Odd problem adding new memory to PC
I recently attempted to upgrade one of my pcs by adding two 1G sticks. I get the black screen of death on startup, even the mobo bios doesn't appear on the monitor.
When I remove the sticks everything is fine.
This is odd to me because I have added memory on many other computers and it has never been a big deal.
I'm guessing this happened because of my op system? I have Vista Business edition student version. Is this some security feature in vista?
My op system is only 32 bit, so I can only use 3G, tried to install 4G but didn't think that would be a problem.
I'm using exactly the same memory as before, Corsiar dominator pc2-8500 c5.
If these sticks are bad, could they cause the black screen of death on startup?
