New Ram not working
I have a Compaq sr5310f with a ASUS IPILP-LC (Lancaster8) mobo, and a e4400 C2D processor that I recently upgraded to. I recently decided to upgrade my ram from 2x512mb Micron mt8htf6464ay-6678b DDR2 PC2-5300 unbuffered to Samsung 2x1gb M378T2953CZ3-CE6 ddr2 pc2-5300 unbuffered. When I took out the 2x512mb ram cards and installed the new Samsung ones, my computer wouldn't boot. My monitor would just say no signal and never reach the bios screen. Then I put the old ram back in to see if that would work and it did. The I took one old Micron one out and put one new Samsung one in and I had 1 of each type in my computer. I turned it on and it booted perfectly fine and told me I have 1.5 gbs of ram. Then I put both 1 gb ram sticks in again to see if it would work and it didn't. Can anyone tell me why both 1 gb sticks don't work together but work seperately with the 512mb ones? (I only have 2 slots)
Reset the CMOS memory the right way as is described in the motherboard manual using the clear CMOS link with the power cord unplugged.
