Second RAM slot not working.
Hi, this isn't really a problem with Linux but a hardware issue.
My friend recently bought a memory upgrade for another friend, when i was round at his house i tried to install it for him. Usually this thing is fairly simple, just plug it in and go.
The problem is the second ram slot appears to not be working. i have tried each module on their own in the first ram slot, both working fine. I tried them both on the second ram slot, the computer seems to fail POST, (no case speaker or LED display, but the screen stays black)
also, putting them both in has the same effect.
sorry about the [DOT] & [SPACE] but the link is broken otherwise

The clock rating on these modules are a little high for that board, but I thought they would automatically underclock at the very least for them to both work.
I tried to reset the CMOS, but couldn't find the jumper, so i just took out the battery for 5 mins, does it have the same effect?
any suggestions on what it could be? could it be something with the clock?
Thanks in advance. :)
