Incompatible RAM

by TheChas In reply to i replaced my memory card ...

Have you tried switched back to your old memory?

As crazy as it may sound, odds are that your new RAM module is not compatible with your motherboard. This is a VERY common issue with 168 pin SDRAM modules.

It is also possible that the new RAM module has more memory than the motherboard can address on a single DIMM.

Switch back to your old RAM, and find new memory that is guaranteed to be compatible with your system.
