Question about PC Desktops
Even though the memory stick sizes are the same, and the speed, there are other differences between memory types, such as parity/non parity, 2x32, 16x4 etc. more than likely, the speed of the memory sticks are different. the easiest fix for this is put the slower memory sticks in bank0 and bank1 (logical numbering used) and then the faster memory sticks in bank3 and bank4. this will cause the faster memory sticks to run at the speed of the slower memory sticks. If your sticks are parity and non-parity mix, then you will probably not be able to combine them.

The beeping that you hear it's your motherboard telling you there's a problem, the beeping in esence is a code (like morse code but the same) so it has a meaning...
since it's memory what you changed this simply means 3 possible things:
1. (likely): the memory are probably not entirely compatible, check the motherboard documentation for each one of the motherboards to find out specifically which type of memory can be on a system, the capacity (512), the type (ddr), and the speed (3200/400mhz) is part of the compatibility issues, but find out about error correction type, front bus speed of the mother board, and the cas number.
2. (possible) some systems are picky with memory.. sometimes using different sets (from different companies) becomes an issue.
3. (rare but possible). did you handle the memory sticks with care? do you know what ESD is? and did you ground all the components accordingly to protect your system from ESD while working with this components and while working inside the computer.. if not you may have fried a component and you may not have even notice it... (risk when working with no equipment or when not taking preventive measurements)
