I have just ungraded new ram (2g, 2x1g) into my 3 year old computer. But when i try to boot the computer, nothing happens. Nothing shows up on the screen, but the computer is running, and theres this beeping sound. I put my old ram in, and it works perfectly. I have tried to mix up the rams, all kinds of things, but nothing seems to happen.


computer: dell vestro 200

cpu:1.80 gigahertz Intel Core Duo
64 kilobyte primary memory cache
1024 kilobyte secondary memory cache

motherboard: Dell Inc. 0CU409


graphics: geforce 9500(recently upgraded)

Looks like you have RAM above 1.8v. Dell PCs will usually not work with anything higher than 1.8v.
