Hey everybody :twisted:
I just got my new RAM delivered this morning, excited as i was with the 4GB (x2 2gb sticks). The RAM was bought from 'Patriot' i took out my old 2 RAM sticks, 512 each. I put in the new Patriot RAM and soon as i switched on the PC there was a continuous beeping and Windows XP would not start up, but it works fine with my old one.

I've attached my System Information as a CPU-Z report file so everything needed should be in there if not just ask =]

I was just wandering if there's anyway of getting this RAM to work so i don't have to send it back?

Thanks everyone =]
