New DDR Ram desktop wont boot?
Posted on 2005-05-05
Ok hopefully someone can help.
I have a desktop machine P4 3Gig running windows XP home with a firefox motherboard.
It is currently using 256mb PC400DDR ram, yesterday i bought another 256mb PC400DDR Ram.
When i slot on the new ram the PC will not boot at all, just a cursor flashing on a black screen.
I took it out and put the working ram in the other slot and it worked so it is not the slot, i also tried switching around the ram in different slots (there are only 2).Bottom line if the new ram is in any slot it will not boot.
I think the ram chip is broken?
I just want confirmation in case i am missing something before i take it back.
