I have this biostar board and it doesn't list support for pc4200 ram. You may need an older chipset board, or try boosting the ram voltage and set the speed manually at 667, same as pc5300. Try just one stick at a time; use the "del" key and try getting into the bios. Otherwise, look for some faster ram on craigslist.
