i have just bought some new ram and put it into my pc, but it hasnt worked, i get continous long beeps, the RAM i have is ddr333, but my motherboard supports ddr400, i read around the net and heard that ddr333 is compatible on ddr400 motherboards? was wondering if this is true and if anyone could help? when i put one stick in, it boots with no beeps, and the monitor dosent switch on.

my motherboard is a gogabyt GA-K8VM800M

MY PROCESSOR IS AMD sempron 2800+ (i think)

if any of that helps :)

Any help would be appreciated thanks :)

Try the new memory on its own and in each slot.
If it doesn't want to know in any slot but the board does work with the old memory you may have a faulty memory module. If you can, try it in another working computer.

i bought it from a company called the memory pro, on ebay, they have around 98% positive feedback so i bought it there. could updating my BIOS or something make it compatible?

Why would you want a new board that supports that memory? Just go to crucial.com or corsair.com and use their memory configurator and get the ram thats right for your gigabyt GA-K8VM800M
