I just bought 2 Gb of RAM (two 1 Gb, 400Mhz DIMMS) for my A8N5X-based computer, and after getting the RAM installed, the computer doesn't boot. Previously, I had two 512 Mb 400Mhz DIMMS, and it worked fine; however, after taking all the RAM out -- even what was there -- and only putting in one of the new sticks into the A1 or B1 slots, the computer still doesn't boot. I don't see anything on screen, not even the BIOS.
I have no idea what's going on. I don't have a PC speaker to see if I'm getting posts, but the computer works fine with the old RAM. Any ideas?

System Memory Features
The D845GLLY board provide the following memory features:
Two DIMM sockets supporting 3.3 V (only) 168-pin 133 MHz Single Data Rate (SDR) SDRAM DIMMs with gold-plated contacts
Unbuffered non-ECC DIMMs only
Maximum total system memory: 2 GB; minimum total system memory: 64 MB
Serial Presence Detect (SPD) DIMMs only
Suspend to RAM
Do not use ECC DIMMs with the Desktop Board. Using ECC DIMMs could damage the Desktop Board. Integrator's Notes:
Registered DIMMs are not supported on the Desktop Board.
This Desktop Board has been designed to support DIMMs based on 512 Mbit technology for a maximum onboard capacity of up to 2 GB, but this technology has not been validated on this board.
To be fully compliant with all applicable PCI33 SDRAM memory specifications, the board should be populated with DIMMs that support the Serial Presence Detect (SPD) data structure. This allows the BIOS to read the SPD data and program the chipset to accurately configure memory settings for optimum performance.
hope this helps
