Question Really simple issue with a gig strip...

I bought two gig strips awhile ago for my home pc. I managed to install them successfully and they worked fine.

Recently I got a new computer though and ran across a problem. I took the old gig strips out out of my computer and tryed to install them on my new one. I took out the new computers default 250 mb strip and replaced it with the gig ones. However... When I start the PC now it just beeps and I don't even get a display on the monitor. I even tryed putting the old strip back, but it still does the same thing.

I'm not very tech savvy at all, and am wondering if I put the strips in wrong or something... If you could help in any way, i'd be really greatful. Thanks.

try the sticks one at a time to see if it's one or the other. and no, you cannot install a stick of ram incorrectly.
