first off it's not usually a good idea to reply to your own topic. Just slows down the chances that a staffer will get to it. They usually look for the topics that no one is helping in. If there are replys, chances are someone is already working on your issue. Second, who made your computer and who made your RAM? There have been instances of hardware conflicts or problems when running different "brands" (for lack of a better term). Once I know that there is a chance I could figure out the problem for ya. :tazz:

Hi

As cjh1221 said, we need to know the system specs & ram specs - in particular the make & model of motherboard & the new & old ram specs.

When you installed the new ram, did you add it to the existing ram or replace it entirely?

Did you get any beeps when you powered the system on?

Also, if you remove the new ram & just use the old stuff, does the system still work? If so, download & run everest :

This will give you the motherboard info & memory specs that I asked for, in case you don't already know them.

Also check to see if the RAM is pushed in all the way or not. The RAM speeds must also match up alot of times. The specs of the exact type of RAM you will need can either be found in the motherboard book if you have one, or on the motherboard manufacturers web site.
