Hello, all. I have to add this. Ordered the memory on Friday and got it today, Monday. Pulled old memory and popped in new. Didn't have monitor or keyboard plugged in. Computer started with no beeps. Plugged in monitor and hooked up to built in graphics card and it wouldn't come on. Moved cable to new video card. Started up and video is fine. This thing beeped from the get go with built in graphics chip or new video card.
Now, my question to you experts. HP specs call for a pc 2700 sdram 184 pin chip. I pulled a pc3200 chip which was originally installed, I think. I didn't put it in. Is this normal? It seemed to work fine for a year. Come to think about it, we did send the CPU back to HP because there were problems with it maybe last Feb. Herman
