We are attempting to add an additional 4GB of RAM (2-2GB chips) to our Dell T310 server running SBS 2008 (64bit of course). It currently has 8GB of RAM installed (4-2GB chips). The RAM is from Crucial and is the EXACT same as the RAM that is in it now (we removed the original RAM a few months back as it was slightly different than the Crucial).
After intsalling the RAM, the computer sounds like its starting up but screen stays black and never gets to the post screen.
I'm pretty confident that it is NOT the RAM.
(I'm planning on doing a test of switching out the installed RAM with the new RAM to eliminate the actual RAM as the issue)
Any other suggestions?
