I hope I'm in the right section, let me just run through what I did.. My computer had 1 Gig of Ram to start with according to the My Computer tab, I install 2 extra Gigs thinking I'm going to have a total of 3 Gigs. When I boot and check, It still read 1 Gig.
So i mess with it, take my old Ram out and noticed that it read 2 Gigs. Weird (my computer said I had 1 Gig to start with), so I remove the 2 gigs that I just installed from the second slot to the first slot. I start up again (without my old RAM) and check the My Computer, and this time it reads 2 Gigs like it supposed to. Perfect. But now I want to see if I can have my RAM that i thought was 1 Gig ( but it's really 2) installed next to my new 2 Gig for a total of 4 Gigs. I also checked if my mother board was able to handle 4 gigs and it can. So i put my old "2 gigs" that were originally there into the second slot. When I come to start this time, I get a black screen reading:

I'm on my laptop right now, and don't have my system specs other than knowing that I have Windows XP SP3. Sorry for the unorganized description. Your help is much appreciated.
