Check the manual on what size memory is allowed in slots, also what slots these should go in first

em it can take 4gb of ddr2 533/677/800 so it should all be fine

sounds as if second slot is faulty, have you had a look at the memory settings in the BIOS?

yes but how should it go in the slots? is there only 2 slots?

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

The motherboard is clearly faulty, from the symptoms you have given.
