Try yanking the old ram out, and booting with only the new stuff. Check your
motherboard jumpers, etc. As noted, check the speed of the ram. Check the
motherboard's website for part numbers (I can verify the correct ram for a
particular motherboard, possibly, if you can't find the info). Dump bayou
water on it out of frustration. Whatever.
