HP NX9000 will not start after installing new RAM

HP NX9000 will not start after installing new RAM to upgrade from 512 to 1024. The RAM module fitted is a DDR 333Mhz (the same as is in the machine currently). Is there something that I have to do other than plug it in and switch on again?

Where did you get the new RAM from?  It is possible the new memory is bad.  Remove the new memory and start the PC.  If the PC works the new RAM is the problem.  Whoever you purchased the new RAM from will most likely replace it without any issues.

I have a HP/Compaq NX9010 that i have swapped and mixed different types and speeds of RAM without any issue.  Bad memory just happens even if its brand new.

Test each stick one at a time in the first ram slot.  Memtest is a very good testing tool, available at: http://www.memtest.org/ or it is included in the Ultimate Boot CD (www.ultimatebootcd.com).

Could be the new stic of ram you have, or the second slot on the mobo.  Test each one individually.  If all sticks of ram test okay in the first slot, then try them in the second slot.

you must take care of static charges when replacing ram; ground yourself, or touch grounded parts first to discharge.  you may just have ruined the new ram

Thank you for your help - the memory was indeed faulty. Please forgive me for not responding until now but I have been out of circulation for a while.
