DDR or DDR2


DDR 266 is DDR, not DDR 2 . The 266 is the frequency value in Mhz.

Try having the memory refunded or resell it on Ebay, so that you do not lose your money.

Here is supported memory, many older motherboards do not accept modules of over 512Mb each, ask to the seller:

Ok i am just guessing here

maybe your motherboard does not support

ddr2 rams and hence it wont boot up as it does not detect any ram in the slots......

try to boot with one old and one new ram (ddr and ddr2) and post the result

are you sure whether the ddr2 ram is supported?

Upgrading Ram


Hi,

Make sure you have the RAM seated in slot #1, and that you do not have DDR RAM installed as well, as DDR2 with DDR RAM will not work. Also, make sure the RAM you bought is on the QVL (Qualified Vendors List) for that motherboard. I know I have had problems with ASUS motherboards and OCZ ram before.

Ram memory upgrade not recognized in system info.


does your mother board ddr2 compatible? do you have the manual of your motherboard? because there are brands listed in your manual which are compatible. if you have an existing ddr installed temporarily uninstall this and try this ddr2 512mb alone and let it run, if a beep beep sound occurs that means this is not compatible with your computer. remove this and bring this together with your ddr that work to your supplier, ideally the cast latency timer of these should be the same including the brand. hoping that this will help you
