Well im looking to upgrade my memory ive currently got 2 sticks of 128mb ddr333 so 256mb on duel channels, but i think one is no good as my pc only registers 128mb i want to upgrade to 1gb of ram on each port i would also like to use a faster ram.
I went to crucials website to test my motherboard and see what was good for it and i was told that i could have what i wanted (speed and size) so ive got the stick, well actually i bought 2, 1gb sticks but i tried to put them in and my computer starts up and then the screen goes blank and it then makes some funny bleeping noises at me.
The pc sounds like its all working just no screen.
I have also tried using just one stick of 1gb ram and its to no joy same situation as above.

Is the new memory a lot different to what was in there, and does it still start if you put the old ones back in

maybe this is it, dimensions 4600 P4 3.0GHz/512k (533fsb) intergrated audio and nic with a 120gb hard drive and a nvidia fx 5200 card,
any of that make sense???
As for how different is the memory im trying to install it is nearly 4 times more capacity im trying to go from 256mb total to 1gb or 2gb if pos. ive tried running just 1gb that doesnt make any difference it still doesnt give me a screen just bleeps and a pc that sounds like its running.
If i then put the origional memory sticks back in it works fine screen and all.
