    It should work fine with that computer. Try booting the machine with just the new stick of memory installed. If it doesn't work it is most likely a bad stick of memory. There may also be a problem with the memory slot on the motherboard that you tried. Try it in different slots. How many memory slots are on that board? I'm guessing four possibly. Also be careful installing the memory, make sure the machine is unplugged and dissipate all the stored energy in the machine by hitting the power button after it is unplugged. I only mention this because I have fried memory by forgetting this.
