I am trying to replace a bad memory module that was causing my PC to crash. Removing the module stopped the crashes, but I would like to return the amount of memory to the original amount. I have a Gateway SX2800-01 that came with 2x2GB of DDR3 memory installed. The old module is a PC3-10600 type. I have tried installing new RAM with the same density and speed from two different manufacturers, but in both cases the result is the same: I get a continuous buzzing noise after powering on the PC and no output to the monitor. I've checked and double-checked that the new RAM is seated correctly in the slot with the clips engaged. I'm not too knowledgeable about computers but I thought if I installed memory of the same size and speed into the same slot, the PC should accept it. Any advice or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
