If this isn't the proper forum for this, forgive me. In my quest for building a good gaming computer, I've made some errors and listened to some opinions I shouldn't have. Right now though the issue at hand is this..
I have a gigabyte 8SQ800 with intel p4 and 512 mb ddr sdram. I bought ..OCZ Enhanced Latency 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit System Memory. I went to the configuration site for OCZ and they claim it will work with my board, but when I add the 2 sticks of ram in any of the configurations possible slot 1-3 2-4 1-4 2-3, I get power to my tower and that's where it ends. The fans kick on and then the beep that starts it all doesn't happen. I have no monitor or anything. I can't access bios with them in to see if I need to tweak it a little. I'm lost. I've read all the how to's, the installation guides for OCZ and for Gigabyte....and yet ..nothing.

This is me right about now :thumbsup: and I don't know what else to do.

I've tried that, I've tried taking the battery out of the motherboard and rebooting. I don't know if my problem is voltage control, but I can't access bios with the ocz's in anyway. If my problem is with the voltage do you have any suggestions on how to fix it considering my situation?

Hi clutchaddict.
If it were me, i'd change memory, plain and simple.
It either works or it doesn't. Not a fan of OCZ, never have been. Lots of problems out there. :thumbsup:
The only workaround you would have is to install memory it'll boot with, quickly make the appropriate changes in cmos setup and hope something doesn't get fried before you can shut it down.
Not worth it in my opinion.

There may be a BIOS update that address memory compatibility. Its worth a check to make sure your BIOS is updated to the latest revision.
