    are you sure it is the right speed of memory?  Make sure the memory is correct speed. What is the exact model of your computer?

    I would take it back. The not turning on signifies a bad memory module. Return the memory and get a different stick

Alert! unsupported memory configuration. Please populate DIMM1


There should be 4 DIMM slots - two with white tabs and two with black tabs. DIMM 1 should be the white tabbed slot closest to the processor. Slots 1 and 3 (both white tabbed slots) should have RAM installed first, then slots 3 and 4 for additional RAM. If Slot 1 already has RAM in it, pull it out and push it back in to reseat it. If that doesn't work, replace the RAM in Slot 1.

YES. The slots are for different kinds of memory. ONLY use the 2 new cards and insert them into the SAME colour slots. You should NOT mix memory types. Forget the old modules.

make sure the largest memory module is in the slot closest to CPU then push down firmly each end of the ram module
as for the notches the one with one notch is ddr ram the one with 2 notches sdram make sure that the module you are trying to install matches the slots and some brands are not combatible with other brands
good luck
