I have just tried to help a friend put in some memory I bought for him and when I put the mem in the computer doesn't boot up.
The motherboard is an ATHLON XP2700+ and the memory is DDR2700 matrix.
THe two memory sticks that were alreasy on the motherboard were ddr2700 also. We tried as many combinations of the stick as possible and it only seems to work in the original config.
When theres a problem, the lights on the front of the machine turn opn and the fan kicks off, but the monitor doesn't register anything and stays on standby. There is no beeping at all.
Is this common, or simple to resolve?
Thanks in advance,
