Here is the memory site for that motherboard. As you can see, only DDR2 modules are listed.

The support site that I previously linked you to for that motherboard shows that it supports DDR2 modules. There's no mention of DDR3 modules.

Use the link in post #6 to allow the Crucial System Scanner to load and run. After it's done and it displays a report, copy-and-paste the link to that report here so we can view it.
