Question about PC Desktops
It's likely that the 2 sticks are different types/speeds of memory, so either one works, but both in tandem do not. Even if identical, it's possible that when 2 sticks are installed, they will automatically attempt to run in "Dual channel" mode - and they may not be able to do so because of timing issues. You might have better luck using a 2x1GB pair bought because it specifically supports your machine. Corsair's web site has a memory configurator that helps you to pick the correct type of memory for your machine.
