i recently bought a Samsung 1GB PC3400 DDR Ram memory 184pin 400 MHZ, i just got it today too. i opened up the computer, inserted the only left ram slot in my mobo ( only has 3 slots, 2 are taken by 512's). after that i started up the computer, i opened up my montior and nothing, i waited for 5 minutes and nothing. although my computers front red light (showing its loading something or what not) was on o-o.
so then i tried it again, still the same. i took out the 1gb ram, and booted up the computer, and it worked with out the new 1gb ram. i looked in my mobo manual and it supports:
" 3x 184-pin DDR DIMM sockets for up to 3GB unbuffered ECC and non-ECC PC3200/PC2700/PC2100 SDRAM memory " right out of the manual. and my mobo is a asus k8v-x.
any help? thanks
