Have you tried swapping them around also what are the specs of the memory ie is one DDR 333 and the other 266 or what exactly ?

    If you have different speeds of memory then the faster one should slow down so its the same speed as the other one however if one is ecc and the other one isnt then obviously it wont work hence why I was asking for the specs of the memory modules otherwise its a bit difficult to say why it is not working.

    As far as I know both memory modules have to be

    1. exactly the same as in matched pairs

    2. the memory has to be supported by the motherboard which you will know by looking at the motherboard manual as it will state in there what types of memory it supports.

    If you want to find out what memory you can go to http://www.crucial.com

    Can you please change the rating as I did try to help but you did not give me much of a chance

Will a DDR3 graphic card work as it should work on a DDR2 motherboard or ram


Add more RAM
If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the
Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.

First you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system.

You should always ask for a guarantee on the compatibilitybefore making any purchase and try to buy for working pairs if possible.
computer users often get confused when assembling or upgrading their first computer. While the most common error is made when distinguishing system memory, RAM, from hard drive space, gaming computers have an extra wrinkle to worry about.

Graphics cards use memory separately from the system memory mounted on the motherboard. Some graphics cards use the more typical DDR standard, though it's permanently attached to the graphics card circuitboard, while others use the new GDDR standard.

For the most part, the internals of the graphics card aren't relevant to the rest of the computer it's all about the connection slot.What Is DDR Memory?


DDR, or "Double Data Rate," is the standardized random access memory format for most desktop and laptop computers.
DDR RAM comes in different generational standards: DDR, DDR2, DDR3 and the newer DDR4.

RAM chips, known as DIMMs, come in only one format, as do the DIMM slots on motherboards, so a DDR3-compatible motherboard memory slot can accept only DDR3 RAM DIMMs RAM that uses an earlier or later standard is incompatible.
GDDR Memory and Graphics Cards


Modern graphics cards use a modified memory standard called GDDR, short for Graphics Double Data Rate. While similar, GDDR and DDR memory is not the same:

Most importantly, GDDR memory is integrated into the graphics card and cannot be removed. Some older graphics cards use DDR, DDR2 and DDR3 memory, but this is also integrated into the card.

Graphics cards of varying power come with different kinds of RAM as of the date of publication, most cards feature GDDR4 or GDDR5 memory

Graphics Card Motherboard Connections
Discrete desktop graphics cards are mounted inside a computer case and plugged directly into the motherboard.

Three standard connections are used for graphics cards: PCI-Express (the most common and powerful), PCI and AGP.

It is this connection that determines how much data can be shared between the graphics card and the other system components, such as the CPU, the system RAM and the hard drive.

The expansion slot standard is the primary function for determining whether or not a graphics card is compatible with any given computer:

If your motherboard has a PCI-E slot, it's compatible, if not ideally so, with all PCI-E graphics cards.
Graphics Card Memory and System Memory Compatability

Memory is an important part of game performance, but graphics memory and system memory are two different things.

For better performance, it's best to have as much graphics memory AND system memory as possible, but the different standards used by the graphics card and the motherboard are largely irrelevant.

As long as the graphics card uses the correct expansion slot standard, it will work with the corresponding motherboard, regardless of its DDR version.

Ram not working


Step 1:
A memory slot is a slot in your motherboard where you place your RAM (Random Access Memory) card. In layman's terms, the RAM is the "temporary memory" that the computer utilizes whenever it is turned on. If the computer cannot detect a RAM card installed in one of your memory slots, you have to troubleshoot the problem immediately.
Ensure that the problem is with the RAM slot and not the memory card. Turn off the computer, unplug all devices connected into the ports of your computer and open the computer casing. Refer to the manual of the computer to know the specific steps to follow in opening the computer casing. Remove the memory card from the RAM slot. To do this, unlock the card using both hands. Pull the card away from the slot to remove. Inspect the RAM card for any apparent physical damages. Wipe the card with a clean cloth to remove dust. Also wipe the memory slot in your motherboard. Place the RAM card back into the memory slot. Press the card into the slot until it clicks into place. Close the computer casing, connect the cables back into their respective slots and turn on the computer. Turn on the computer and see if the memory is detected. If the computer does not boot up, the RAM card is not detected by the computer. Assuming that you have two memory cards installed in the computer and the computer boots up, check if the second memory card is detected by the computer. Click "Start," right-click "Computer" and then "Properties." Under "System," check the amount of "Installed Memory (RAM)." If the RAM is not detected, the RAM slot or the RAM card itself may be malfunctioning. Place the RAM card into another memory slot in your motherboard and see if the card is detected. If it is detected, the other memory slot is malfunctioning. Do not install any RAM card into it to avoid further damage. If it is not detected, the RAM card may be malfunctioning. Insert another RAM card into the slot. If the RAM card is detected, the slot is malfunctioning.

1 short beep 1 long beep on hp pavilion elite m9458f pc


that means there is a memory problem,if you recently installed something inside of the case or tried to clean it ,that you might have displaced,or jared the memory loose,try to pull each 1 out seperatly and clean the contacts with 90% isopropyle alcohol and a lint free rag,let dry for a min. then reinstall into same slot,when you have done that,try to boot,if it still doesnt boot then you have bad ram.

few things to try -

unplug the cd-rom's + hardrives (your pc will boot without these, at least to your bios)

try 1 piece of memory if your using 2 or more (might have to try all seperatly incase 1 is faulty)

if you have onboard graphics remove the graphics card

make sure your power to the board is pluged in (some motherboards require a 4 pin power aswell)

try these and let me know how you get on, we can take it from there

Gateway laptop screen blank


If your laptop does not display a POST (power on start test)information your RAM could be faulty or the RAM is not making proper electrical connection.
Try reseating your RAM (memory), remove and reinsert the memory module a few times. Then reboot your laptop.

If it still does not work, then the memory may be faulty. You could test your memory in another laptop or try memory from another laptop in your laptop, to determine whether your memory is OK or not before you commit to buy new RAM.
