Hello,

I just purchased some new ram, when i installed it the pc does a long beep for about 2-3 seconds pauses and beeps again continuously until shutdown. the motherboard and ram are listed below, are they incompatible?

mobo - http://www.gigabyte.us/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3...

ram - 8GB (2x 4GB) DDR2 PC2-3200P 2Rx4 CL3 400Mhz 240-Pin Memory Kingston ECC ram ( 290819719358 )


Thanks for your help!

That is ddr2 400 mhz memory, the mobo supports only 800 mhz ddr2 or above, best bet it is incompatible.
