i have a p4 2.6 ghz 512 mb ram ddr pc 2700
compaq presario S5322CC
idk my motherboard model

couple of weeks ago i got some ram i ordered off newegg kingston hyper x unbuffered 512 mb ddr dimm pc 2700 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16820144104
it meets all my pc specs ddr , pc 2700 etc when i turned the pc on with the ram in it the processing light would turn on but nothing woould show up on the monitor and i know it wasnty really booting because i didnt hear my video card start (i can hear the fan on it when its running) so i figured the ram was bad also i had my I.t teacher test it and he said the pc he tested it on wouldnt even boot with the ram in it. So i returned it to newegg and got a rplace ment yesterday, i put it in my pc and THE SAME STUFF HAPPENED, nothing on the monitor and nothing booted so now im wondering, is it possible to recive two bad items in a row? or is my pc ruiining it some how? it meets all my pc specs ddr pc 2700 184 pin all the reviews say the ram is the best ram they've ever used and they experinced no problems any input or suggestions would be much appreciated
thanks

Are you just installing one stick of ram or two sticks? Some motherboards require two pieces of equivalent size ram to be installed at the same time? Explain how many memory slots you have etc

Download Everest V1.51 from oldversion.com (it will be in the utilities section).

The reason to ger V1.51 is that it is the last freeware version of Everest that had a software module which is extremely useful.

It will tell you everything that is in your computer - both hardware and software.

Kingston is ok but it is not the highest quality you can get.

Make sure the ram is seated properly.

If you have a Pent 4 Hyperthreading processor and a motherboard that supports hyperthreading, or one of the dual core processors either Athlon or Intel you have to install the ram in matched pairs in a certain order.

Everest will tell you what you have installed and where it is installed.

Either order more of the same spec ram as what you have (you can order larger sticks though but the specs have to be the same) or use the Crucial Wizard at crucial.com to tell you what kind of ram works in your computer. (You still need the same specs, ie PC3200 400mhz for example or PC2700 or whatever you have installed)

By the way, you really need to install SP2

If you go to Kingston's website they tell you the compability of all their memory modules, and KHX2700/512 is not compatible with Compaq Presario S5322CC. Only KTC-D320/128, KTC-D320/256 and KTC-D320/512 are.

No Ram will be fully compatable unless it matches the specs of what you presently have in your computer unless you are replacing that ram and not going to use it.

Download Everest and see what your computer came with or look it up by the model on support at HP.

It does not have to be the same size (ie 256megs) but it must be the same spec IE ddr2 or ddr or whatever and PC3200 or 2700 or whatever.

Your motherboard supports the following:
Memory Type DDR SDRAM (Supports dual channel if the processor is dual channel which )
Memory Speed PC3200 (400 MHz), PC2700 (333 MHz), PC2100 (266 MHz)
Four DDR DIMM (184-pin)

You need to buy the same memory speed as what is already installed. It must also match the latency and if ecc is supported or not which might be why the Kingston ram you got won't work.

If you have PC3200 buy PC3200 and buy two of the same sticks.

If your processor is dual channel or hyperthreading, you must install the ram in the slots in a specific configuration - the same configuration for each channel.

By the way - you are putting your computer and those of everyone in your address book at severe risk by not upgrading to SP2.
SP2 was primarily a security improvement update with many exploit patches but has many increases in operability and performance too.

You should do a few malware scans and upgrade asap using Windows Updates.

Also - there is no more support for SP1 so if you want continued support from Microsoft you must get SP2.

The report you posted shows the specs of just one of the sticks of Ram you have installed. Where is the other one? (your first post shows you have 512mb Ram and the system came with 256 when new.

If this is from the Everest report, open Everest again, click on the + to the left of motherboard to expand the category, click on SPD

You will see the two sticks of Ram at the top.
Click on Reports at the top left
choose Quick Report SPD
choose plain text
Paste everything in the report here before the "Debug - PCI "

Providing you have no malware you can install SP2. You show having SP1 installed and SP2 will bring all SP1 updates current but not updates since SP2, so you will need to go back to Windows Updates after installing SP2 and get all the subsequent updates - there are quite a few.

Here are the specs on your computer:

Compaq Presario S5322CC Desktop PC - Product Specifications
Product number
DT147A
Introduction date
29-October-2003
Compaq Presario S5322CC desktop PC
Hardware
Base processor and speed

Pentium 4 (HT) 2.60 GHz
HyperThreading Technology (HT)


800 MHz front side bus
mPGA478

Chipset
865G

Motherboard manufacturer
ASUS
Motherboard specifications

Memory
Component Attributes
Ram (installed) 256 MB (1 x 256)

Maximum allowed 2 GB (2 x 1GB) requires replacement of the installed 256MB DIMM
Speed supported PC2700 MB/sec

Type 184 pin, DDR SDRAM
DIMM slots Four




The Ram from Newegg should be compatable.
According to their configurator it is specified for your model Compaq
Presario S5322CC / S5322CC-B
Non-ECC Unbuffered
Part # Speed Capacity Datasheet
PSD5124001 3200 512 MB PDF
PSD512333 2700 512 MB PDF
PSD5123331 2700 512 MB PDF

But in order to take advantage of the hyperthreading capability you need two sticks, not one.

When you install the new ram, the same configuration must be installed in each channel.

From Compaq-
"The memory configuration of channel A (the first two sockets) and channel B (the second two sockets) must be identical."


You show 512MB installed now. Is that two sticks of 256?

Motherboard specs from Compak shows Dual Channel capability
Memory Type DDR SDRAM (Supports dual channel)
You may have to enable it in the bios.
