Memory Issue With Desktop

Recommended Posts

Hello Again:hello:

I purchased a 1GB stick of ram for my desktop and for some reason it will not work with the two 512MB sticks of ram that came with it. The two 512MB sticks work fine by themselves. The 1GB stick does too, but when I try to add all 3 in at the same time I hear 4 or 5 loud beeps when I turn the pc on and I never get to my bios screen or to my desktop. SIW says that my board can hold up to 4GB of RAM and when I was putting the memory in I see "DDR2 533 or 667" on the board below the memory slots. Can someone tell me what's wrong? CPU-Z Screenshots are attached.

ECC RAM and non-ECC RAM cannot work together.

Unless there is an option in your BIOS to disable ECC ;).

Sadly I didn't see that option so I just took them back and got a refund.
