I bought a computer off Dell with 256mb RAM and recently bought another 256mb RAM to add to it, but when I turn on the computer with the new RAM in place the computer won't start up and instead just makes beeping sounds. Does this mean the RAM I bought isn't compatible, or is it maybe just bad RAM? (which might well be likely as I bought the RAM second hand off eBay).

The Ram already in my computer has the specs:
Pc2700u
Cl2.5
DDR 333Mhz

The RAM I bought is:
PC2100R
Cl2.5
DDR

Thanks for your help

Zar - if the system works fine w/o the new ram and only beeps at startup with the new ram, it's 99% likely the ram is bad, or wrong for the system.

if your computer takes PC2700(333MHz), why did you buy PC2100(266MHz)?? Exchange the stick for a PC2700 CL2.5.
