the stick for replacement. Any beeps when you switch on?
em there isnt any setting in the bios, its a rather shit basic bios, it only has 2 slots yes, if the new mem stick is in slot 1, the pc boots beeps and is on its way, but if i stick the new one in slot 2 the pc turns on dosent beep and does sweet fa. The memory is compatable and machiene is capable for 4gbs, and support 800mhz
