Thanks for the update  :thumbsup:

 

Can you post the brand and model name or number of the MB for us please.

 

BTW: Odd that the Ram is a different height yet has the same serial number but at least it works.

So only the two memory slots which is a pity  :(

 

As both sticks will work in one the one slot it may suggest that the other slot is bad.

 

Try each stick on it`s own in the slot that is not normally used and let us know what happens.

That is both good and bad news, good that the memory slots are ok but bad that the two 2GB will not work together for whatever reason.

 

There is a way of checking that both sticks are the same spec, it involves a bit of swapping and changing so let us know if you want to do the checks.

that's what i want to say  "the two 2GB will not work together for whatever reason."

one thing i guess that the MB has maximum capacity of 4gb so that it become out of control at full capacity

Not likely but possible if the board is temperamental, have you tried removing the MBs CMOS battery to restore the factory default settings.

 

Do the following for each 2GB stick of Ram that you have

 

Download CPU-Z from here run it, click on the Memory tab, grab a screenshot and attach it to your next reply for us, please only use the method below for the screenshot.

 

To capture and post a screenshot;

 

Click on the ALT key + PRT SCR key..its on the top row..right hand side..now click on start...all programs...accessories...paint....left click in the white area ...press CTRL + V...click on file...click on save...save it to your desktop...name it something related to the screen your capturing... BE SURE TO SAVE IT AS A .JPG ...otherwise it may be to big to upload... then after typing in any response you have... click on browse...desktop...find the screenshot..select it and click on the upload button...then on the lower left...after it says upload successful...click on add reply like you normally would.

 

Screenshot instructions are provided to assist those that may read this topic but are not yet aware of the “how to”.
