I removed the memory sticks and now when I try to put them back the computer beeps. This is my son's computer and I need to fix it soon.I did not look at the memory sicks before I removed them so I am unsure if they are in the right location. One memory sick is a Samsung DDR 256mb. The other is a kingston KVR. KVR333/256R. The computer is a HP Pavilion A1200e. Thank you so much for your help! :hello:

Will the computer start with just 1 stick?

Did you test each RAM stick individually?

Yes, the Kingston, when plugged in, does not beep. The samsung stick makes it beep regardless where I plug it in. The kingston stick does not look like a normal ram stick.
