Question about HP Pavilion a305w (DM181AR) PC Desktop
If the unit still doesn't come on with the old ram (assuming the old ram worked and the machine booted before) you might have zapped the MB accidentally while installing the new RAM, did you gound your self, take precautions to remain "static free"...? Doesn't take much with today's sensitive instruments to zap a component or two.
Try running an eraser (No 2 pencil) over the contact side of the new ram chips.. this should alleviate any excess static in the slot and then cross your fingers.
If it wasnt a laptop i would say get a new MB (motherboard) and swap it out to see if it worked but with a laptop that is no easy task (getting the replacement MB, or installing it).
