Ok well I only had 1gb of ram(2x 512mb) so i decided to buy more cause the games i play dont run as well as i would like.
well I bought 2 1gb ram sticks off ebay and as far as i can tell its the right kind and should work but its not working.

Here is the specs for the ram
# 2GB (2X1GB) DDR PC3200
# 400Mhz
# High Density Chipset
# (Pleas see compatible motherboard list below.) 184 Pins, Desktop Memory
# Dual Channel
# Unbuffered, Non-ECC, Non-Registered
# 5ns
# 2.5V
# CL 2.5/3
# Lifetime Warranty
# Backward Compatible to PC2700/2100
# Non-ECC, None Register, Unbuffered

my motherboard is a intel d915gro
the ram i have in it now is 512MB DDR400MHz

the only problem I could find that mite be why it isnt working is its High Density and everything i found online said that intel 915g chipset could use High Density

one of the errors I got was

STOP: 0x0000001A (0x00041284, 0x7FFDD001, 0x0000034F, 0xc0883000)



also when I try to just use one/both of the 1gb sticks without the 512mb ones it gets past the windows loading screen and just stays blank, and when trying safe mode it start loading the files and stop then restarts.

well thats about it, I would like to know if im doing something wrong or if the ram just wont work in my pc.
not sure if I left any info out, but if you need anything else just replay with what info you need

FWIW: High-density RAM is a gamble, most boards prefer low-density.
