Well the first thing to check is to see how much ram your board can take,look in your mobo manual , it will not recognize anything above.
it also must be the correct ram ie sdram.ddr,ddr2,sod
search on the net if you do not have the manual

if all is correct, when you boot up go into the bios (dont change anything) then exit "saving changes",this may solve your problem
to go into the system bios you need to hit a key when booting up ,sometimes its Delete, but it will show on the screen as you boot what key you need to use.

good luck

Memory 1 gb wil not accept

Check with your motherboard manual or the website refering to your model and make to see what type of memory it will support. After that what type of memory do you have, is it ECC registered or NON ECC registered as the asrock would only accept unbuffered non registered ddr2 rams. If you do have the coorect type of memory and after power the system on and no display or beeps is heard, then it could be a bad memory or incompatible ram. Check this link for your motherboard spec and memory support....

It means the most your motherboard will support per slot is a 256 RAM. Also, on older systems, some RAMs are not compatible with others.

System wont show memeory upgrade

thing you need to know:
  • how much ram can the board take (you can't put more in)
  • the type of ram (sod,sdram,ddr,ddr2) speed is less importantas it will drop back to the slowest chip.
  • look in the motherboard manual to find out
  • search internet if you do not have the manual
  • static electricity can kill electronic compomants so ensure you have earthed yourself before going into the box or handling the chips (this is a bit late but educational)
sometimes you need to go into the bios (change nothing but "save on exit) the system should see the new ram
good luck
