    Need to know the model of the machine, but from your post it sounds like he may be trying to add DDR2 memory to a machine that only supports DDR.

    I was just reading your first post wrong. You should put the 1gb modules in slot 1 and slot 3 and put the existing modules in slot 2 and slot 4.

    The new memory will only run at the same speed as the old memory.
