Pc Doesn't start after adding a new RAM

noxx786
Hey there..
i have an ASUS motherboard with DDR 2 ram..
i recently bought a 1 GB DDR2 ram..
My problem is..that when i put the ram in the cabinet ...
my CPU starts but the no display comes...
this problem fades away as soon as i remove that RAM..
just for info...in my old RAM ..there is something written as "DDR2 800" and its quite short in height..
whereas..the new one is just the opposite with these written words "DDR@ 667(5) 1gx8"..
Please help...

    Your motherboard appears not to support the slower speed ram. Google the ASUS model number and you should get a list of supported RAM speeds. All RAM is not created equally. :)

    Check with ASUS about RAM compatibility for your system. Generally speaking, motherboards are built to support only one type of memory. You cannot mix and match SDRAM, DDR, DDR2, or DDR3 memory on the same motherboard in any system. They will not function and will not even fit in the same sockets.

    The Crucial System Scanner automatically analyzes your computer memory information and suggests an upgrade that's guaranteed compatible.
