Hi. Last week I purchased a IBM Thinkcentre used and 2 sticks of 512mb ram from Geeks.com. I received it today and everything is working perfectly. Two sticks of 256 mb of ram came with the computer. However, when I install the two new sticks of ram, the computer beeps when it's turned on and refuses to boot. I tried removing both the stock sticks of ram and trying each new stick one at a time and then both at the same time yet I get the same thing. Can anyone help me out?

Just double checked and found out that the ram I ordered is 2100 and the ram I needed was 3200. So a stupid error on my part.

Don't feel bad.
I've ordered the wrong memory [more then once]. :thumbsup:
