It would help to list the make/model of your system along with the RAM info. It could be you bought incompatible RAM or didn't install it properly. Hopefully you unplugged the power cord or if it's a laptop, removed the battery, before messing with the RAM? What happens when you try to boot - any beeps?

Sorry, but that's not much help. In the OP, you have "Agpro / 8xusb2.0 power windows xp Battery laptop RAM", which leads me to believe you're asking about a laptop.

"agpro 8x2.0usb" is not the motherboard model. You jammed everything together so I'm not sure if you have an AGP Pro 8X slot & 2 USB ports, or AGP Pro slot & eight USB 2.0 ports, or something else?

And what is "adata ddr2 1gx16"? ADATA is the brand & it's DDR2, but is it DDR2-533, DDR2-667, DDR2-800, etc? & 1GBx16? Does you board have 16 RAM slots? lol. I know that's not right. Please explain more clearly.

Original memory is "twinmos pc3200 512mb ddr-dimm"

You installed "adata memory expert ddr2 800(5) 1gx16 adqve 1a16"

That is the problem the two types of memory are completely different, place them back to back and you will notice the cut out notch is different.

Likely you have blown the memory controller chipset, which means a new motherboard !

Googling is quicker than waiting for an answer....

Then apparently it's not a laptop? Why did you put "laptop" in the Tags?

"the mother broad is ag pro 8xusb2.0 ddr400 fsb800 sata150"

As I said in my other response, that is not the motherboard model number. That is the labels of everything that's supported. As Jolicloud pointed out, it says DDR400, therefore DDR2 is the wrong RAM. If fact, DDR2 will NOT fit into a DDR slot unless you force the heck out of it. They are notched totally differently. If you forced DDR2 into a DDR slot then attempted to boot, you most likely fried the RAM & the board.
