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 -

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