In my experience, I find that Kingston RAM can be very picky about what you pair it with or what you install it in, which is why I always recommend either PNY or Corsair now.

Check your manufacturer for an APPROVED MEMORY LIST and see if that memory is on it.

Well there are many RAM's that aren't in the approved list but they work fine.
To OP,your kingstone RAMs work fine right ? and as soon as you put the new RAMs that you bought your PC doesn't boot ? if so then if its possible test your RAMs in another PC if it didn't work i think your new RAMs are faulty

Hey! thanks for the tip.My dealer checked the RAM and found it was not compatible in dual channel with kingston. He put me a Corsair 2GB DDR2 XMS2 and it works fine!!

thanks again!!
