Hi , I recently bought some Crucial 2gb ram for my pc ; full specs here: Crucial 2GB RAM Specs

I inserted it correctly into my motherboard; full specs here: ASUS P5K-E Mobo

However when i booted it up i got no signal output on the screen. I removed the ram from the motherboard and booted up and it worked fine. I have two questions:

1. Have i bought bad ram?
2. Is the ram compatible with my motherboard? (which i'm sure that it is)

The RAM i'm currently using at the moment is 2 1GB sticks of Corsair XMS2 DDR2 - CM2X1024-5400C4

Unless I'm mistaken that RAM is ECC, and your motherboard doesn't support ECC modules.

The Crucial web site has suggested modules that they know will work with that motherboard, you can see these here.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I agree. It seems to be a memory compatibility problem. Stay away from ECC unless you have a server with a Xeon processor(s).
