Is the memory the right type? It sounds like the board isn't sensing any memory. HP do often use boards that have particular memory dedicated to them. Should be DDR RAM pc3200 (unbuffered, and you can have up to 2048mb Ram Max. (2 Slots)

Ms 6390 one long beat mean???

if you mean a long beep this is called post pre operating sytem the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off.
make sure your ram modules are securely seated with no dust in the sockets also check motherboard to hard drive leads uncluding electrical extensions make sure connections are good and dust free
hope this helps you

Why won't MB recognise new 2 x 1Gb Memory?

The motherboard does not support 1 GB modules; 512 MB is the maximum the motherboard will recognize. Usually, the computer won't even work if the memory isn't supported but in this case it does.

Thanks and please remember to give this a thumbs up rating.
