    Ok I solved the problem on my own already. As it turns out, the new RAM had died on me so I just took it out and replaced it with the old RAM and shipped back the dead RAM for a replacement.

Hi
start with removing the added ram try starting up, if it doesn\t start up does it beep?

if noting happens remove all the ram, the computer should definitely beep now.
Add only the original memory and try starting up you should get picture.

This seems to be a old problem and if you don\t need assistance in solving it. It would be great if you would share to the world how you fixed your problem so other users can benefit from your experience.

Thank you, Ekse

I'm afraid it has to do with Apple's firmware on iMacs. A compatible 3rd party memory dealer is RAMJET.
From their website, you can see:
Apple Computers have proven too demanding for generic PC memory modules. Apple users have been forced to either pay Apple's high prices for upgrades, or buy 3rd party modules and be subjected to system crashes, boot failures, and sub-par performance. Worse still, most 3rd party vendors had no idea that Apple machines demanded a higher standard.
At Ramjet, we start with modules built 100% to Apple's original specifications, but we don't stop there. In our compatibility center, we have a comprehensive array of Apples, every platform built since 1996. Other memory companies try to test for Apple compatibility using generic RAM module testers, whereas we test our RAM in the same Mac you're upgrading.

I just put in2gb of mem but only read one gb


normal PNY issue, find your receipt and contact pny's rma department, ship it off with RMA number and get a replacement,, the only thing pny is a stickler for is the receipt to prove your original ownership as they don't allow second hand warrenty.. but who's to say who's receipt it is... there is no FIX for this, the ram is notorious for going bad

How do I find out if the memory I just bought from you is working how can I tell how much memory I'm useing


When installed correctly into your computer it will show on the black boot up screen if it is set to show boot details.

Otherwise you can go to the control panel in windows and click on the system icon which will also show you how much memory is in your computer.

If you see no difference or the computer does not boot wih the new memory contact the supplier for information on returning it or further testing.

PNY Does not Honor ''Lifetime Warranty'' for memory


SAME HERE
Ram installed about 2 years ago I think 2x4gb ddr3 sodimms
Failing after a year started as blue screens and not recognized short time after.
Without receipt = no warranty
Got it as a gift = no warranty
Oem = no warranty
Purchase with gift card and misplace receipt = no warranty
House burn down with all paperwork = no warranty
Not good at keeping records =- no warranty
I have been in contact with PNY and can you tell they have told me without the receipt they can do nothing for me?
COMPLETE WAISTE of the word warranty.
and yes there support people get smart with you and quote other companies warranties and state see they do they same thing!
WAY TO STAND OUT!
Why even have a lifetime warranty, just call it a "prove it" warranty?

Ground yourself on the computer case.

Make sure the notche(s) line up.

KINGSTON VALUE RAM 1GB PC3200 MEMORY


Hi,
You have the answer in your question. I have checked the PC specification and you are right, it uses PC2700 memory. Therefore you need to install PC2700 memory. PC3200 memory will be the wrong speed and will not be supported.
