I just installed two sticks of Micron Crucial 512mb DDR 266 pc2100 cl2.5 memory for a gig in my 2350 dimension 2.0 Celeron. I had a gig of non-matching memory (two sticks 512MB) and occasionally would get the blue screen of death when the puter was doing some heavy lifting. Ran the microsoft memory check and got failure, failure, failure so decided to ugrade. Now, when the new sticks are in, no beeps, get power to the mobo and hd but does not boot or give error message. nada, nothing, zip...double checked memory specs, tried one stick at a time alternating, changed slots, nada, zip. Put old memory back in and we are up and typing at ya...thoughts?

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. It may be that the ram you tried is not compatible with your motherboard. If you tried it and it didn't work, then one stick at a time and it didn't work, then put the old stuff back and it did work that would be my conclustion. I suggest trying to get your money back, or exhange for another brand.

Thanks, I tried to verify all the correct data on the ram before buying it and the how can one go wrong in compatibility when it is non-ecc and sdramm?
