try the ram in the other 1750...if they work then you have serious problems with the first 1750 and you will have to take it to a shop because its a hardware issue

in the worst case scenario...you have parts on the non working computer to cannibalize for the working system...

and the other may be fixable but you will have to take it to a shop
