My son and I are trying to build an older compute…it boots up fine with two 1GB ddr3 pc3-1333 sticks. We tried to purchase some additional memory...two 4GB ddr3 pc3-1333 sticks. It won’t boot at all with one or both sticks. Does this mean the motherboard won’t support the 4GB sticks for some reason?
 
The old Acer Aspire X3810/X5810 models use that mainboard. The service manual states that only DIMM size 1 GB or 2 GB is supported.

Examples of supported 2 GB DIMMs:

MEMORY SAMSUNG DDR3 1333MHZ 2G M378B5673DZ1-CH9 KN.2GB0B.007
MEMORY UNIFOSA DDR3 1333MHZ 2G UNB GU512303EP0200 KN.2GB0B.008
MEMORY SAMSUNG DDR3 1333MHZ 2G M378B5673EH1-CH9 KN.2GB0H.006
MEMORY MICRON DDR3 1333MHZ 2G MT16JTF25664AY-1G4D1 KN.2GB0B.014
MEMORY SAMSUNG DDR3 1066MHZ 2G UNB M378B5673DZ1-CF8 KN.2GB04.009
