You haven't posted the make and model of PC, what you have posted is the processor type and possibly the graphics card. so tricky to give you advice.

So I saw,not much info there either.

On that thread I put a link to what I guessed what was the basic system an HP Workstation xw6200 normally used as a server. If that is the system the link also shows a diagram of the motherboard. Where to install the RAM should be fairly obvious but does depend on how the original 2 Gb was configured.

and on other thread I posted link to crucial video of installing ram.

Here it is again: just click in place

video shows how to fit ram

Should have been fitted by now.

hi, yes thanks for all the info, been down those routes,.. i have located and firmly fitted the memory several times and keep getting 5 beep warning, any other things I can try? I was recommended this memory as compatible by the people I got the comp off. Someone mentioned BIOS on another thread I read... but if this is relevant don't know what to do with it etc. thanks for info. john

one more detail is the two occupied ram slots are black, and the two spare ones are white? would this be off any note, or just a colour/difference/brand etc and of no issue?

Still have not mentioned what make model PC it is,you just mention the CPU. I did ask earlier. If i knew what motherboard you had it would be easier to advise.

  Woolwell 17:14 PM 15 Mar 12

It would also help if you mentioned what type of extra RAM you got.
