Having problems tracing the RAM specified, Please check the specs again, there should be more on the stick unless the label is missing...KPR comes up as Notebook, SO Dimm.
If possible, a picture would be useful.

The subject seems a little muddled so we need to clear things up.
Post #1, you said,
"My motherboard is giving me a red light."
MB manual, standby power LED, green on, or off, Cannot find any ref, to a red light.
Q. Where is the red light??
"All this happened after I tried installing a new 1gb ram."
Q. Did you have the 2 sticks of G.Sklill installed?
Q. Which stick of ram did you add, the Kingston standard length, or the Kingston short one?
Q. Have you at any time tried installing the short DIMM?
Always install DIMMs of the same CAS latency.
Supports 1 DIMM inserted into any slot, runs as single sided.
Supports 2 DIMMs, 1 matching pair in slots 1& 2 OR 3 & 4, duel channel.
Supports 4 DIMMs, 2 matching pairs in all slots.
Does not support, 1 a pair in slots 1&2 OR 3 & 4 + a single DIMM installed in any other slot..
Post #5, Part of what you said.
"the stickers say they are ddr2-800 pc2-6400 1gbx2 (above that they say f2-6400cl5d-2gbnq) When it was working I had two of those installed as well as the Kingston.
Please clarify as this is different from Post #1. "
But that stick of ram has been in there working fine for over 2 years. The computer still won't run even without that stick now
Which computer please is this installed on?
