Hi,
The system is a celeron setup with windows 7 installed. It used to work fine with two 512mb ddr2 sticks not matched then one day it would not boot, just a black screen and no recoghnition by the monitor, so as a process of illimunation I took out one stick and hey presto all worked fine so I though a dufff stick. No I tried that stick in without the other and that worked. Two slots for ram I tried a single stick in each slot so the slots were ok. So I then got a matching pair of sticks and inserted both, black screen. Took out one all ok. Cleared BIOS just in case, no other cards in as all on board. Mobo will take 2gb max so ok there.
My way out was to get a single 1 gb stick and all works.
So any ideas on why this will not work with two sticks when it used to.
cheers for any answers

It would help to know the make and model of this computer, or the motherboard if it is a custom build.

It would also help to know the model and manufacturer of the RAM modules.

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

Did you try both sticks in both RAM slots? Maybe one slot is dead?
