    Is it the proper type of ram for your station? Can the ports only handle up to 512 MB per bank?

    Right type ?

    Do you have a Motherboard manual to name ram types,slot size etc. ?
    If not get that info from the Website.You have to know what to use and
    what size for your board slots.
    You might damage things if you don't.:knock:
