Answers :

Hello,
Try installing one module only. (You may have to try in first slot, and then if it does not work, in the second slot.) If the 1gb module is recognized install the second one.
If all else fails, the modules may be incompatible with your motherboard, or 1gb exceeds the capacity of the slot.

Hope it helps
