Have a Compaq SN1610NX
with MSI MS-7184 motherboard and 256mb stick original - PC3200U-30330 DDR 400 CL3.
Bought G Skiill 1G F1-3200PHU1-1GBNT PC-3200 DDR
Doesn't matter which slot I put it in, with or without the original stick, we get beep-pause-beep-pause-beep continuous on startup. Original stick alone works fine.
Are there BIOS or other settings that need to be changed for the new memory? Or is it just bad to begin with. I do not have other units to test it in.
