I removed the old memory and installed 4 1GB cards and the computer doesn't work? Help.


Answers :

Adding new memory can be tricky. First the new memory has to be compatible with the motherboard.
\015\012By that I mean, you need to know how much memory the motherboard can max out at.Can it take only 2 GB or 4GB etc. And it has to be a match to what memory speed your motherboard can handle. If your motherboard takes DDR than you must put DDR in, if it takes DDR2 than you must put DDR2 in. Look at the old memory, and try to match all the numbers you find on it. Than look up the memory specs for the motherboard to find out how much it can take.
\015\012Any computer will not operate corecctly if the memory is the wrong kind, or installed wrong.
