New RAM - cant boot PC

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.hardware (More info?)

Got 2 sticks of new RAM. Exactly same as my other 2 sticks except
different make.

No matter what combination i try, i cant get them to work. The pc
powers up, with the green and orange light on constantly, but the
monitor never powers up.

Could both of these RAM sticks be damaged?

Please help!

Thanks

    the problem

    Whenever I build computers (frequently) I always purchase what I need at the
    beginning. If I have to upgrade a computer I will remove what is in there
    now and get what I need from a manufacturer (I can always use the removed
    RAM in another computer down the line). This way all of the sticks are
    usually from the same date/batch/run. I also buy from reputable
    manufacturers with great warranty policies!

    I seldom have problems with RAM.
