If the motherboard manual says expandable to 2gb why on earth would you expect it to accept 4gb?

Go to www.crucial.com

Do a system scan. It will tell you what is compatible and the maximum you can install. Research before ordering. Horse before cart.

" i ordered PNY Optima MD4096KD2-800 4GB"

Already been ordered? See if you can cancel before it ships. Why would you order DDR2-800 if your old RAM was DDR2-667? Post the make/model of your system.
