    Hello
    I have a pc with Intel Pentium 4 inside.Its motherboard has 4 DIMM sockets.It had already 2 DIMMS 512 each.I bought two more of the same type( KIngston KVR667D2N5/512 RAM). After I installed( so as to have 2GB totally) them to the two free sockets ,computer beeps when I boot it up and I have only black screen.
    However I remove all the RAMs and installed the two new ones on the the other two sockets.No problem then.PC boots normally.Then I installed the two OLD RAM on the two other sockets and PC beeps again!
    So I guess that sthg is wrong with the sockets????

    Any ideas will be appreciated.

    Regards

    Axilleas

    Thanks for the answer.But I dont think that I did sthg wrong in installation of the rams.
    Yes it can support the difference.
    I forgot to mention that in the beggining system accepted the one new DIMM( totally 1. GB) When i installed the second one , problem started.
