Specs: Windows XP, DDR 400
HI .

I have a strange problem with my computer. Recently i bought 2 no. DDR RAM . Size of RAM is 1 GB. Both are of same make and frequency.
The problem is that my computer does not boot with One of the RAM. While it boots with another RAM.
I have changed the Slots and tried every bit of combinations, Resetted the CMOS. But my computer does not boot with the RAM
I have checked with other Motherboard, it works Fine.

But it does not work with my motherboard.

Any Suggestions are welcomed.

If all the slots work with some RAM and 1 of the new RAM sticks also works then the obvious answer is the other stick is defective.

System Configuration

P4 Processor
Gigabyte 8I865GME-775-RH Motherboard Supports DDR 400 RAM
RAM : Transcend 1 GB DDR 400Mhz

IF the RAM is Faulty, then it wont have worked with another machine.
THE RAM is not Faulty as it works with another Machine.

When i insert the RAM, The System does not boots up. I mean i cannot see the display, Whereas i can see the machine , fans and hard disks , processor is ON.
There is no display neither there is beep sound.

Any suggestions will be welcomed.

Download your memory support list here:
If the memory is on the list and does not work, it probably is bad. If it appears to work on another machine, it may be jut a more tolerant machine where memory is concerned. Run Memtest86 from a bootable CD and test it on both machines, one stick at a time to verify the memory. If it reports errors, it is bad.

There is a small possibility, the memory is not being set correctly by your BIOS and resetting it manually in your BIOS might help. If you do this, you must test it with Memtest to verify it before you use it or you may begin getting problems that you will blame on Windows, your hard drive, your drivers, and other things without realizing that the memory is to blame.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
